    What an interesting list Ben – I am also coming to the conclusion that including a few perennials in the cutting patch works better for me too.

    I have never grown Gomphrena ‘Strawberry Fields – might have to give that one a go!

      Hi Karen…some might say an odd selection! But I have chosen them to fit in well with the annuals I already grow…we will see how it all fits together in 2013…can’t wait! :)

    Agree! And bulbs for early season vavavoom!

    I like growing bulbs around the edges so I don’t keep digging them up by mistake and perennials in patches together so they don’t block the sun from the annuals?

    PS You were missed at the Bloggers’ tea Ben, you would have been King Bee!! x

      I don’t know why but I’m just not into bulbs…they’re just…um…er…too ‘bulby’ for my liking. May be when I get established in Cornwall I’ll try them again.
      Yes…should have gone to the bloggers tea. :) xx
