Thanks, Verdun. Don't know where you live, star gaze lily, but we are lucky enough to live close to Knoll Gardens in Dorset. All my grasses come from there - including this one. They have an excellent website and catalogue.

Should my crab apple look like this?

Should my malus Profusion look like this? It did have blossom earlier in the year, but ever since has looked pretty much like this: bare-looking branches with blotchy-looking leaves at the ends. Has it reached its sell-by date, I wonder?

Wow Verdun! Thank you! (I was hoping you were looking.....). I shall do as you suggest.... do you think both portions should flower in the late Summer of 2015? I'd hate to be without them...

 I love this grass....it is now in its fourth year - and I am wondering what to do next Spring to ensure it is just as good in 2015. Do you think it will need splitting? Is it too big (approx. 1m 70 at the moment) or can I leave it be for a while?

I will/I won't grow that again

Dianthus "Arctic Fire". 72 planted, all appear to be thriving (lots of healthy leaves), but not one single flower. What a waste of money........apparently perennial.....worth leaving in position overwinter?

I took 10 cuttings of Delta Sarah three weeks ago and am just about to do the same again. I too think this is a bee issue - but cuttings are so easy and would stop you worrying...

I hope it will. (If it's still there....) most things are being blown everywhere at the moment.

Many thanks for your reply! I like your idea - I have a number of heucherella tapestry and like these very much....

 I suppose the dahlias and polyanthus flowering together in my garden are not that unusual - but I was surprised to find petunias and hellebores doing the same thing...do you have oddities too?
