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.
