Whats the secret to beautiful hanging baskets ?

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 21:56

Don't do hanging baskets now.  Too much work....deadheading, feeding and watering.  Did pretty well though I think but I admire people who can produce those,stunning displays.  Managed a pink busy lizzie ball once from cuttings.  Quite nice ....possibly a Geoff Hamilton suggestion or was it Alan Titchmarsh ?

Getting rid of it

Use cardboard or hardboard pieces to keep cacti safe and away from the gel.  A cloudy dry day is better than a hot sunny one too.  

48 perennial plant offer

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 21:48

There will be those who are satisfied with these offers but many who are not.

Rather than try to fill the garden with such a random mix of lots of perennials....most of which are small to tiny......better to buy a few good size plants amd use annuals as fillers for a couple of years.  Then you can plan your garden properly.  Beg or borrow plants from friends  and neighbours ...plants you like and want.

To us Cornish, Jamaica inn is embarrassing.  Not seen it but reports about sound quality and the awful Cornish accents is off putting.  

Hope the scenery is captured properly though.
