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

Tiny white bits on plants.

I think the white bits you are finding are the skins shed by the aphids as they grow

I feel the weight of my baskets - if they are light they need watering but if they feel very heavy they probably don't.

I am so fed up with this weather

My greenhouses are stuffed to the gills and I need to get the plants outside to harden off - frost is forecast
