2 plants for large pot

Posted: 11/04/2013 at 18:36
Artjak you are in for a summer treat.
If you have trouble getting convolvulous check out perhill nurseries. Cheap, reliable and good
If your pot is fairly big and your agapanthus not likely to fill it this season why not add a couple of linum perenne Blue Sapphyr between convolvulous and agapanthus.
A beautiful, swaying sky blue on 30 cm glaucous foliage. I love this plant.
Perhill nurseries sell this too
............not pushing perhill by the way. I get a lot of small gems like this from them that's all.
Good luck artjak

They're weeds down here for me too.
Think i would pot them up....they are likely to be very small....keep them warm and watered until strong green shoots emerge. Use compost.
My favourite is lucifer.....brilliant how-stopping colour

Just want a realistic looking dummy in the garden...

For me, agapanthus and convolvulous mauritamica.
Perfect together liking same conditions
If you haven't grown this hardy perennial convolvulous then check it out. Velvety blue cascading flowers all summer

Hello happymarion,
I realised libertias were inherently,invasive but before purchase, did some,checking on goldfinger, and the Taupo series to see if they would be better behaved. I've had them for couple to three years, splitting one, and so far they are tidy and compact with no sign of running. I remove flowers anyway as I think they spoil the leaves.
I bow to,your knowledge and welcome your your opinion how invasive would these "new" hybrids be?
I am pretty ruthless with invasive or potentially-invasive plants so I look forward your reply. They are such splendid, unique lookers in the garden though!

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

Red dahlia, I know you know but skimmias for the shade and hebes in the sun. Pushy me, but that lovely black soil conditioner for the skimmias. Hebes happy in poor stuff
Fairygirl, don't we all get compost in our toasters?

I have a feeling if someone says it's impossible then you'll do it Brum

It's impossible. Ha ha
