Here we are back in July 2008. After a couple of shopping trips to the local garden centre I had the basics for starting my own little garden.
A quick run through the items:
Window Boxes – plastic, various sizes
Watering Can – plastic two replaceble nozzles, a rose for light watering and a little tube for directing at the roots, etc.
Compost – Organic and peat free – I used way more compost that I thought I would.
Plants – from the top of the pic to the bottom, roughly left to right.
- Viola – mixed colours
- Aster (Victoria) – nice purple flowers which didn’t last.
- Pansy – mixed colours
- Dianthus – pink and red
- Petunia – actually double petunia – pink
- Impatiens – white
- Dahlia – mixed
- Zinnia – Yellow
- Alyssum – white
- Lobelia – white
- Over on the far left is Celosia – yellow and red
There are also some screws and a screwdriver over there for good measure but we can talk about them later.
