Are they the ones that die back, I love a bargain! I have been told about an evergreen but have forgotten the name!

Do you think is too late?? Should I scrape back the soil and see or leave it be and hope it sets seed. I think I get greedy when I know I can multiply plants.

I have just seen the end of carol Klein talking about root cuttings. When do you do these and how?? Can I from a plant only planted this year??

I'm sure these were perennial, I'm usually so careful to ensure that. They were right next to a perennial sunflower , a pink and a white with crimsen spots. It's raining otherwise I would be out with my torch looking for the name. 

looks like i ke I may be routing around at dads for seedlings if my 2 don't come through, I hoped they would add some height and something for the bees.

I'm not sure of the variety. They flowered till about October then just the flower stem. I will route around for the plant labels, gosh again I am amazed at the type of variety. I hope they do last through till next year!

Evening all

 

i took out 2 failing hollyhocks and replaced with 2 foxgloves. Apart from the fact that they looked stunning and had bees all over them. They were at the end of the flowering season but couldn't resist. I have planted and left alone and the flower stem is still on.

problem is I know nothing much about them. How long do they last for, are they only multiplied by seed. I have put them on the sunniest side of my garden as 'told' to by my dad. Any hints tips thoughts would be most welcome.

Oooh that's good to know. It's hellebores I'm particularly interested in and shade loving plants small compact types. Will have a look on eBay.

It's exciting getting new flowers. Was tempted with the bareroot hellebore on the GW offer page but I'm unsure as there is the time debate!! :-/
