Yes, I suppose this thread is starting to get a tad top heavy now, although I've never minded repeating stuff over.

I'll start another one later....just a little busy at the mo.

Yviestevie, I think the information on Eagle's webpage re not watering directly from a hose, is intended for the seed to planting-out stage or during cold weather.

Once the plants are well established & during summer temperatures, watering from a hose will be fine.

The flowering period does rather depend on care and prevailing weather conditions including picking/dead heading, watering etc and would guess the setback in August may reflect some lapse in care. Having said that, I would expect that the flowering of Feb sown plants would now be coming to an end.

Pleased to hear that, Yviestevie and that the service was up to expectations.

I'm sure you'll have a wonderful display next year.

Yes, Chatsworth offers some great opportunities for anyone with a camera.

Not sure if the second pic was worth the changes.

Is that the statue at Chatsworth , David.?

Do you have a close up of the face with the veil over it?

. A masterpiece of carving. Absolutely amazing.

 

Yes. it was taken at Chatsworth fidget and no sadly I didn't take a close-up of the face. I have the un-cropped version.

 Took these clouds the other day, a polaroid filter helps bring out the blueness of the sky.
