Hellebore followering in June??

Mine still has flowers on it from very early spring but the seed pods are now flourishing.

My heart is in my mouth every time my alliums come into flower because they are so blown about.  They always seems to survive and look gorgeous.  This year, because of the high winds I've given in to temptation and staked them.  Do you usually stake yours - how - and are they OK?

Clematis Suggestions

We have a clematis Polish Spirit.  It is a lovely deepish purple and blooms well every year.  It never goes above six or seven feet and is very hard indeed.  Its a late bloomer that you prune to the ground every February.  A beautiful plant.

Don't know.  Does it come again if you keep it year after year?  Do you lift your tulips each year.

Great ideas, though I'm not familiar with all of them.  Thank you.

I want to fill gaps in my garden from July until the frosts cut them down.  I have plenty of shrubs but need perennials. I love purples, whites and subtle pinks.

Hi, does anyone know the variety of tulips Carol has in her cottage garden programme filmed at Glebe Cottate.  They are golden orange and Carol grows them in pots.

I think I'll look for red gables.  Thanks so much

I've seen one advertised called Loncera Japonica Darts World.  Its described as pink but looks red.  Do you have any experience of that one?
