GREEN UP YOUR GAFF

GET HARDY (SOW HARDY ANNUALS NOW)

1st March 2019

Words by Jessica Peace

You can sow your ‘hardy annual’ (can stand the cold/ will flower this year) seeds in pots outside now. We love growing gypsophila for sexy displays, vases and bouquets; for gardens nodding to our Nanna’s we chuck in marigolds, poached-egg plants and nasturtiums to make us smile; if we’re going frothy we shove in cow parsley; and for nightly perfume, night-scented stocks... Ooh, so much satisfaction this summer!

You can shove them in pots first or straight in your beds, just get your watering can out if it hasn’t rained for a day or two, flick off any pests and let them do their magic.
