SO!, took slices of Clementine cake to Compost Master Stall that I and 2 colleagues were running at Lions Club Event in The Walks in King's Lynn today. Spent 5 very enjoyable hours talking to people about making their own compost, a few people knew a lot already, some were really keen but had fears about smells from compost (there are none), the children loved the wormery and especially looking at the worms through a magnifier, all in all a very productive day.

Sorry Verdun, no cake left

Wintersong I don't think my plant has yellow flowers; I will know in the next week or so.

Welcome Herby lou Happy Marion is spot on I think, decide what you want, figure out which areas get the sun and when (you don't want your evening glass of wine in some damp corner; you want to see the sunset). Some plants like shade, some don't.

It may not have been warm enough for the lavatera, you could try again? Verdun's idea is good and would it be too late to sprinkle some Nigella seed?

I am just about to sprinkle white annual lavatera in the gaps, then cover with a thin sprinkle of compost; I believe they don't like to be transplanted, tried it once, they were not happy.

Just had a thought, perhaps a thread on plant paintings that we have done/liked by other artists?

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
