Hi guys, I recently came back from holiday to hanging baskets full of dead petunias :(

wondering if anyone can advise what to replace them with to see me out till the end of the summer.

Many thanks

    HOUSELEEKS?

    Best bet is to pop to your local nursery and see what they have.

    We're heading toward autumn now so most of the usual hanging basket inhabitants are no longer available, unless you have some in your garden you could use possibly.

    At least the houseleeks would have survived image

    I WASN'T BEING TOTALLY FACETIOUS.

    IF YOU CAN'T BE AROUND TO WATER HANGING BASKETS EVERY DAY, HOUSELEEKS CAN MAKE GOOD FILLERS.

    AS PETE SAYS, THERE WON'T BE MUCH IN THE SHOPS JUST NOW.
