Reed, google 'Common centaury' and see what you think for the little pink flower

nutcutlet yet again you are correct. pat on the back and a big thank you from me

Had to think about that one Reed, never seen it in growth, only in books. What sort of soil have you got? Maybe I could grow that, it's quite pretty.

well i only moved a couple of months ago to a new house in Suffolk. the site is about an acre and we had to install a new perforated pipe to our sceptic tank the other week. a 1 tonne digger couldnt get through the heavy clay so we had to get a big boy in to dig the trench. the centaury is growing at the end of the garden next to a farmers wheat field. i havent done any digging up that end but im surprised to see it likes sandy/chalky soil!!
