Best of the bunch

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

●● Ba­copa

This ef­fec­tive trail­ing peren­nial, of­ten grown as an an­nual in this coun­try, com­bines well with al­most any colour scheme, its tiny white flow­ers draped over win­dow boxes or spilling out of con­tain­ers and cas­cad­ing over hang­ing bas­kets. You can also grow mauve va­ri­eties and it spreads quite ef­fec­tively in con­tain­ers so is great as a fill-in.

It will do well in sun or light shade in multi-pur­pose com­post, but keep it well wa­tered through­out the sum­mer months, trim and feed it oc­ca­sion­ally to keep it go­ing. Good va­ri­eties in­clude B. ‘Snowflake’ and B. ‘Snow­topia’.
