What are your favourite plants from gc bargain section?

Posted: 18/11/2012 at 13:48

I bought some very poor cyclamen from the supermarket for a £1 for six,they were yellow and I thought I would only get one.Put them outside for a few days and they turned green and started flowering.now planted out they are flowering and looking lovely.Also my best bargain was orchids being sold off or ones my daughter discarded.And my Acer which came free with a apple tree.

Talkback: Growing gunnera

Posted: 18/11/2012 at 13:33

I have a Gunnera which I grow in a pot to stop it growing too big,it has to be well watered during one of those dry spells and I use the old big leaves to protect next years new stems/leafs.I first saw this plant in Cornwall in a big garden it was fantastic.I also saw one at ford abbey where they have a wonderful bog garden.(lovely to visit in spring).My Gunnera I grow by my front pond and it has survived so far.
