Selling plants for charity

I agree with Marion. You can buy little trays of small plug plants at the moment. Pot them on and you can make a healthy profit.  Maybe some geraniums (pelagoniums) or  busy lizzies.  Chilli plants are also good sellers but I struggle with germination. Cosmos are also a good one.

great cause. Hope it's a success for you.

If you scrape the top thin layer of bark, is it fleshly and white/green? If not then those branches may well have died.  Its still a tad early though, and I'd be inclined to see if any buds pop out towards the end of spring.

Definitely. Not sure of the varieties, but mine have done very well in pots.
