Buy Thunbergia alata 'Suzie Orange with Eye' (Suzie Series) black-eyed Susan vine: Incredibly generous with its blooms

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well drained
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: tender

    Producing an abundance of flowers over several months, this fast growing climber can be grown in a pot, hanging basket or sunny border. Strictly speaking it is a tender perennial, but if you want to over-winter it, you will need to do so in a warm conservatory or greenhouse. Otherwise treat it as an annual and replace it every year - it's a very good investment!

  • Garden care: Keep under glass where temperatures do not dip below 5C, only moving outside after the frosts have passed. A twining climber, it will need support, and it should be watered freely when in growth - and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser monthly.

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
