Next years bedding plants
Hello everyone. This year i worked very hard to get the garden at my new house in shape and am very pleased with the work i've done. I've planted some shrubs, a wee pond, a ton of perennials and hundreds of spring bulbs. Kinda run out of space. Or so i thought. My local homebase shut down last week and i got a load of bargains including 10 of these trio wall troughs and 5 of these wall planter grill things . So of course i am now planning on gardening on the front of my house. Im planning on using upright and trailing geraniums all round my front windows using window boxes and the grill things.
My question is really about the trio planters. I thought i would put them all round the outside of the conservatory and fill them with surfinias. So i'm wondering if 3 plants would overwhelm the planters, should i maybe just have two and something sticky-uppy coming out the middle? I've only grown surfinias in hanging baskets and as far as i recall they were fairly straight up and down. I'm wondering if anyone know how much they bush out and how far i could space my planters apart?
I also looked at petunia wave series and wondered if just one plant in the middle planters would be enough to get good cover across the way, albeit they don't cascade as much as surfinia.
Thoughts and advice welcome. I know it's early but i'm missing my garden now there is so little to do so making my plans for next year is keeping me (somewhat) sane
