What you will need:

• 3 Senetti

• 3 scented wallflowers

• trailing ivy

• John Innes Multipurpose compost

• 4 slow release feeding tablets

Make sure your pot has a hole for drainage. Place a flat stone over the hole so that nothing but water passed through – otherwise the drainage hole could get clogged and the result would be bad drainage and poor flower results. Putting small stones at the base of your pot usually clogs up the drainage hole so be careful with that (as I've already said, large flat stones are what I use)

Dead-heading garden flowers:

Dead-heading flowers is a garden maintenance task that must be done if you want to have flowers throughout the garden season. The more you dead-head, the longer your flowers will continue to flower. I know that last week I spoke about dead-heading also, but it is just so important that I just really want to drum it in!

Watering:

Water only when dry. Try not to spray flowers with water as it spoils them. Just wet the compost, not the flowers.

Feeding:

With slow release feeding tablets, no other feeding is required!
