Best blue flowering plant

Posted: 30/05/2013 at 13:30

I must admit blue is one of my favourite colours too (even my wardrobe). You're way ahead of me Verdun, only a couple of geraniums are near to flowering here. Delphiniums, lupins and pentomens must be weeks away yet. I also have a fondness for blue Clematis

As suggested removing current soil is advisable and for roses I would also use mycorrhizal fungi such as rootgrow, it will get your new rose off to a flyer. Climbing Crimson Glory is a good red with strong scent.

Not exotic but delphiniums are great plants and there are some fantastic shades of blue out there. I also have a fair few hardy geraniums which should be flowering very soon, given a bit of sunshine, very easy plants that give a lot.

It's pointing towards being a compost problem rather than where they are. I grow the wild rocket type and once you have it, you have it forever because it self seeds everywhere, but it's a tasty weed to have and any stray seedlings are easily pulled out.

Lonicera morrowii is my best guess

Not something I've ever seen before either

If it is a virus then I would get rid of all the infected plants asap, heart breaking I know but these can be spread quite quickly.

Is it isolated to one or two plants or your entire crop?

Any idea what these plants are?

I'd leave the Yellow Loosestrife in Sue. It has a long flowering time, easy to grow and can easily be kept in check.

Loosestrife even*

As above for 2 and 1 could be yellow loofstrife.

They just need moving on into larger pots, as Mattbeer87 says it's a lack on nutrients in the compost and potting on is the answer, they'll soon green up again.
