Gardening A-Z

There’s a reason polyanthus is one of our top selling plants year after year. In fact, there are a couple of reasons. Polyanthus is very easy to plant and grows just about anywhere – as long as there’s some sun.

There’s no argument winter gardens don’t have the same degree of colour as spring ones. But there’s also no reason you can’t have colour in your garden during the cooler months. Plants like polyanthus and pansies can all pack a colour punch at this time of year.

Everyone loves to get flowers. But more often than not, they’re dead and gone within a few days.

Got a lemon, lime, tamarillo, or any tree in a pot for that matter? Why not add some pizazz to it by planting polyanthus? Polyanthus are great for adding some colour and texture to pots. They don’t grow very high, and are tight, low and compact plants - which also makes them perfect for hanging baskets or garden borders.

Instead of swinging by the service station for a decaying bouquet this mother’s day, make your mum a living flower arrangement that she can enjoy all winter long. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

“Indoor pots look great and are more cost effective than buying cut flowers,” says Awapuni gardening guru, Tod Palenski.
