My Strawberry Tea went well, 40 people came, several bearing cakes. We actually had too much cake! So we auctioned two of them and made an extra £20. Made about £50 from selling left over plants from my Open Garden day. Tickets for the tea were £9 each. For a cancer charity.
I have realised that I don't actually like cannas. I grew some last year in a pot and they did quite well. I put them in a box of compost in the garage over winter and when I got them out they were all shrivelled up and dried out. Perhaps I should have watered them, but I forgot about them. Bit of a relief because they don't really suit my garden style, which is more romantic and rose filled.
