Balloon Flowers

I don't look after these at all...usually I forget them until the summer when I spot them popping up in their pots. Then I water them & off they go!

I would plant them out but I don't trust my clay soil to look after them & they seem quite happy in the pots. They've doubled the amount of buds this year so they must be content.

Hi Fluff you show off, ha ha! They're gorgeous, hope mine look like this when they all flower. Love the white ones, I'm definitely going to try to get more of these lovely plants.

They're actually a very pale pink...it doesn't show the colour very well. I must check out if there are other colours.

These are very pretty, Fluff. They do appear to be very contented where they are in the pot.

We have the white ones - good as gold every year.

I nearly bought some more this week...they are £1.49 in M'sons!
