What are you planting in your pots and containers?

Posted: 05/06/2015 at 09:38

I don't really do a lot of summer pots but have just planted a few. Lobelia, some trailing stock and some night scented stock for the evening fragrance.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Sounds like you have the biennual ones which will set seed after they flower. I sometimes dead head for extra flowers. Leave the seed pods til they are brown and then resow.

I have the perennial type Bowles Mauve, the leaves are slightly different in shape and colour and it has a distinctive stem of purple flowers. Really lovely plant, can get quite big and shrubby if you trim off the flowers stems. It also flowers all year round and you can easily  take cuttings
