Summer Planting Plan

I am sorely tempted to get planting this weekend, I am sure the frost risk is over(?). I have a lot of annual bedding to plant up and I am running out of space to store it. I may leave it one more week at the most, to air on the side of caution………or I may cave and plant some of it out this weekend.

I did a tally up of what I have got in the greenhouse that is ready to go. Its a long list –

40 trailing Lobelia

40 Stock

40 Begonia

30 Petunia

30 Impatiens

lots of Asters bundled into 20 pots

6 Mirabilis

12 Ballerina Pansies

17 Snap Dragons

60 marigolds

30 Gazanias

and a mixture of some Geraniums and bushy Lobelias and 2 or 3 perennial plants to pot up.

So here is a rough sketchy plan for all the pots, baskets and planters I have, and a rough layout of what plants I will put in each. This was mainly to make sure I have enough variety in each planter to ensure I don’t get over excited and over plant a pot and leave nothing for others!


I shall also try to catch you up with what veg and salad I am growing, I have currently got cucumbers, sweet peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, radish and carrots on the go. Photos to come 🙂
