Good luck in your new home and garden, Sweet Pea and may it be much better than the last one, with a lovely landlord.

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.

What gorgeous pics. I love Mark's second one too, unusual.

What's the star in your garden right now

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

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 20:42

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.

Topbird, sent you a PM. Don't know if you are getting email Notifications. I'm not at the moment.

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.
