The lilies we had over christmas were glorious. They were in bud and opened very well and at $6, a bargain.
Over the years I must have planted hundreds of petunias in our various gardens, always with success. However, I had never tried growing them from seedlings here until recently. I bought a punnet and a bag of good quality potting mix and potted them up.
So, we went out and bought a pot of already grown ones, which we should have done in the first place. The balcony is a harsh environment, boiling hot sun until lunch time and often strong and cold southerly winds, but these already well established petunias just love it.
