Ohhh, cool. Well I have some foxgloves and white sweet rocket. I have been looking for some Miss Willmotts Ghost for a few years now but cant seem to find it as a plant

Probably too prickly for GC customers Sam. I shall have seed when the time comes but they're biennials so it'll be a long wait

Oakley Witch

Ohhh, that's OK  I can wait hehe. I planted some sea holly this year and if its biennial, that would explain how not much of my long term seeds have done much. So I'm assuming that, a biennial will take quite a while to grow?

Biennials sow this year, flower next.

Some perennials, sown early will flower the same year, most in the next year, some of them take a year or two longer

 Thanks nut. Finding it all a bit confusing at the moment

Itcan be to start with. I've had more years at it than I want to think about

oooo I bought some white alliums the other week, I know it may be too late for this year as mine are now going to seed but they are really tall....just a minute I'll go ahve a look at their name.............................Mount Everest

Oakley Witch

Can they ve stored then Rodgy dodge? I have some but am scared I loose them over the winter. Can they be lifted or do I leave them in? I have the standard purple ones and drumstick ones

nutcutlet

my alliums stay in. 

Try Zaluzianskya Capensis - the perfume reminds me of Swizzels lollies!

Rodgy-dodge

I'm sure they are perennial and stay in the ground

 

Alliums stay in the ground and cope with even our hard winters - at least the Purple Sensation types and the tall white ones and nectaroscordums.   The Schubertiis are a bit less tolerant and only one came back this year.

Nearly dark, Clematis recta is shining out. So is Geranium pratense alba but that's one of the floppy ones, though it hasn't flopped yet this year

Hello bought some perennials early this year 10 for £10 and got some lovely campanulas which I thought some were going to be blue but they all turned out to be white.

White honesty, white campion, white mallow all biennuals which can be sown now for next year.

Thinking further ahead to next spring, there's some lovely white crocus and daffs

Lillies  The white regale. Amazing scent in the evening. No scent but definitely glow...Zantedeschia aethopica (think I spelt that right) Crambe cordifolia if you have the space. Huge cabbage plant but the smell is almost overwhelming. Pinks but not lol. Some of the white dianthus smell beautiful. Sure will think of more later
