Thrillers, Spillers And Fillers

Shades of pink
Shock Wave Petunias (Petunia x hybrida) are the earliest flowering of all petunias and their strong branches spread out quickly to fill up baskets and containers. The Pink Vein variety is a soft pink with darker veins that run through the petals. These pink beauties are combined with Blue Bacopa (Sutera cordata) to weave in pops of lavender or blue among the show of pink, creating an overflow of cotton candy-coloured blooms in the basket or container.
This basket of sunshine combines the bold, bright yellow blooms of Osteospermum Voltage Yellow with the crisp Petunia Easy Wave (Petunia x hybrida) in white. Expect an abundant gush of big, bright blooms from spring through to autumn. This combination is easy to grow, hardy and will make a lasting impact when placed in a sunny spot.
This basket is like a rainbow of colour bursting out of the pot. Plant Calibrachoas in deep yellow, rose and purple for a colour sensation that will bring happiness to any balcony, patio or garden. These brilliant blooms grow best in low light and tolerate shade well.
These are just a few of the chic ways you can fill your baskets or containers, however the options are endless. You can create your masterpiece according to your personal taste and remember colours don’t clash when it comes to plants.
