The flowers are intended as one pot per table setting. The idea is that people could take them away as a 'wedding favour'. As far as I can see the colour scheme is 'bright'. The celebration is being held in a barn which is quite dark, I think lots of little points of colour on the white tablecloths will look OK (?)
I have a small greenhouse, and very large polytunnel. I thonk I'll probably have to grow them outdoors. In the poly I think they'll get drawn and lanky, although I could germinate in there.
The pots are very small. only 3 inch. I think that dahlias, geraniums and fuscias might be too big. Do you think eschalonia would be OK? and how about californian poppy, -will that travel do you think? How about dwarf phlox? how dwarf do they get? I'm not sure about marigolds, I don't like the smell, and if it's actually on the table beside you it might be overpowering.
I like the idea of gerberas, but can I get small varieties, and will I have time to sow them, or should I but plugs?
The important thing I think is COLOUR.
