Planning for summer colour
If you want your garden to look its best in summer for outdoor entertaining, mid-spring is the time to get planting. Seedlings are available now to plant for months of colour. Plant them into garden beds or containers.
For bold colours that last until autumn, start planting petunia, calibrachoa, marigold, salvia or zinnia seedlings in sunny spaces or use impatiens or vinca in more shaded areas. All are available either as mixed or single colours allowing gardeners to colour coordinate floral shows.
If you are unsure of what to plant in your area, check out your local hardware or garden centre, which will give you some great plant ideas for your area.
When planting your annuals water them in with Seasol to help reduce transplant shock and aid plant development. Regular applications of Seasol every two weeks will help promote healthy growth and a strong root system.
