Hundreds of Dianthus barbatus (biennials) were planted around the Reception area. Earlier this year half of these plugs had been potted on into 3 inch pots and the other half planted out in open ground in the old fashioned way. The ones planted outside were about twice as big as the potted ones so that is the way they will be done next year even though there is a lot more work involved with continuous weeding. It will be interesting to see if the potted ones catch up with the ‘free range’ ones.
