We get a lot of late frosts where I live, so I don't put my bedding plants into the tubs and troughs until the end of May. Last Saturday we went early to the garden centre, before the Bank Holiday crowds arrived, and bought compost and a pile of plants. We also got a large ceramic planter for Brian to repot 'his plant', more of that later.
We got three bags of compost, but Brian had to go back later for another three and we used the lot!!!
Some of the trays of plants
Here are some of the stone troughs planted up with bizzie lizzies & petunias
Bizzie Lizzies (Impatiens)
More Bizzie Lizzies
Over on the patio, there are more pots and wooden barrel type containers
and a couple of old stone containers which started life as water containers
and this is Brian's 'Pinus Mugo' in it's new container.
