I would really like some geum seeds if anybody has any spare.I think I've got a Mrs bradshaw plant.

Having watched gardeners world on Friday and seen that they can flower for 25 weeks who wouldn't want them!? The one that they showed was Rubin.Would anyone like a swap?

The pink one is a small dicentra(bleeding heart).a side on photo would be more conclusive.the leaves look similar to a Welsh poppy,which I nearly mistake it for in my garden.I like it.does well in dappled shade to deter cats

I had to take out a recently purchased nepeta from my garden as the local cats were going mental for it.

Could I replant the catmint next to stinking iris to deter the vermin?
