Wondering what annuals I can plant in small(ish) terracotta pots for summer colour, ones that are good for bees too?
here you go.. try this link
or this one
Cosmos, marigolds, nastursums. Go for open flowers not doubles or pom poms to attract bes.
Thanks guys for all your help! Must get some seeds a.s.a.p.
How do I sow them though? As I shall probably buy them online and they usually come without instructions?
Hi Verdun, I've decided on cosmos, marigolds and a wildflower mixed packet. Oh, wasn't aware Lidl's sold them and thought poundland's seed couldn't be any good because of their price, are they good quality still then? Adnd yes, I have an unheated 6x6 glass greenhouse, 2x 4 tier unheated growhouses and an unheated coldframe and a conservatory taken over by plants
Ryan, I've bought lots of seeds from £ land over the years. Nought wrong with them. Best bargain ever was a couple of years ago - a packet of nasturstiums with 6 different varieties in them.
The only problem being I've got them forever now No matter how many seed pods I collect. I get more and more each year. Good job I like them.
Aldi's good for seeds as well - got some Nigella for 89p
Thanks Guys, I went to my local GC (just got back) and I took you advice Verdun and bought:
1 x Red Phormium 'Cherry Sensation', 1 x Convolvulus Cneorum, 3 x Red Geraniums (didn't have Pelargoniums) and single marigold seeds.
I will buy some Concolvulus Mauritanicus seeds online, as they didn't have a plant in the shop.
I'm also going to poundland tomorrow, so I'm expecting to buy a lot of cheap seeds and bareroot plants
