BRIGHTEN UP BARE BEDS WITH POT­TED COLOUR

Piako Post - - GARDENING -

Got gaps? Fill them with flow­ers. Most spring vege gar­dens look a bit bar­ren so, while you wait for the soil to warm up suf­fi­ciently for beans, toma­toes, cour­gettes, pump­kins and their space­hog­ging sib­lings, whack in some cheap and cheer­ful pot­ted colour. Most spring flow­ers come in pas­tel shades of lemon, baby blue and pale pink, but I love peren­nial geums (pic­tured above) for their racy and re­li­able shades of or­ange, yel­low and red. Look for them in gar­den cen­tres now.
