I think it must be the Gwenllian  as it's very pink. Many thanks everyone

A neighbour of mine has a large one of these but the flowers and buds are much pinker than either of the ones I'm growing. Has anyone an idea of which variety that would be. The neighbour inherited it when they moved in so has no idea herself. I can't find much info anywhere and thought someone here may help me.

I've still got some  of the  ones  I  planted last autumn. They still have a few flowers on them. Each time they get long and straggly I give them a haircut. Then they just start sending up buds again. I saw this tip on tv , but can't remember which programme.

I agree! I'm missing GW; got withdrawal symptoms, and it's only been gone one week! Same old grumble though, that despite having millions of gardeners in the UK we are not considered important when it comes to planning programmes. In comparison to cookery shows which seem to be on every day, we are ignored!

Agapanthus dilemma

Posted: 22/09/2013 at 11:09

I was given a pot of fabulous agapanthus this year and I had 3 great flower stems on it. I am not sure whether to cut the stems back now they've finished flowering or to leave them to die back like I do with the lilies. On searching the internet there seems to be conflicting advice, so I thought I'd ask my fellow gardeners on here. I'd quite like to save one head to collect seeds, presumably I leave it on the plant to mature them.

Alchemilla mollis and asparagus fronds turned into crystal delights!

elaeagnus flowers?

That's strange, as one of the reasons I bought it was that next doors variegated one smelt so gorgeous. I think I'll ask her if I can take some cuttings.

Thanks for all the replies folks!

Oh maybe I'll never get flowers then. The only thing I can do is go to a nursery and buy one whilst it is flowering, then I'll know I've got the right one won't I?
