Trio Planter (3rd and hopefully final position)

The wind seesm to catch it too much, so hopefully the sheletered part should O.K. I am fed up with picking it up and dealing with the compost and pnats strewn across the path and road.

beautiful arrangement. How long does it bloom?

11 Feb, 2012


The primroses and the aster lasted a very long while.

The primroses will last well in to Autumn and then bloom again in Spring. Some primroses I had last year flowered all through winter too.

The aster lasted throughout the Autumn until it got cold.

The cyclamen were bought a bit late in the season and wold have survived longer in the house, but they lasted a few weeks. They are Summer ones.
