OK, now I know I’m over 40. My host and I spend bank-holiday Monday buying flowering plants and planting them out in boxes on her balcony and I really enjoyed it.
There are 4 Geraniums, big Geraniums, a Passion Flower, a Delphinium, a Contoneäster, a Fuchsia, a Scented Pink and 20 Dutch Irises (just the bulbs so far). Indoors we have planted seeds for yellow sweet peppers, oregano, sweet basil and red chillis.
The outdoor stuff looks like this.
