Him indoors took over a Country Pub/Restaurant in November 2010 and as this will be our first summer I want to put a spectacular display of baskets (9) and planters (4) (said hubby still has his power tools and must say I’m very impressed with the planters he’s made!!) around to wow our customers. Has anyone got any ideas on what plants (something a little different to the norm but still colourful) I can plant to really impress said customers, most of whom are experienced gardeners? I know you are probably thinking why don’t you ask one of them but lovely as they all are they will ALL get involved and Fred will tell me one thing and Cyril will just say “no you don’t want to do that, do this” and then Betty up the road will tell me another thing and Sarah wants me to buy her very expensive bedding plants and then they will all take the credit for it and tell everyone it was their idea and little old inexperienced me will just get left behind feeling very deflated!!! At least this way you are all unbiased (hopefully!!!!) as to what would be a great display and the best place/s to purchase from.
Anyway I’m off to buy my compost I think I know which one to buy and I don’t need a lot cus one of them lovely customers dropped me a ton of muck round yesterday!!!
Hope you can help and I’ll put some pics on of his indoors planters before and after!!
