Which ones, plant pauper?
Getting married early June? What are the containers like? Have you a photo?
How many table decorations do you need. ?
I did all mine for an October 15 wedding, using gladioli in copper jugs. I planted nearly a 100 gladioli in succession to get them flowering at the right time.
Last year I opened my big gob, after a couple of drinks and promised to supply sweet peas for a wedding mid July. Normally at this time I have been inundated, of course last year we had a cold wet Spring and they were only just starting to flower. Only just made it. Phew.
If you are planting up, think of them like small tubs. Bedding plants about to come into flower are around in May, and while I usually despise them for being too early, they will be just the job. If you get a purple sage now, cuttings taken now will be a good size to add foliage next May.
The other alternative could be Lavender plants, small ones grown on now could be tempted into flower early in a conservatory.
