Had one more wooden planter so decided to give the #rhododendron a try. Love the blooms and they seem to holding up alright. #urbangarden

That’s gorgeous, I am loving the one colour scheme, don’t forget to plant some white bulbs for spring 👌

Interesting @suerichards 2 questions: 1) Plant them now so they are ready for spring? And 2) I assume you mean in another planter and not in the same one? #sillyquestion

I wouldn’t plant them till October to November but I start ordering them about Sept. Sarah Raven does a good collection of small Narcissi Thalia with Tulip White Parrot. Plant them between the Azalea. The Tulips can be planted deeper and the Narcissi on top. Then you get flowers for longer. It’s amazing what you can cram in one pot, I also use slow release feed (I get mine from Tesco’s) When you plant your bulbs add snail pellets as they even seem to climb walls 👍👏😍

Idea lol do the same with your lavender pots. You could add Alliums and Tulips. Oh how I love spending other peoples money. If you need any plants that I can spilt let me know I can post them to you 😊

Hahah thanks for the advice regarding the pots. I would never have thought to mix these planters for fear of the plants getting cramped. Can’t keep you around long - you will surely spend all my money. lol. I suppose I want to make sure everything survives before I add more and throw more of it to the wind. 😂 @suerichards
