summer hanging baskets

Our English boys disappointed in the soccer world cup on Friday. They play Slovenia in a 'must win' game this afternoon. The nerves of the nation are frayed!

To inspire them and to bring them luck, I show one of our red-and-white themed hanging baskets. They've still got some filling out in months to come, but I'm pleased with their progress so far.

I used peat free organic compost and I feed weekly with dilute comfrey 'tea'.

So, not for my car, the waving flags. Not for our windows the big England banners. Not for me the football shirt.

What is more English than gardens and hanging baskets? Add to that a patriotic colour scheme and you can bet Wayne Rooney will perk up!!

Good luck boys! Come on England!
