I’m impressed. These little plants have really lived up to their names! They have flowered constantly through the summer and are still covered in flowers and buds – fantastic! With most plants in the garden well and truly over, they really cheer you up. I’ve always been a bit sniffy about old fashioned bedding plants, but I concede, they are really good value, and absolutely gorgeous too.
Speaking of impressive: next door the Tarpan strawberries are still flowering with small fruits forming, and you may just be able to see in the lower left hand side that they are red too. Now, I have a question, should I allow them to keep going, or will they just get exhausted and not fruit so well next year? Any strawberry experts out there with advice?
