.... I need some advise on what to choose
I would love the flowers to be as colorful as possible and to live happily in my garden throughout the spring and summer.
As I am a beginner I would like them to be easy to maintain but beautiful to look at!
My garden gets sunshine throughout most of the day...All advise is greatly appreciated
Ivy leaved geranium, trailing lobelia, those little sempervirens begonias, bedding-type petunias ....
all easily available quite cheaply from the garden centre late May/early June which is a safe time to be planting up and hanging your basket out.
Another plant worth considering are the non-trailing types of nasturtiums.
