The Set-Up Has Begun!

Greetings!

 

Even though Easter has passed there is still lots of colour on display with 100's of Solenia Begonia and Gerbera Daisy plants starting to bloom. These give a great punch of color in a nice bright indoor location and can be planted outside once the likelihood of frost is gone.
