I think that looks really pretty

I wouldn't be pulling them out until they're totally over - I don't think it looks unloved at all.

There are quite a few different Lavateras.  Some are annuals, some bi-ennial and some perennial.  Lavatera arborea (English Tree Mallow) is a biennial.

Now that's interesting, because I've found they do very well in pots if you treat them right

 This is one we brought with us from our last garden, on the day we moved house!

Do you remember me buying Rosa Bonica last year - I'd grown it before and it is such a lovely rose for cutting

Chris, I'm not a 'proper biologist' but it's pretty obvious that it's a perfectly normal term in botany as well as in zoology, which is probably the usage you were aware of.

Definition of viviparous in English: adjective bringing forth live young which have developed inside the body of the parent. Compare with oviparous and ovoviviparous. reproducing from buds which form plantlets while still attached to the parent plant, or from seeds which germinate within the fruit.

They're not in full sun are they?  Most hydrangeas are much happier in shade and the recent temperatures will have scorched them.

That being said, if one of them was looking poorly from the beginning, it might be past it now

Bright blue skies, but cooler than of late - 12.5C when I got up - we'll see what the day brings ...

BL - how awful!  Glad you got home safely - fingers crossed for the next attempt!

LillyP  - sounds like a rewarding day
