Will have a look and see. Today I noticed some have gone all limp! Would have thought new growth would peek through soon!

question about lobelia (the tall variety) and rudbeckia

It was about 3/4 foot across last year. At the moment just brown twigs!!

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

My god man your like a walking garden bible. Hop over and sort out my back boarders! It was an extreme pleasure planting in the sandy soil at the front (I painstakingly dug out and replaced) the back is soooo heavy and sticky in comparison it's not as much of a pleasure to deal with. Just hope my stuff comes! My geyser are not showing yet but I have insurance cuttings. My stoksia also seems to have gone to perennial heaven!! (Unless I'm being too previous!)

Everything else has put out good roots just the verbena. V squat roots and went brown half way down leaves very fast and have just stated in that state.

Think I will try a cineraria when I work out what to take as cuttings!

My green wizard has just started to show. It didn't flower last year with being newly set. Fingers crossed this year

I have a free packet of cosmos from the GW mag but no where to plant if I sow. Do they actually need much room??

That's not what the label says but will watch out. Can you prune or do they not like it. Also hiw do you stop hebes getting leggy and woody. I'm a fan of compact and bushy!
