I live in an independent rented bungalow. I dapple in gardening to achieve peace of mind. This is an update so far so that I can make fresh updates .
Winter of 2009
I just went and got some seedlings from the nurseries and here are some of the flowers I had at least for the brief winter period brightening up my small garden patch
The petunias, vincas and dianthus flowered through to summer and lasted really really long. I love the coloured vincas. One thing I have found about Vincas is that moist soggy soil is no no . They thrive in poorer soil with ample sunlight and adds such colour to the garden. But buying annual plants is a costly affair and I would much rather prefer to spend the money on seeds.
