Morning all. Drizzle and grey. We are going to England this weekend, South East, hope to visit lots of gardens.
Wonderful view Hollie hock and it enlarges beautifully. I don't know what ngs means either.
In a previous house we had a low growing hypericum on a bank, it looked great, but the bank was limited by the drive on one side and a path on the other.
My lily of the valley is quite well behaved. One patch of it is being smothered by the previously mentioned variegated ground elder. The elder is definately winning.
Tina, we don't all have the same talents, you just have different ones. Doesn't have to be arty, could be cooking, or bringing up children, or just being likeable.
You can post pics by clicking on the green oak tree on the right of the smiley on the bar above where you write. But if you have an ipad or something that isn't a laptop then I don't know. The oak tree will guide you but you may have to wait a bit for each stage.
I grow Scarlet Emperor outside in the ground. I feed and water them and they grow up and then when there are no more poles they just hang down. We had masses last year, gave lots away. Never heard of them being grown in a GH. My canes are over 2 metres tall after sticking the bottoms in the ground.
Mine usually reflower in the borders, especially yellow Darwin ones - they've been coming up for over 15 years.
Artjak, are you a professional artist? Would explain your name too. Your painting is beautiful. I feel honoured to have been complimented by you. I love paintings, but realistic ones. When I was a young student nurse in London I used to spend a lot of my time off in the Tate and the National Gallery.
Excellent for 50p. You'll enjoy the cold frame, especially next spring.
