It's a beautiful mix, Yani! :D Like you say - so pretty. And they're so well covered with blooms and blooms to come - what are you feeding them...

Thanks Luzy and Spider Lily.

I haven't put any fertiliser yet, I think :-? . But when I planted them, I use good organic soil, lots of gypsum, cow manure, garden peat then cover with pea straw and Euci mulch. For the first 3 weeks when I move my seedlings there, I covered them with shadeclothes as that area is extremely hot in the afternoon. Now they are strong enough and loves full sun. Hope this helps, Luzy.

Forgot to add: Occasional Seasol spray if I remember :oops:

Aha! So you fed them even before they got there! Excellent example of what happens when you prepare the soil well! :D
