Arctotis 'Apricot'


Arctotis 'Apricot' (Arctotis)

The plant has a number of buds still. There's no telling if they'll open, of course.

Thanks - pretty, isn't it! I'm not expecting it to survive a severe winter. :-(((

Let's hope we get a mild one then B. :))

Maybe you could use Hywels technique of mulching and covering with an upturned pot to try and save them over the winter. It is a stunning colour.

I do that - the very deep mulch helped my Vitex-agnus to survive, with fleece wrapped round. Too tall for a pot, though! I do it for other plants.

Barbara - I'm planning to surround my Loropetalum with straw, then cap with an upturned hanging basket . . . do you think that would be enough protection??

(Apologies for the sideways move . . . )

Have you got any hessian or sacking - or failing that, fleece? You'll need to wrap something round the straw- or else imagine the scene when the winds get up!

I've got a brick to put on top of the basket, lol!

Now that sounds a right good idea Sheilabub! Might well try that.
Love this Spritz, off to google it as Ive never seen it before.

Thanks Tet! It's only going to work for low-growing stuff though, unless you've got a deep hanging basket? Those triangular ones could be good, come to think . . .
