Back during February and March I bought three small primulas – one each pink, white and yellow – from the charity stall at the horticultural society trading shed which I put on the windowsill at home where they provided some welcome colour. Once they had finished flowering I replanted them in the long planter where they’ve done really well.
I’d tried growing various plants in this container over the years but I’ve never been very happy with the results, and for much of each year it remained empty.
These plants were initially nibbled by slugs/snails then the leaves got frazzled in the summer but over the past two months they’ve grown and been flowering almost continuously.
Last Friday there was a hard frost which sadly finished off the summer annuals that I’ve been mentioning and showing over recent weeks. After collecting any seed I want the plants will be pulled up and composted. I’ll be doing that during the week which looks like being mostly dry and mild.
Have a good week!
