Bloomin’ marvellous

My Petunia Sophistica Lime Bicolour is just coming into flower and is really something to be pleased about. The deep pink is complemented by the lime in a very pretty way and a real asset to my garden.

I am also exceedingly pleased with the Easi Plant hanging basket that I got from Gardening Direct. The trailing petunia’s are doing well as are the Lobelia’s and impatiens. Due to the way the hanging basket has been designed means that the trailing plants have had a head start and it is nearly impossible to see the hanging basket under all the flowers even when most of them have not started flowering yet.

The first flowers have come out on the tomato plants so I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be enjoying homegrown tomatoes very soon. The potatoes are flowering too and I am sure I read somewhere that these flowers must be nipped off so as not to take anything away from the growing potatoes themselves, so that is what I am doing. I am hoping that the Pentland Javelin will soon be ready for harvesting.
