It will be my birthday in 16 days!

Gaillardias ......who grows 'em?

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 10:02

I've grown them, but they often don't survive the winter. They are much shorter than heleniums and the flowering period is a lot longer. My heleniums are doing well but this year I only have one gaillardia left from the 12 I bought as small plants 3 years ago.

I agree about box too, hate the smell. Thanks for the names of the heleniums, Verdun. I've just ordered one called "Red Jewel" - anyone know it?

what will go with Delphinium summer nights

I think white cosmos would be lovely as it will flower through the summer when the delphiniums are over. And it's light and feathery so won't smother the delphiniums.

I really feel for all those with worries about elderly parents. I had that problem, but don't say much on Forkers. Daddy died 5 years ago and Mummy died 2 1/2 years ago. Miss them. It was hard being in France, went to UK often to see Mummy in the home.
