I think it is Calocephalus Silver Sand: http://www.unwins.co.uk/calocephalus-silver-sand-plants-pid5560.html . What do you think Mrs G et al?

16/09/2013 at 20:37

Get me one get me one ...... Another one for the dear Santa list!!!

i'm impressed Panda, how did you find it?

Had a read and think its needs too much TLC for my talents at the moment...but at £2, if it lasts indoors it'll look good for xmas...3 in a row with tiny red baubles

Thanks too Gardengirl but I think Panda wins this one x

16/09/2013 at 21:18

Hello folks  home, fed, watered and also cut OH's hair - now I'm almost asleep - why does work make me tired?  You don't have to answer that  .............

16/09/2013 at 22:00

Calocephalus silver sand is something we can grow well down here. Perfect in a very hot dry wall

17/09/2013 at 18:56

Am I first? Got lots of tidying up done and repotting of bits and pieces. Put some Allium sphaerocephalon into pots with the Verbena bonariensis I grew from seed so they'll go in a new raised bed next year. Lots of deadheading done but the sweet peas still doing their best. Prepared the shuttering for the step at the gate which I'll concrete tomorrow - weather permitting. Now awaiting dinner.

I've picked apples and plums, and cut up a tray of windfalls for freezing.

Fish and chips for tea, I've not got time to cook.

17/09/2013 at 19:33

Still working

17/09/2013 at 19:40

Evening all. Work all day and rain when come home from work so not even a tour of the garden managed 

Steak and Kidney pud for tea - just right for a dull rainy evening! 

Am hoping for a nice evening one night soon so I can pick the quince left on the tree (windfalls coming thick and fast!)

Scary day tomorrow  Have an appointment with a Psychiatrist to assess what the best course of treatment will be for me. Am visiting The Priory - will let you know if I spot any celebs 

17/09/2013 at 19:48

Bit of a far fetched way to get amongst the rich and famous panda, but good luck, hope all goes really well and positively for you. don't forget your autograph book. The circles we gardeners move in eh...

All the best people see their psychiatrists.  It's the latest "must have"

No need to be scared 4 th panda....just be yourself.  And reeeelax.
