Re-planted trough - at last!


Re-planted trough - at last! (Bellis perennis)

The weather was sunny today so I was able to go out and re-plant the trough - it looks a lot better minus the dead Cyclamen!

It,s very pretty , I started putting these pretty daisy,s ( I can,t think of their proper name at the moment ) dotted about in my gravel drive I,m hoping they will spread this year ........

Oh - sorry - I thought I put their name on. They are Bellis perennis.

I think they are usually grown as biennials, though. Have you tried Erigeron karvinskianus? Have a look at no. 27 of my photos - see what you think, and just maybe...I could send you some seedlings in the spring?

Thanks, Eileen - I should have taken a photo of the flopped-out Cyclamen - they looked AWFUL! So it does look better now! :-)

Great trough planter! Does it have drainage holes?

This is lovely - I planted some Bellis last year which were white - then they changed to pink!

Good job Spritz, you have just reminded me i need to do the same i have dead cyclamen everywhere, and i have 2 trays full of Bellis daisy in my greenhouse that i grew from seed, they are all but bursting out of the trays they are in... must get them into the ground..

Yes, Tasteyg, it does, and it also has 'crocks' in the bottom. This is one of the two I was given by a Freecycler! ( I hope you know about Freecycle!)

I'm afraid I bought a tray, Angie - I didn't grow these. (I am ashamed now).

I have had a look at your Erigeron Karvinskianus Spritz , I did have one, i,m not sure what became of it .. If I don.t mark plants well enough my hubby dosn,t know they are there and they sometimes disappear when he is doing a job :o(

It would be lovely if you did have any seedling to spare , thank you . do they spread nicely once you have them ?

They seed themselves, Amy. However, they are easy to pull out if they grow where you don't want them. The plants do get bigger, too.

Thanks Spritz ... I have been out today and bought two of the Clematis which you have shown photos of and I fell in love with ... the Wisley Cream and Freckles , they are in pots ... would you leave them in the pots untill the weather improves ...
Also another two of the Euonymus " Green Rocket "
You are making me spend all my pocket money ... LOL ...

Oh dear, Amy! I'd better stop showing you nice plants! I'm glad you've found the two cirrhosas. Yes, I would wait a while as the soil is so wet and cold. I really like my 'Green Rocket' plants. I hope you enjoy yours, too.

Thanks for the advice Spritz I will leave them in pots until it is warmer , they are good healthy plants I don,t suppose they will flower this year , I have bought them to go up the new archway that we brought I will probably put roses up as well later , to help support them ........
I really wanted another 4 of the " Green Rocket " but they only had two left I will have to get some more another time !
