Martin think you might have planted them in the damp corner? :-)

MartinB MartinB 19 May 2010 08:26:01

Thanks Bill, it will be damp from now on :-)

LindaB LindaB 19 May 2010 10:51:35

That was fast!

Myrtle Myrtle 19 May 2010 13:12:57

They are so beautiful!

Rachel Rachel 19 May 2010 20:37:32

Can't wait to see the underplanting. They look super.

MartinB MartinB 19 May 2010 22:34:54

Hi Linda you do know that we bought new ones. Rachel on the ball as usual.

There in an avenue from the teahouse are they Martin?

MartinB MartinB 19 May 2010 22:52:20

They are, I will put up a pic from the Thai house tomorrow, there are thousands of bizzy lizzies going in the middle soon

Rachel Rachel 19 May 2010 23:01:59

The middle? Between the trees? I will watch and learn.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 19 May 2010 23:03:48

And who is going to be planting all these Impatiens, then?

Deborah Deborah 19 May 2010 23:14:19

Me! Thousands was a bit of an exaggeration. More like a couple of hundred or so. I am planning to make it look like a jewelled carpet leading up to the buddha (you will see a picture of him soon, I am sure :) I am going to use 3 colours. Shocking pink, zingy orange and white. It will be another few weeks before the effect takes place though....

Jacinta D Jacinta D 19 May 2010 23:16:07

Oh poor you, Deborah. Your knees will be tortured! Are all these impatiens going to be in the shade, or will the sun get through the tree ferns?
