March Plant of the Month – Calibrachoas

I love the non-stop flower power which Calibrachoas have to offer. They start flowering from early Spring, and with a little haircut in early Summer they come away with even more flushes of flowers which will continue until frosts. These callies are perennials, and as long as they don’t get too wet in Winter, they will come alive again each and every year. Added into hanging baskets, pots and containers or in garden borders there is a colour to suit any gardener who loves pops of impact colour. New varieties include the Strawberry Shortcake & Tsunami Firestorm (pictured). Available at all Oderings stores or online: Don’t forget to come along and support the city’s youngest gardeners at the Third Oderings School Gardens Show,  Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 March, 43 Hargood St, Woolston.

December Plant of the Month – Gazania Wild

The reaction when people see the Gazania Wild series is WOW!
