Just wondering if you could recommend some flowers that would be suited to potting. I am looking to fill three troughs roughly 150cm in length and am loking to display in partial shade. As much colour as possible is the aim as this is a rather glum area at the minute.
Where can I buy trailing "Happy face Mex", "cascading red" and "balcony" geramiuns, they are available in UK as plug plants but they do not deliver to southern Ireland.
I want to plant some colourful flowers in my patiio that will flower most of the summer whick would be the best type that are full and hardy with lots of bloom, patio shade in morning and full sun by 2pm on one half and other half mostly shade.
my house is north facing what is the best plant for hanging baskets & window boxes.
I had a lovely colour verbina last year and i want to keep it how do i do it? How do i over winter verbina? Can it be propergated from the seeds? Or do i try mind the plant inside?
I like to start a small business selling windowboxes, containers(unusual or art type) and hanging baskets using recycled material, my question is who can i go to to find someone who can make these, or where can i find the material to make them myself.
My geraniums have contracted rust (brown spots on underside of leaves).I have taken off all the affected leaves. Can I overwinter these plants under glass or should I destroy them?
The bacopa in my baskets has become quite compacted and has stopped flowering, should it be repotted or cut back? I don't remember it stopping flowering as early as this in years before.
What can I do about leaves of petunias in container going yellow?
Hanging baskets with trailing petunia, and lobelia were planted in late May (after frosts) and were thriving initially. In last few weeks leaves have gone pale green and flowers have a faded 'washed out' look, but are not falling off. Baskets have been kept watered and fed with tomato feed (maybe too much?) from the start. I have been growing baskets successfully for several years and never saw this problem before.
what flowers will colour now in pots?
I was rehoused due to disability, my place has a short avenue and i decided to put down bedding plants, some now dying off, tis rather a mess! all suggestions for plants now that will spread slightly and give a show for the remainder of the summer gratefully received.
I'm looking for some advice. We have a small family run hotel in Skerries. We are right in the harbour and can get very windy. We would love to have some window boxes or hanging basket but are worried whether they would last or not.We grow our own fruit -plums, apples and damsuns. We have made delicious rum pot and damsun wine in the past. We are keen to make cider and would like to purchase an apple press. However, we do not know where one can buy these in ireland or are there course available on winemaking. Any information provided would be gratefully recieved. Thanks a million Mary FloodAny advice would be gratfully appreciated
At what stage do I begin to feed seedlings - hardy and half-hardy annuals? i.e. Calendula and Petunia Is it when the first true leaves appear? How do I know that they are "true" leaves?
