We bought some Lillies from a well-known supermarket to see what would happen and they have flowered beautifully. Sounds awful that! Bought! (Can’t wait ’til the yellow lillies appear too….). It makes me want to grow lillies from seed, as i’ve seen so many amazing varieties, and they are so expensive to buy in the shops.
We planted poached egg flower, foxgloves, candytuft, and marigolds so far this year, but it only the Lily that has given us any colour so far. To be honest, i think next year the flowers will have to go somewhere other than in the beds as they take up a lot of room, and are strangling stuff!
I see the patio being changed into a flower bed at some point….
