    Hello everyone!

    Our wedding is in August - 10 months today ahhhhh! We're doing a lot of DIY and whilst we are going to pay for bouquets and buttonholes, my mum's come up with the idea of growing our own flowers to decorate the church with.

    Our colour scheme is purple and silver, and we grew some this year as an experiment. They all came out pink. No purple whatsoever, even though on the packet the bulbs were purple.

    Just wondered can anyone recommend what flowers would be good/ how to get them to be purple/ when and how to plant them? Bulbs or seeds best? Any tips on how to stop them dying or turning pink?

    Thank you xxxx
