Monday 17th February 2014

This moring I wanted to pick up some John Innes no 3 compost and horticultural grit from the local garden centre but ended up buying a variety of trailing plug plants and a bird feeder instead.

Recently we have been thinking about creating a Hanging Pot Tree with a view to being able to hang 24 of our small Liliane hanging pots (only 15 cm diameter). We want a robust and stable Tree that can be transported in the back of a car, so it is likely to be constructed in a modular form that can be easily assembled and disassembled without the need for tools. A number of drawings have been put down on paper and we are close to a final design, we hope a prototype will be completed soon - watch this space.

This afternoon we have been potting up the young plug plants that include the following.

    Liliane hanging pot
  • Bacopa Great Pink Beauty
  • Bacopa Snowflake
  • Bidens Golden Glory
  • Calibrachoa Cabaret Cherry Rose
  • Calibrachoa Cabaret Purple Glow
  • Calibrachoa Cabaret Red
  • Calibrachoa Cabaret Yellow
  • Calibrachoa Hot Pink Star
  • Petunia Cascadia Rim Magenta
  • Petunia Phantom
  • Petunia Prinstripe
  • Petunia Double Tumbelina Cherry Ripple
  • Petunia Double Tumbelina Angela
  • Petunia Surfinia Burgundy
  • Scaelova Blue Print
