Lovely Verdun. Wish they would enlarge.  Only just seen this post. How did I miss it? We've waited so long for these photos, but you did send some once before. We knew you were an expert.

Wow, it's fabulous, what an absolute delight.

Hi....bit sheepish.  Meant to wait until grasses and perennials were out.  It's the grasses I think make my garden

Thanks though. BusyL. What I want is a garden your size.

Just found this thread. Fabulous garden, Verdun. Do your neighbours try to live up to it? And when is your open day?

05/07/2013 at 19:57

is this him

Open day?  Not that arrogant I hope GG.  

I hope to persuade more of you to grow grassss so will post some pictures of them soon.  Nobody seems to enthuse about agastaches either so a pic of some of these might tempt you when they open fully.  And a new tender salvia called Amistad now opening. It looks stunning even though not fully out yet

I have just planted agastaches, Verd, grown from seed by moi.

Thought you might have opened your garden under the NGS, or even be part of an open village. You have too much sense of humour to be arrogant, cos humour goes with a sense of proportion.

Gardening Grandma, Do you have a garden assistant?  moi?

I'm always being pushed fo either show my veg or my garden in the local show.  I feel it would spoil my enjoyment of growing purely to eat, as in the veg section, or of growing for competition.  I am a very competitive person but in the garden I dont want that edge.....make sense?  We all have the best gardens because they're our own creation and what makes us happy....???

Nice sentiments tho GG..thanks

I have grown agastache, but not always successfully. One year they were Apricot Sprite that I grew from small bought plants, they were super. Then I tried a purpley one but it didn't thrive. I've tried sowing them but they didn't germinate. This year I have a pink one called Heather Queen bought as plug plants. They are still tiny, have only just started growing and I planted them out in May. They rarely last the winter here. What am I doing wrong?

08/07/2013 at 11:24

Hiya busyL

My varieties include black adder and sangria that survived the winter.  I have Blue Boa, raspberry summer. and a couple of others too.  I'm taking basal cuttings of all of them to,overwinter in the GH.  

Its the wet that agastaches don't like down here so I guess I could treat them by covering with raised sheet of glass.  They are bit tender so cold will kill them too. Its third year for me with black adder and sangria but others are new so very much a learning curve.  However, from young small plants they are, most of them, in full flower. black adder, for example, is 4 or 5 feet tall.  Blue boa is 3'.  Eye catching, erect and long flowering.  Will post pictures in couple of weeks so forum can judge them
