Sizzling Summer Plant Deal

Posted: 07/06/2012 at 16:14

Can some one please tell me if these plants are the type you plant out in the garden and forget and flower every year upon year or do they die off at winter and you have to buy some more?

 included, but it has confirmed each pack will contain fuchsias, petunias and geraniums. Other plants it might contain include begonias, dianthus', becopas, asters, violas and bidens.

 legionnaires carried on water droplets in the compost has always been the case.

This was on the news last year and the year before that etc.

This sounds very well thought out and I can't think of anything else that you should or could do. Hopefully you'll put this Amazonian giant in its new home and stand back...

Gardening was my Ex's domane but i have just got into it and learning even the digging is fun for now!!!

Hi i hope i have done this right for the gunnera manicate.

I have dug a hole twice the size of the pot it is in, the clay at the bottom of the hole i have broken up a little then put a layer of manure in the hole followed by some top soil mixed with more manure.

Then i filled the hole with water.

Next maybe tomorrow i plan on puting compost and the plant in the hole with the top of the plant pot soil being level with the new hole and bedding in and more manure on top plus tons of water.

Would this be okay?

Hi i want to plant out two tree saps about three feet tall and my gunnera manicate but a freind says it is too hot and they will burn ion this heat.

I was thinking of planting them out in the evening when the heat is lower and put tons of water on them and manure in the hole with compost too.

also moving some other shrubs form one part of the garden to another part.

Ideas please Thank you

Does the plant need shelter or can it be a little exposed to the wind?
