Fushia’s for Floral Friday

Hello everyone and welcome to another #WatsonsFloralFriday.

Heat and humidity has been the order of the week and it looks like it will continue into the weekend.

Colour is really starting to come out now at the shop.

We have Fuchsia Candy Bells, a beautiful miniature shrub with spreading tendencies. It has masses of deep pink pendulous flowers from Spring through Autumn on red stemmed green foliage which make this low maintenance plant perfect for lightly shaded sites with moist well drained soil.

Fuchsia magellanica Tricolour is an attractive variegated shrub with arching branches and creamy green leaves flushed with pink, red and purple flowers in Summer. Happiest in part sun and grows in most soils.

$3 a pot for beautiful Gazania’s must be the bargain on the week. Kiss Orange Flame and New Day Tiger Mix produce large daisy-like flowers in a superb range of colours. Plant them in a warm, sunny spot in well drained soil and enjoy. Ideal for borders and containers.

Finally this week, add some flavour to your cooking with our selection of herbs.

Italian Parsley, Triple Curl Parsley, Coriander, Basil are available in punnets of 6 for $3.50. Or buy 5 punnets for $15.

Mint, Sage, Common Thyme, Pizza Thyme, Chives, Dill, Lemon Balm are all available in pots for $4.

We look forward to seeing you.
