What's the weather like in your area?

Monday morning!  It's a lovely sunny, still morning in Essex perfect for some tidying up (garden not house) and mulching.

I'm in Essex and have had mine in a pot for years. I moved it close to the house wall in winter and it has never shown any sign of damage over winter. I planted it into the garden this summer and will be monitoring it closely this winter. I'll probably throw a piece of fleece over it if the weather forecast is bad. Let's see.....

Which part of the uk are you in? How sheltered is our garden - coastal, winds, frost pocket?

Plant Id Please

If the flowers had been removed you wouldn't have seed pods. You will have to look out for them next year...maybe get the kids on board and see who spots them  first!

Looks as though the lupins have self seeded themselves in the gravel so they must like the conditions you have. The flowers come before the furry pods you speak of - they are the seed pods. What you have will be the 'wild' lupin not the hybrids that you are viewing on google so the flowers will not be big showy blooms but rather small and probably a dark purple/blue.

1st one is a lupin. Can you give us more info on the daisy flowers - colour, form etc or better still a photo or a photo  of the individual leaves as it is difficult to see them at the moment.
