one of my new resolutions artjak. Currently culling the dirty pink and mauve aquilegias to make way for this year's new ones.. Achillea grandiflora, magnificent, but not when horizontal. Syringa pabaliana (which may be spelled almost like that), lovely flowers, grotty bush. anyone want it? you'll have to collect.

Nut I agree, when I have a moment the horrid purple aquilegia is going, though I think a neighbour might like it.

The syringas in general are lovely in flower but they're a bit skanky when the flowers go aren't they?

Can I have Undulating curves?

That sounds a bit rude

...stop making up your own jokes now..

FG - who held the spirit level for your fence rails?? She counts as an under gardener (just don't tell her, as its probably not cool!).  Just read your other posts - think you should build it a bit higher and top it with spikes! Good for you for speaking out - might not have sunk in at the time, but they might be thinking a bit more about that busy road now.

Are we please moving on

veronica - those lovely tall slightly untidy plants

 Verbascum lychnitis, I see there's rather a lot of other plants in this pic 

Macleaya cordata, evening primrose and one of the nepetas, and a Verbena bonariensis in the background. Is that the lot. The verbacum is the white one

That's it....just violas!

Vinca major variagata beacause it must be important if it is a major

Verdun, the most beautiful flower in my garden....sorry, I had to


......ok, I'll get my coat........

Veronicastrum for height, colour and companion to my tall grasses

verbascum - the other varieties

14/06/2013 at 21:51

Does Verdun  spread?or is it native to a particular area.............maybe Cornwall?

14/06/2013 at 21:55

Valerian - I know wild as well but at the moment lovely contrast with thers in garden. Used to have white variety - no more - any one any seeds?

14/06/2013 at 21:58

Gilly takes over.....some say too much!  

14/06/2013 at 22:04

feed it cake and it settles down though - Victoria sponge

14/06/2013 at 22:07

Verdun...taking over?...Never! 

...or Vol au Vents Matty?

14/06/2013 at 22:09

Oh dear,I had heard that it was only the variagated verdun that did that

We will all be expecting Verdun seeds later in the year.

I can only repeat violas- such pretty things and still flowering their socks off
