Welcome to the " we hate salvia hot lips " club. 


Give me a lovely blue , especially salvia guanajuato.


See original post

 Wonky and I are big fans of S. 'Wendy's Wish' ... a bit on the tender side tho'   The pink is a better shade than it looks in the catalogues, and the stems are a lovely deep mahogany ... looks fantastic. 


Welcome back Worzle 


Chicky   Glad you're having a lovely time ... I have a foodie friend living in Cyprus .

Cats and coffee

Sit on your patio with a pump action water pistol ... cats are quick learners and have a well developed sense of self protection ... you don't have to soak them or even wet them at all ... I wouldn't harm a cat  ... aim at the soil just in front of them.  They'll find somewhere else to visit.  


But you have to repeat it a few times and then intermittantly so they don't think the "water squirty thing" has gone away.

Thank you Hosta, but I'm not keen on Hotlips either ... there are prettier salvias of which I have several ...  Wonky already has a similar one, but I think hers is more two-tone pink than 'red and white'.  ... I'll ask her if she's interested but I think she'll say no thanks.  


Oooh,thank you  where am I going to put the Cautleya spicata ................... I might have to enlarge a bed .........

We've had many threads on this subject ... the most effective strategy seems to be to get a Water Scarecrow
