My garden pots..


Hi all, i thought i would show you how my garden tubs & pots are doing at the moment..


pumpkin & courgette.

large daisies, sorry but dont know the name of them & pink diascia.

daisies with violas & bidens jumbo gold..

tagetes , cosmos & swan river daisy

begonia devotion & nemisia..white improved.

pansy,geranium & swan river daisy.


breathless euphorbia white with asters.

cosmos blue bicolour,brachyscome metalic blue,

cosmos sonata mixed.tagetes & geranium.

not sure about the name of this one..i know it as ice plant,with salvia hot lips & chinese lanterns.

Molly with her

mixed dahlias,lillies & a sunflower i did not plant..

my little ducks with lobelia..

this little border is like a jungle, from a box of mixed flower seeds i just threw in & has my grapevine in the middle of it, hubby says to chop it all back.. but i cant.. maybe in a few weeks,

or maybe
dianthus chinensis aristo & 4 coreopsis just coming through now..soca, jive, cha cha cha & limbo sounds like some rhythm in that tub

finally.. baskets with some pearl..

these pics were taken last week everything has almost doubled in size now…:o)
