I don't like it that much, been spoiled by the ones in Australia, but it fills a space. So will prune it. Thanks for your response.

Does anyone know why they are so tall, I thought they may be a mutation of some kind.

I bought a packet of Petunia seeds from the pound shop, they are the tallest ones I have ever seen, they are between 16" and 2' tall and are still getting taller, pink, cerise, purple and white and they smell fantastic, can I save some seed and if so when and how. I have filled 3 large boxes, 3 large and 3 small pots for £1.😁😁😁

Meant to say John Innes could work out expensive.

That could work out expensive for 4 planters, would I be ok with top soil, compost and a good feed.

They are 4' long x 2' deep x 18" wide and I want to plant possibly Hebes, Cordelynes and similar, with some trailing summer bedding around the edges.

What do fill new garden boxes with, is it top soil or compost or a mixture of both. Shall I put some fish, blood and bone in when I plant it.

Gravel planting on high water table

Posted: 13/03/2016 at 17:37

HELP  I live in North Wales near the river Dee and my garden is on a high water table, I have struggled for the past four years since moving here to have a decent lawn, last year I got it looking reasonably  decent with a lot of work and lots of new turfed areas, I went to Australia in November for 3 months and returned in February to find that the lawn was a mess again because of all the rain, the new turf was just mud and the rest of the lawn was moss, so I have finally given up and gravelled it. I want to plant into the gravel, Hosta, Astilbis, Cordyline and Hebe's, can I put the Hostas and Astilbis into the gravel and should I put the Cordelines and Hebe's in large plastic pots into the gravel with grit and gravel below them for drainage
