Hard to beat lupins for spikes of glorious colour

Rosa yes grown peas in guttering. However they tend to break up when I plant them out.
I now sow in trays and pot on. Plant outside under fleece....helps against mice although the pea seed has just about gone then ......and I have 100% success.
Jo4eyes, what colour are your new hellebores? Ashwood can be fantastic. Don't forget plenty of mulch and makes huge difference
