Yes, meant blue flush, but had to look at Google pictures as Wild Swan doesn't seem to have arrived in Dordogne yet.

Talkback: Give borders an autumn boost

Now I've learnt something from this. Mine was labelled in the French Garden Centre as Wilmottianum, but on looking it up I'm pretty sure it's Plumbaginoides. It's not very tall and it spreads.

Lamb sounds lovely WW, glad you enjoyed it.

Perhaps it was anemone Honorine Jobert, also white with yellow middles, but not the pink flush behind the petals.

It could be that the spade was faulty, not your fault!

In the 1st pic there is something that could be a Mahonia under the Stag's Horn Sumach. The Sumach has the red autumn leaves and the red flowers spikes.

Oh dear, sorry, they look very thin and spindly. Have they had enough light? If they are on the kitchen table that's not light enough. The leaves should be much nearer the bottom, then when they have a few leaves you pinch out the tips to make them bushier. Someone more expert than me will have to tell you what to do now.

I have it already, in a flower bed, spread a bit, needs controlling, but lovely.

It has absolutely tipped down since my last post, hope the garden doesn't drown.

Like all wine, but not if it's very dry. Like pasta, like most things but not fat, gristle, kidneys or egg whites.
