Wow Flowerchild  The wealth of knowledge on this site NEVER ceases to amaze me .  I suppose its a case of a hundred gardening heads being better than one.

That sounds great Artjak and Rosie - i always grow surplus, and happy for it to find a good home.  M4 in berks is easy for me

Can containers have spring and summer flowers in them?

Posted: 19/02/2014 at 20:04

I do the same as Artjak - bulbs in spring and annuals like petunia and lobellia in summer.  The annuals have plenty of room to sit above the bulbs - not sure how much room there would be for lilies and gladioli (ie a second lot of bulbs) side by side with the spring bulbs - maybe consider non bulb plants for summer instead?  Or bulbs for summer and non bulbs like primroses or pansies for spring?

Morning Dove and Archie - i'm afraid it is not my body clock but my rather loud alarm clock that makes me join you here.

great day yesterday, but back to work today.  And i am a garden diary keeper, and also keep a notebook of what is where (coz i can never find that sort of thing in a diary, it has to be in a list !)
