May In Your Garden

Posted: 16/05/2012 at 09:08

I haven't had time to catch up with all the posts yet - too busy trying to catch up with all the jobs I need to do - this weather has put me so far behind

I am going to make up my two large baskets for the front garden today - usually they are done at the beginning of May

Have a good day everyone

Fuchsia problem

It doesn't sound good  Did you repot them into bigger pots? One thing I would do is take some healthy tops off the fuchsias and pop them into some compost to root in case your plants don't survive .Try easing off on the watering and put them somewhere bright and warm with space around them- only water again when the pots feel lighter.I do hope they pull back for you - they are both lovely Fuchsias - I think it is Celia Smedley ?

Fuchsia Thalia

Thalia fuchsias are lovely - it will be fine in the garden or a pot during the Summer but will need taking inside over Winter.Cuttings root easily  so you could take some as a backup for next year - hope this helps

They will grow 2' - 3' - I just leave my Chillies to do their own thing

Hello Lindsay - if you decide on the Petunias start planning early - are you intending to grow the plants yourself  or buy ready made ones?

I hope you have a lovely day and that everything goes well for you

June 1st is still quite early in the year but I would say that Surfinia Petunias would be good for baskets and pots.They are available in Purple and Bright Pink and would make an impact .Calibroacha comes in different colours including Orange.Turquoise may be a problem You could paint some pots Turquoise and fill them with plants of the other colours
