Bargain of the century!!!

I would be pulling straight over to snaffle that. Some people just see things as waste yet I would love a matching pair.

 

gardenjeannie I have looked at the tree dahlia and boy they are big, think maybe not!!

Well the one I collected has drainage holes in so I thought I would add it to the garden collection. My boyfriend fancies a tree dahlia - I have never seen one!!

Oh my sorry I thought most people would know. It's a tin barrel type tub that people would wash in 'in the old days' with a wooden ponch type thingy. I sound like I know what I'm talking about but at 32 I have only ever really seen pictures. They are selling on eBay for about 30-80 pounds. I will try and attach a picture but google dolly tub and you will see how lovely they are.

 

a real bargain to get one for free!!!

I have been looking at dolly tubs for months. Imagine my excitement when one popped up on a 'free' page on Facebook.

 

i pleaded for it and managed to get it. Off I trooped to collect and now I'm throwing it open to us all..... what shall I put on it next year. Veg, plants, shrubs, tree?

 

so let's hear those ideas and I will hopefully post pics next year when 'project dolly' is underway.

 

thanks

I just worry that I won't fit them in my greenhouse if I pot them on again. I have cuttings galore filling 9cm pots all in a bread tray, I hope that they keep over winter. I have lythrum, coreopsis, fuschia, scabiosa, gayser gaura, climbing fuschia, bush fuschia, pelargonium. phostegia or something like that name. Green wizard rudbeckia are all in 4 cm modules, pansies furiously growing on for planting (I don't know when)

 

liatris is baby seedlings just getting true leaves!

I have 40 lupins in the greenhouse ready to overwinter but I found this flowered early in the season then looked over! 

 

My pink echinachia was fab, I hope it drops seed and I get babies!

Verdun - mission unsucessful!! His seed heads are not ready so wasn't the right time. Although he has a penstemon like the pictured one above so thinking cutting or seed!!!

i have verbena and looking others up. Unfortubately the local garden centres seem to sttock the everyday stuff and annuals but not much else!!

 

looking fior a nice helenium! Not one that looks like it's gone over, I like pert flowers and petals
