They are phlox drumondii, I think, David.

I remember Busy-Lizzies! I still grow them every year from plug plants. Had a few ill ones about three years ago, but all OK since. Perhaps France didn't suffer so much.

Thanks for that, Lizzie....I didn't know.

Higgy - I knew they were Busy Lizzies.....I just wondered if anyone remembered them, post mildew disease.

Can't remember what these were called.

Anyone remember Busy Lizzies?

Very nice shots, first glance I thought they were Willow Herb. But no disgrace to them (Willow Herb) as I always think that many of nature's so called weeds are quite stunning on closer inspection.



Growing Sweet Peas

Verdun - The main advantage of autumn sown sweet peas is the fact that they produce blooms much earlier (mid to late May) than those sown at other times.....although they do cease flowering earlier too.

Re fragrance, (as with roses) the older varieties such as Spencer's have the strongest scent.
