Coco doing some bird watching... has her eye on a particularly delicious looking one apparently as her teeth were chattering like crazy 😂

Last years senetti to the left side, only one survived the winter (I brought them into the utility when temperatures dropped) and two new ones on the right. They were going ‘out of date’ at work. We put these flowers upstairs for staff to make a charity donation and take home so I got more senetti! My favourite and the bees love them 🐝

Senettis have both had brutal haircuts and I was surprised by how much new growth there was underneath one. Hopefully the other one will have another flush of lovely flowers for the bees

I always cut them hard back once they start to look leggy and they cut back as well as the first flush of flowers 😊

Made some little no frost markers because come winter time I won’t remember which plant is which 🤔 and I’d really like to keep these pretty ones going 💜

Good idea, my Senetti was doing great until the snow killed it off🙁

That’s a shame @clare2611 I guess it’s best to keep them in pots when we have the weather we do!
