Green pot planting.

The flowers on the new plants are opening now, with the milder weather.

So do i, gorgeous...:>)

Thanks......:-))

You have such a lovely way of potting up your plants, Spritz. I do like the pansies and cyclamen together and it's a combination I would never have thought of....another good idea from you. :)

Will the cyclamen survive over the winter? I am a bit confused about their hardiness.

31 Oct, 2010

 

Sadly, no. It's wet plus cold that they don't like. I usually have to replace them by polyanthus (or similar) before Christmas. I'm glad you like the present planting, though. Thank you! :-)

Looks lovely Spritz. I've tried planting the cyclamen in the garden but they don't survive.

Lovely arrangement Barbara, you have got the colour combination perfectly.

2 Nov, 2010

 

Thank you both.

No, Linda - I'm sure they wouldn't, it would have to be the hardy ones.

really lovely. who needs more than a pot of flowers to brighten up the day?

2 Nov, 2010

 

That's true - I've 'acquired' a smaller blue one, and I must take its photo too. :-)))

2 Nov, 2010

 

yes please ~ anything blue is good

2 Nov, 2010

 

now that looks outstanding Spritz.

2 Nov, 2010

 

Thanks very much... Did you see my new pot?

2 Nov, 2010

 

i have now ~ its lovely and an inspired choice of plants in it

2 Nov, 2010

 

It's a bit smaller, but I wouldn't want them all the same size anyway, then I can group them in different ways.

2 Nov, 2010

 

yes i have 3 that are different sizes, i put them together ~ they are blue like your new one, i had a tiny bush that was covered in delicate pink blossom in the spring ~ very pretty.

2 Nov, 2010

 

Oooh! What was that?

2 Nov, 2010

 

um, not sure, sorry, will look in the morning ~ i may have a photo ~ i will put it on my pictures

2 Nov, 2010

 

It's all too easy to forget a name, isn't it! I got asked the name of a common plant at my open garden in June - and its name went out of my head! Luckily, I had a group of GOYers standing quite close, and Grindle came to my rescue. I felt sooooooooo silly. :-(((((

3 Nov, 2010

 

found it!!! couldnt find the photos but will keep looking but probably more important i did find the label:
prunus incisa (kojo-no-mai) it had pale pink flowers and was very sweet, flowers lasted a couple of weeks or more i think.

3 Nov, 2010

 

Ah yes - I saw that at a local GC and was v.v.v.v. tempted.
If i hadn't set my heart on a Kalmia for my Christmas present pot, it would have come home with me.

Where is it now? In the garden?

3 Nov, 2010

 

yes, still in its pot but now with no leaves on! they came off in the last week ~ they turned orange but not the glorious colour of a beech or acer. they say it likes sun ~ which is why i put it in a pot to give it maximum chance of sun!

maybe you could have it for spring pot?

3 Nov, 2010

 

I did see the pot Spritz, its lovely

3 Nov, 2010

 

Thanks, Yorkshire. Yes, why not, Sticki? Is there room for some little plants round its 'trunk'?

3 Nov, 2010

 

yes spritz it has a tiny trunk so there is plenty of room ~ depending on the pot size of course!!!! mine is only about 12-15" tall so plants would be better if they were trailing

3 Nov, 2010

 

How about 'Creeping Jenny' -(Lysimachia nummularia, I think). That would look good. Lamium would trail, as well.

3 Nov, 2010

 

yellow creeping jenny? i dont know lamium. the flowers are a really pale pink. yellow would certainly brighten it up!

3 Nov, 2010

 

There are several Lamiums around - there's one with variegated leaves which has dark pink flowers later on...that would look good. It's a dead-nettle, only a cultivated one.

3 Nov, 2010

 

very pretty leaves then ~ i like attractive leaves

4 Nov, 2010

 

I'm eavesdropping folks, I have that Prunus Stickitoffee, In a lovely ornate urn & I usually underplant on the outside of the little trunk with early crocus or min.tulips & for the winter a few pansys or violas. When the prunus is in flower which is fairly early I like it to be on it's own.

4 Nov, 2010

 

yes i agree ~ it probably best on its own ~ the bulbs sound lovely ~ your pot sounds a real centre piece ~ good value

4 Nov, 2010

 

Ooooh...I bet when I see it again next spring I'll be tempted all over again. Maybe if you post a photo, I can just gaze at that. :-))

5 Nov, 2010

 

Love the cyclamen :o)

5 Nov, 2010

 

Thanks, Pip - so do I. :-)))
