Golden all year with pinkish lavender flowers in summer. This one has just had its haircut for the year. It will be even more golden in the winter.

Incase anyone’s wondering, the iron bar with plantpot is my hosepipe guide!

Lovely heather, Karen. Size of this one please.

I was going to ask about the plant pot and iron bar... thought it was the beginnings of a Flower Pot Person...
was tempted to add it to GoYpedia Flower Pot People !

... keep an eye on it ... might grow arms and legs !

We might try some more heathers if we can find varieties that like salt spray!!

Same as the other one Terra. About a foot across.

That’s right Amy, thanks. As you know, I do like colour all year around!

I thought the flower pot was for an earwig trap.

Yes, thats what it looks like, but no, its to stop me poking my eye out!

Good plan, I suppose it could be dual purpose if you stuff it with some straw, lol.

It could, but I’ve never been one for straw traps. They have to be emptied and I always forget! Same with beer traps for slugs...eugh!

I quite agree, Karen, my plants have to cope with whatever comes with just a little help from me.
