Summer bedding ideas? Just pulled out all my foxgloves and would like to put something colourful in until the first frost. It must tolerate dappled shade and it can be a tad windy that spot. Any ideas? (Will be taking ornamental cherry tree out after 4 years as I get black fly every year and the annual infestation has contorted the shape of the tree).




Busy lizzies. The ones now do not have the problems of a few years back.

What about some fuschias?

Cuphea ignea, and its hybrids? Wishbone Flower (Torenia fournieri)?

Thanks for the ideas but realised I had some perennial plants that need a temporary home so will be using it until I dig out cherry tree in autumn.
