Wallflowers

September 29th, 2014

Jasper our resident garden expert at Averys Garden Centre recommends that you plant your wallflowers now. At Averys we sell them lose in bundles of 10/12. The most popular varieties are Persian carpet mixed ( beloved by parks departments ) or the smaller dwarf bedder mix.

Plant then approx 12 inches apart and firm them in  ,to stop them rocking in the soil until established .Water in well  after planting. Before planting its a good idea to spread a general fertilizer over the soil (Growmore) so as to ensure the wallflowers get the best possible start.

To get that parks department interest and colour in the spring, why not plant tulips between the wallflowers and possibly make an edge to the bed using winter pansies.

By way of interest, when I worked on the  Taunton Parks ,to get their full bonus, the lads had to plant at lest  10 plants per minute .Now that it is going some. How many do  you think you could

I can dig them up but couldn't plant them
