They're lovely Thee. So bright and colourful. Love the red salvia behind them too. (Y) :D

Do you add anything to your barrows to help retain water? I tried planting a barrow one year and just couldn't stop it drying out. Loved the echeveria barrow, but it's to cold for those here.

No I will lift them and put then into a pot, even though they are very cheap by the punnet ( ones I bought when we allk went out) dont want any to rot and need the barrows for all the bulbs ect... including pink and blue 'bells' :mrgreen:
