The begonias are grown from plugs and the wall basket is just planted in the top

Obelixx - my favourite basket plants are

Variegated Felicia

Chilli plants

It sounds like an aphid attack to me .I would give the plants a gentle shower with tepid water and keep an eye on them - I wouldn't spray with a chemical insecticide if you are using the chillies but a bit of washing up liquid diluted with water wouldn't hurt

Morning Dove  Yes they are mine - I took the photo a few days ago  I wish the primroses would start to flower  as well- they are full of buds

That is annoying about the car Lottie I hope your brother is o.k

I have enjoyed myself this morning - sitting in my greenhouse with the radio on potting up plants - so far 16 pink marguerites and 50 white ones

Just come in for some lunch - cheese on toast I think

Hello Obelixx  I was really pleased with some of my baskets last summer - the Begonias are Illumination Apricot Shades from Thompson and Morgan.

Have you tried Calibroacha? The one in my basket is called Aloha Tiki Soft Pink but it is available in a good range of colours.

Have you tried Sanvitalia? these have a mass of small yellow daisies all summer long
