Petunia surfina Baskets

Pot them on first for 3 to 4 weeks then put them in the baskets as they will get stronger in each pot better than competing with each other in a basket as a young plug.

Cold weather like most plants so far this year not enough heat and to much cold winds. Hopefully soon much more hotter and less windy weather is on it's way across the country.

Leslie mine is the same just the cold winds up here in Scotland. Because we had that hot spell in April the plant thought it was summer. Then it got really cold once there's some heat in the air things will be fine again am sure.

Hope all goes great for you and weather is good must be a big ask opening up your garden to strangers. I would say it must be a great feeling getting all the good reviews during and after it's all past with after all your hard work ahead of it.

Hi everyone the old couple a few doors down from me asked me the other day while in my garden could i plant up two pots one for each side of there front door. They want long flowering scented perennials which will need little looking after. What would you plant in the two pots which are 30 cm wide 60 cm deep.
