 I am looking forward to seed swapping for next year. I have really got into sweet peas,cutting them and bringing them indoors for everyone to enjoy.

I think I inherited this and it has never flowered. Do I keep or compost. Looks similar to a day Lily but should be in flower now.

I have an astrantia that wasn't doing very well in my garden,it hadn't grown and the leaves were a bit brown and straggly. So I have dug it up and put it in a pot to give it some tlc. It is away from slugs and in plain sight so I can water it and so forth. Try this method but don't get rid as some plants will come back next year.

Nut and edd thanks I think you are right. Isn't it funny how you try and grow something and it doesn't happen for you,then when you are not even trying up pops one!

I have quite a few plants that have their top leaves curled up with a caterpillar inside,is it doing any harm?
