Double Petunias (variety is "Belinda.") I may order some of these this spring. I'm not usually a fan of petunias but these are lovely.

"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"

Courtyard garden with corner arbour

This small, walled courtyard garden has been turned into an ideal summer retreat perfect for socialising and relaxing. The eye is immediately drawn to the charming grey and cream painted arbour come summer house. Pretty hanging baskets and pots bursting with pink petunias pick out the fuchsia scatter cushions within the inviting space

The first ever "Black" flower...a pertunia called black velvet. Can have yellow stripes within the plant. I cull the stripey ones as they come through, it's a constant battle!
