LesleyK sorry I only just saw your question about the red flower in my piccies. It's Lychnis chalcedonica. Or maltese cross as its also called. I have taken seeds from last year to try and grow more. They are only around two inches. The one in the picture is 3ft ish.

Just a few photos this week. Loving everyone's garden pictures as usual.  Trying to catch up with everything.  Above is the promise of things to come, loads of buds, this is a double headed clematis, beautiful when in full bloom.

Iris and solanum

aquilegia, lupins and geum

my one and only rhododendron.

rather wind burnt clematis, it got hit by the strong winds the other day, but seems to have making a recovery!

an old copper coal scuttle filled with wild flower seeds.  One of the children planted this a few weeks ago and it seems to be flowering nicely.

What veg are you growing this year?

Posted: 16/05/2014 at 23:31

Here goes my list

Planted so far, parsnips, onions, both autumn and spring planted. Potatoes, broccoli,  little gem lettuce. Spinach beet, chard, beetroot, radish, spring onions,  carrots,  salad leaves. Garlic,  turnips.


Still growing on in the greenhouse are cucumbers,  tomatoes,  squash, courgettes, sweet peppers, leeks, cauliflowers.


Have ordered swertcorn plants and dwarf french beans. Only one out of 12 of my french beans have come up which I setmyself. 

Also have a fab patch of strawberries,  raspberries both summer and autumn. Trees, apple, plum and pear which were only planted early on this year. I also have a blackcurrant and possibly something else I inherited, but not sure what it is.

Have also started to set various seeds for cut flowers. 

Phew, I have more than I thought!
