I bought 2 flower towers last year. Each with 48 holes in. At £1 a go for million bells I thought this year £48 for one display was too much!! I usually grow lots of perennials from seed and grow cosmos, poppies, wildflower and tobacco plants and others but haven't grown hanging basket plants. Can anyone recommend any for next year. And when is it best to start them so I can be guaranteed them in flower in summer. Thanks and sorry for long question.



Hi I have tried one of these this year with 20 holes and I wish I had saved my money and used my traditional basket, I dont know to be fair if it is the actual tower or the begonia plug plants which I planted in it, but my begonias have struggled since day one, so I definitely would not recommend Begonias. I am sure other people will give you great advice on the best ones, good luck.
