In the warm May sunshine, we planted begonias this afternoon. These last all summer and need very little attention. They give lots of colour.
There are a few more to do tomorrow.
Last year my wife bought busy lizzies by mistake. They also looked good.
Yesterday (first day of summer - cold 12 deg C and drizzle!) I
planted 46 begonias in our front garden. We have more for the back
garden. Once planted, these need very little attention and they provide
colour until the frosts in late autumn. I just dig a small hole for
each, throw in some compost and plant each flower. Usually they are very
easy plants for the summer and autumn. At the end of this I was very exhausted - still an after-effect of my stroke. In the past this would have been easy.
We usually put in winter flowering primroses for the winter.
The back garden begonias will probably go in later today. It is still cold and windy here!
