Will you get much frost in France? Obviously plenty of rain going by the growth rate. My echinops this and last year are 7 ft tall.
We have just got back from France house hunting in the midi-pyrennes, the weather was poor. Will be going for a long weekend for another viewing.
I assume the plants will be the same in France as everywhere seems very green, and the conditions similar. In June did see a wisteria in full bloom with a hydrangea beneath it, a second flowering for the wisteria I was told.
Are there many places to buy plants in France, only saw one on my travels, and are the prices similar. I often buy some excellent perennials from Morrisons and bought a lovely salvia from Tescos- didnt see any plants in the intermarche supermarkets!
