I have finished potting up the marguerites - I need about 50 for the front garden and have potted up about 70 started on the variegated Felicias which I use in my pots and baskets - 28 so far with another tray to go

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

Hanging baskets and window boxes

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

Hello Everyone sorry to hear there are poorly peeps -hope you all feel better soon I hope everything goes well for you OH Dean
I have been feeling a bit sad - my Auntie Vera died a couple of days ago - she was Mum's only surviving sister so the last of that generation
On a lighter note -my Mum was always getting her words mixed up - I think sometimes deliberately- she once asked the girl on the bread counter in Sainsburys for an ORGASMIC loaf

Good Morning Everyone

It is a horrid morning with liitle bits of something falling from the sky  I was hoping to help Barry start up greenhouse no.2 this morning but the weather is against us

Love and hugs to Lottie and Jean

I have done the ironing

Have a good day and be careful anyone who is out and about

Flower of the day

















Flowers in small pots!

Posted: 11/02/2013 at 06:33

Some of the small flowered basket plants would look good - I am assuming each guest would have a pot on their table ? Here are a few plants that could be suitable

Sanvitalia - small yellow daisies

Variegated Felicia - small blue daisies but pretty foliage too

Bacopa - small white or blue flowers

Begonia semperfloruns - red,white pink and readily available as plugs to grow on

Verbena - many colours readily available as plugs

Ageratum - blue dwarf varieties available as plugs 

small flowered Petunias - all sorts of colours available as plugs

There are some small flowered Fuchsias - La Campanella for instance that would be o.k

You could try for a garden of colours and textures on each table - it would look gorgeous

Polly's idea to visit jersey plants etc. is a good one

I hope it goes well for you  I am a bit of a bedding plant maniac so if I can help at all please shout
