If you are yearning for some instant colour to brighten up a dull corner, look to your local Garden Centre because they are jam packed with enticing plants over the next few weeks. Plant with premium potting mix and liquid fertilise fortnightly with PowerFeed (50mL per 9 litres water – standard watering can) to ensure a long flowering season.
Pansy – select hybrid varieties as they produce large strong flowers that are resistant to rain damage.
Viola – produce masses of small flowers and are ideal for large pots and containers.
Primula – are perfect for borders and background filling of garden beds.
Pink and white everlastings – are an easy way to add colour to a road verge or bush garden setting. If left to compost down in the garden bed these plants will self-seed easily next year, resulting in an even bigger colour splash next year.
