Blooming Gorgeous!

When we moved into La Croix Blanche the garden was sadly lacking some flowers...


I can happily say that, with the help of cuttings, splitting perennials from my garden back in England and a large dose of Lidl's excellent flower seeds, we now have flowers in abundance!


The planting is an informal mix, but we're pleased with the result and fortunately we like poppies - most of these have self-seeded from outside the garden!



We look forward to the flowering of all the China Aster, Snap-Dragon, Dianthus and Hollyhocks etc.. grown from seed but I think you'll agree, we've plenty to keep us busy in the meantime!


Anyone got any spare vases??!

Those Lidl seeds are just amazing as I have discovered from experience. Your garden looks great now. Diane

Bob Flowerdew recommended the Kohl-Rabi "Superschmeltz"... at the time Lidl were the only source we could find in the UK.
Since then we've discovered that Lidl seeds seem to have a better chance of success than many UK suppliers.
Good germination rates... all other Lidl seed has germinated well... save last years Sunflowers [sourced from Lidl at Perrusson/Loches]... but that failure may have been down to the drought and irregular watering.
