Morning everyone. We’re supposed to be getting a lot of much needed rain today so I thought I’d post this summer container as it might look a bit bedraggled tomorrow. Stay dry ☔️ #summer-planter #busy-lizzy #silver-ragwort-silver-dust

Morning Ange, thank you. I’ve never been very keen on Busy Lizzies but I had some last year and was impressed by how pretty they were so I got some more this year 🌸 @anges

I like Busy Lizzies although I haven't used them this year. I've had bedding Begonias which I haven't had before and really like! I think both plants last a while too which is a bonus 😀

Busy Lizzie are great in shade, I used to use them but they developed a disease and weren’t available for a few years and I’ve been wary of trying them since they started selling them again a couple of years ago Will maybe give them a go next year

I'm not a fan of bedding begonias, I like the flowers but the foliage puts me off. It's a good job we don't all like the same flowers isn't it 🤔 @anges

I never liked these very much until last year but they go on for so long and bring a lovely colour pop in a container #colourcombo #busylizzies #impatiens-walleriana 💗🧡🤍

I use them every year in containers at the front steps, they prefer a bit of shade and come in so many colors. They mound up and keep a steady bloom all season but you've got to keep them watered or they droop dramatically

Lovely colours. I used to grow them on the north side of my house when I lived in the city but don’t have the right spot for them out here in the countryside

If I had more shady areas, I'd plant them again. I used to plant them in the front of a north facing flower bed. They added lovely colour.
