Garvinea - My New Garden Plant Crush...

The label on this gorgeous daisy like plant pushed all the right buttons!
Robust!
Will overwhelm you with colour
Non stop flowering
Use as indoor cut flowers!

The two I have started my garvinea collection with are:

A red single called 'Sweet Glow'
This red is so bright the camera had focusing issues!!!

and:

A pink,white & green double variety called ' Sweet Memories'.
Sooooo pretty.

I don't have a huge amount of pink in my gardens or pots...
but I just could not resist this one.

These plants can be planted in a garden,
 in pots on a patio, or porch,
 and make a stunning border plant.
Soil must be well draining and moist in a half sunny position.
Fertilise regularly,
 and trim off the dead flower heads to encourage beautiful new blooms.

I planted mine into to metal buckets
 which I drilled drainage holes in the bottom of then painted.
They are a fabulous addition to my porch.
