What can I plant in wall troughs at this time of year for some colour?
North East England, United Kingdom
I've been very disappointed with my petunias this year. They were given to me as very young plants by a friend and I nurtured them in my greenhouse until it was time to plant up my troughs. They all looked superb, healthy plants, but the double flowers have been very few and far between, and all in dark colours, I haven't enjoyed them at all. So even though they're not really finished yet, I'm going to remove them over the next few days. Trouble is I don't know what to replace them with - in only the middle of August I don't want to be looking at bare troughs! Does anyone have any ideas of what I could plant? I'd like something trailing if possible - I was wondering about fuschias?
