Borders looking great Dove - love the yellows and purples together.  Morning Glory wigwam is a great idea too - might borrow that one next year

Morning all - fine at the moment but showers expected - will try and dodge them.  Have a few plants that need to get in the garden and a few that need potting on.  Plus lots of things that just need looking at - love this time of year

Hope Stacey has a wonderful day at HC - there were agapanthus EVERYWHERE - so she won't be disappointed

Lizzie - laurentia is an annual for me - but flowers like mad til the first frosts.  It used to be quite hard to find, but now the GCs over here have it quite frequently when the rest of their annuals come in.  Its also called isotoma - just googled it, and T&M sell seeds, although i have never grown it from scratch myself

Stacey - if you go down the lavender route, check out the floral marquee at HC - there is a stunning display of all sorts of colours - you could mix a few of them for a different look

Morning all - hope mini-Daisy enjoyed her schooltrip - sounds like a long day. One more day til the weekend - this week has just flown by

Monkshood problem .......

I planted a couple of deep blue ones last year - no sign of flower spikes yet, but I remain optimistic

Great dahlia and white cascading shrub too (sorry, can't remember its name, but it is a lovely pure white)
