bedding plants

Posted: 28/04/2012 at 09:08
Hi. I'm a novice gardener as well and would be interested in your replies. I have to plant up a memorial garden at the school this Friday. I created it a few years ago in memory of pupils at our secondary school that have tragically lost their lives whilst being part of the school. I like to plant a Rose with a small headstone in their honour and this Friday ,a parent is coming to do this in memory of her daughter. Sadly, this will make the 5th Rose in honour of a child so I must be able to make the space bright and cheery. Red, White and blue I thought would be an ideal theme this year.....but are petunias likely to die if they go out in 5 days? Can anyone suggest any hardier bedding please? Any advice would be gratefully received

I agree. Good to see Rachael back, and a damp soggy Nigel, but not as useful for your general gardener. I would love it if they added a brief 7 day weather forecast or mentioned likelihood of frosts.

Peony tree - help!

Any advice on peony trees? I bought one mail order this time last year which, as price was reduced, I assume it was after it's season. I planted it as suggested and the two small leaves grew slightly. These dropped off in autumn. This spring - nothing! Leaves number 4 and bigger than last year but no actual growth. What am I doing wrong. Full price this plant was ??34! Have I wasted my money(. Any advice greatly received

I agree with you Koalagirl - Nigel is a star! Clearly loves gardening and Monty. His tail never stops wagging!
