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?

Heres the picture .....

not very good at ids (others on here are much better) but it could be a flowering cherry of some type.  Very pretty whatever it is.  Do you live near a golfcourse?

Glad you had a good time KEF

Good day forecast here, so will finish mulching the flowerbeds, plant yesterday's purchases, and do some pottering.

but first...another cuppa.

If you use the RHS plant finder (its on their website) and put Eileen in as the plant name quite a few come up - including an iris and a couple of pinks
