Cottage Pinks

Bonsai-MarcBonsai-Marc Posts: 444

I have got 10 cottage pinks free and not sure really where im going to put them. several different types.  sat in my garage at window over spring and are now kicking out some good growth, a couple almost 30cm high already, not bushy.

my garden is not really cottage type and i dont think they would go well on my Japanese mountain scene rockery.

I could line them up at the end of grass area in a flower bed to add some colour as its only green that end, plus want to add 2 large white geraniums as i did last year


any suggestions and tips on these, how big and area/space needed etc

    hhmm ok not in a line.

    my acers are babies and in pots, bonsai styling maybe, not really good for pinks to join up. or id prefer not

    they ok in the pots at moment, shouldnt be reaching its limits just yet.


    i dont think will fit in the rockery that well as only spaces left need to be ground cover so as not to block the view behind

    maybe just in a flower bed all together to create a multicoloured mound
