Verbena bonariensis Verbena

Posted: 06 July 2012
Overall: Beautiful in the evening it seems to glow. Last year it was 6ft high and 4 ft wide.
This year bought some plugs from ebay and they are growing tall on single stems, so snipped off the top 3in to make them bushier plants, and pushed the trimmings into the edge of the pot and now have many more new young plants in only 2-3 weeks!

Eremurus x isabellinus 'Romance' Foxtail lily

Overall: Hi
I bought some bulbs this year but have not yet planted them, so should I plant now In June or wait until Oct/Nov?
Planted 5 last autumn, 2 are showing leaves about 5 inches high but no flower spike is that usual? The frost did burn the tops slightly.
I have clay soil but added 2" of gravel & sand before planting, and covered with conifer clippings during winter. Any tips and advise most welcome. Fingers crossed a spike will appear soon...
