What flowers will be in bloom in May I have First Communion and want garden to be as colourful as possible? Thanks
Wedding. Its an in-between time in the garden. Mine is mainly a summer garden hence the pots.
My daughter is getting married at the end April next year and i want to brighten up around the house and patio with pots and containers. what would be the best plants and bulbs to sow in them. i am afraid that daffodils will be gone by then. my garden looked fab this year and i am worried that it will look very bare at that time.
Are the bold-coloured primroses that you see in hanging baskets and borders perennial?
I've recently cleaned out my pots and am thinking of replanting them. i wonder what compost i should use, multipurpose or a mixture?I plan on planting lilies and crinum. bulbs in general i supposealso do you recommend water retaining gel?
I have searched all over for seeds for winterflowering plants, eg. pansies. Nary a one to be found anywhere i looked earlier this year. As you know if one wants to fill beds in a 3/4 acre site with plenty of winter flowers, buying them from a garden center can be a pocket buster, especially if one is on welfare or retired. I have a 30ft. polytunnel and i can grow my own stuff - but I can't find winter seeds to plant in may-june for winter show.. I'll travel to get them next year if i have to or buy them on line.
