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!
