Yvie - wisteria leaf buds are smooth and brown ....a bit like an apple pip.  The flower ones fatten up and look more like the head of a bluebell before it opens.  Its dark now, but i will venture out in the morning and post you some pics, just in case my wonderfully descriptive words are leaving you scratching your head

Panda - my molly-in-a-bucket came from Fidget - i was in a car so got the bigger one as I could carry it easier. Your molly-in-a-pot came from Nut I think.  How are your tikki torches

Lovely - astilbe shopping is next on the list then - anyone have any favourites??

My dicentras do well in shade, but pretty damp shade - don't think they like it too dry.  Might try an astilbe there too - never thought of that as a combination before.

Had a wonderful day out there - even got to the end of my to-do list

Pleased to report that Fidget's Molly is looking magnificent here, with 5 flower buds.  Will take pics when they bloom.  Fidget via KEF delphiniums are also developing their first true leaves.  And Nut pulsatillas are nice and leafy, with a flower on the way.

anyone seen Beaus Mum recently?
