Replacement Plant



  • Thanks for the suggestions Verdun image I do rather like the purple of the Berberis the most, all the other suggestions look good too.

  • Well I know it's a little different to what I was after, but we all know what were like when it comes to changing our minds in a GC lol 

    I decided to buy a 'Salix - Flamingo' to go in the pot, which will of course be staked and then I can then under-plant with seasonal bedding or some hardy Dianthus plants when they got a bit larger that I ordered a few weeks ago (currently still plug size). Decisions decisions!


    I also bought a 'Pittosporum - Tom Thumb' which I think has lovely foliage, it was going to go in with the Salix but I am now thinking it would be better elsewhere.


     Would you recommend keeping the Salix out of the final pot for now seeing it's been in quite a smaller one and potting it up gradually before placing it in the large pot? Or would it be okay going straight in?

    I'd work it up gradually. I never let things get too greedy as they just take advantageimage

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
  • That's what I was thinking image I might plunge it into the main pot whilst I'm potting it on that way it can still be in it's final position whilst working it's way up ... if that makes any sense lol
