What are your favourite plants in the garden

absolutely love my bargain flowers, Lilly’s are my absolute favourite and have a beautiful smell, already had 3 neighbours coming out to tell me how nice the smell is only problem is how do I make them last longer any ideas would be much appreciated. Hoping to see other people’s favourite plants and how they take care of them! :metal::green_heart: @Colanoscopy recommend to tag @G-paS for the shared love of flowers :blush:

I don’t know about favorite, I really like all plants. Chili’s I guess, garlic and peas are up there. Morning glories are up there too though, they grow like mad and you don’t have to do anything to them! No food, no deadheading, just plant em and let them rip! Also I have pics on my phone haha.

Morning glories and bindweed are related, but not the same. Morning glories are annuals, so they grow from seed every year, bindweed is perennial and regrows from the same roots every year, which is why it so invasive. Morning glories can be invasive sometimes too I guess, but they rarely reseed themselves for me. :man_shrugging:
