Vipers Bugloss

I grew Blue Bedder a couple of years ago. Sowed them into small pots and planted them out keeping the compost and roots as intact as possible. They were lovely, very successful but didn't last into late summer like other bedding plants. Can't get the seeds here in France, I bought them in the UK. Vipers Bugloss grows wild here, very pretty.

Have weeded, dug, raked and manured in veg garden. Planted out 58 baby broad bean plants. Re-potted golden philadelphus into big pot, probably it's last time, won't be able to lift it again, it was heavy.

Just had a shower, got really hot in veg garden, it was 20° in the shade. Have weeded, spread manure, dug, raked and planted out my baby broad bean plants x 58. The re-potted my golden Philadelphus which was in a pot. Rather heavy, now in a bigger pot.

I enjoyed Crème de la Crème Bake Off because it was so different to what I churn out at home. I liked the artistry, almost more like an arts and crafts programme. Didn't really seem like food, but I would love to have tasted it. I think they should have given it a different title, it was nothing like the Bake Off with Mary Berry.

Have spent some time in the veg garden.

I planted Diana Clare yesterday, near Blue Ensign. At least it's a plant that deer don't eat.

What plant or shrub or...?

Hello Toni, we need to know too if it's in sun or shade.

Pulmonarias prefer the shade. They are easy to grow.
