kniphofia - don't like it - memories of a house I had with the front garden taken over with it.

I know there are more elegant modern varieties but it's a case of first impressions

Now I understand why you didn't want it for your jewel border.

Matty2 - or may I call you Matty  ?? I had a similar problem with kniphofias when I moved to my present abode. Once I'd got rid, I vowed never again!

Kestrels and kingfishers though I've never had either in my garden.

Knee pads are an essential item for me

I've got three kniphofias in the garden now, sounds like they spread?

Kale, not ever grown it

Matty2

Hollie -I think you have to be brutal with them every now and again to keep them in check

Call me matty 

Are we allowed Kornflowers because of the sound 'K'???

chicky

Oh dear - just planted 3 kniphofias - am I going to regret it

 

chicky

If we are allowed kornflowers then can I have kornus kousa (I only joined in recently so missed all the c's)

hollie hock

Good,they don't sound too  bad then, I'm learning to be brutal in the garden

Well if that's the case, I'm going for Kourgettes......growing these for the first time, big seedlings

Lovely Kestral nut

Flo Bear; Knee pads - they are my comfort blanket! Without them my knees would be well and truely knackered.

Art- Is that knackered with a K?.....
I'm a bit the same with Kniphofias but there are some nice new varieties as opposed to the (rather ugly) standard one.

Kestrels definitely. Knautia-lovely. Great pix.

Jasmine

sorry!  Jasmine tried to do pic but won't work at all

Is it L now?

I'd like to kick off with lavender. I love them. Will be sending off for the GW offer when I get a minute so I can have lots around my new paving.

Busy-Lizzie

Should be more Ls. Lilac and Lily of the Valley, all coming out here now and smelling so sweet. In France people give each other sprigs of Lily of the Valley on the 1st May and people sell them on the roadsides.

I'm trying Laurentia from seed for the first time this year.

One of my favourites Lilies

Another I love Lampranthus. Wil try topostpics if I can get my stupid laptop working later.
