I thought I had answered. When flowers are hungry or hungry because they are too thirsty to absorb nutrients they, and their leaves, go paler. Flowers are usually smaller too.

This mornings posts made me laugh

Went to Hyde Hall on our way back to Eastbourne. Lovely, but not as lovely as the other 3 RHS gardens. But it's young and new projects are underway. Bought a clematis "Crystal Fountain". OH is a bit worried about how all the plants will fit in the car on our way back to France.

Morning all. Suffolk isn't flat. In fact I've been surprised at how curvy it is, lovely rolling hills, fields and woods, pretty houses from pink to beamy, lots of thatch.

Free zinnia seeds are tomatoes!

My zinnias were zinnias, rather leggy when young, grown in GH then planted out. Started flowering about 3 weeks ago.

I think it could be the fertiliser. I've noticed it with clematis too. Roses are hungry, thirsty plants.

Evening all, what's left of it. Still in Suffolk. We looked at pretty villages today, such as Lavenham and Kersey. Saw Gainsborough's house and paintings in Sudbury. Went to Bury Saint Edmunds. Had salmon and salad in a pub. Drank a half of Adnams bitter. It rained but didn't matter too much.

Tomorrow we are going back to Eastbourne, via Hyde Hall.

Pub in pretty Kersey. Some houses are painted and some are beamy.

Morning all.

Glad you had a good day Dove, so did we. Beth Chatto's garden was lovely, a damp garden with ponds and a dry gravel garden. But why did I think it would be bigger? Website said 7 acres but it didn't feel so big. Bought a very blue sea holly, a salvia I haven't seen before, a spirea with red flowers and Solanum Glasnevin. Then we went to another nearby private garden called Green Islands, where they do garden course days. Lovely too. I bought a lysimachia "Beaujolais" - Verdun's fault!

Then we went to Dedham, very pretty village, lovely church, and Flatford Mill where Constable painted "The Hay Wain". The heavens opened and we got soaked!

Oooooooooooo

Verdun, perhaps if you put tomatoes in your title then Italophile might notice it.

Louise I think you may get more response if you start a new thread for this, perhaps you have but I haven't looked yet.
