Dahlias and calceolarias (of the classy kind)‚ petunias and ebony grasses — what more could you want for a showy, jungly pot for all summer and autumn? This pot stood on the steps into our oast garden where we look out, doing the washing-up. Judging it over many months, I couldn’t think how to improve it.This collection contains:
- 2 x 9cm pots of Dahlia 'Mystic Fantasy'
- 3 x 9cm pots of Calceolaria integrifolia 'Kentish Hero'
- 3 x 9cm pots of Setaria italica 'Red Jewel'
- 4 x 9cm pots of Petchoa hybrida 'BeautiCal Cinnamon'
Water and deadhead as often as you can and start a weekly feed after about a month. The plants will need protection from early frosts, so keep somewhere frost-free in the spring.
