Plants to grow for summer fetes (2 replies)
I have been asked to do a plant stall for a charity fundraiser in September - can anyone give me some ideas of what to start growing now for it or what I can grow cuttings of? Also trying to think of the time of year for them being bought and put in buyers gardens 🙂 Any advice is welcome!!
What about universal pansies , Violas or polyanthus? They could be planted out and make a show from early spring onwards.
Foxgloves would be able to go in and provide a show from next spring/ summer, rudbeckias make nice colour.
Just a few thoughts for you.
