Well, I was looking for something to go with the deep red/black canna and the yellow bidens in a tub for the front porch. I had bought some rusty orange gazanias, but they're not looking too good, having been bashed abot in the wind, and anyway I wasn't sure about the colour.
Wyevale (just behind our office) had some collections of plants, ostensibly for a hanging basket - but it had some plants just the right colours, oranges and scarlets. There are also some little variegated trailing thingies, a fuchsia and some other usual hanging basket-type thingies that aren't usually the sort of thing I'm interested in - but 8 plants in all for £9.95, then reduced by 50% - think I can do something with them, don't you
