Some pics of my before and after garden

Thanks LL.  I do have a few Primula denticulata in my garden but the flowers are more spherical in shape.  They are very pretty and I love them, infact anything with a "blob" on the top of a all long stem, like alliums, agapanthus etc. so I will add Primula vialii to be wish list. Thanks for bringing it to my attention - it looks particularly good in a pot!

Hi LL, What is the name of the plant growing in the terracotta pot on the small wooden table? Looks like agapanthus leaves but flowers more elongated. Very interesting!

I'm based in Kent (The Garden of England) UK so weather is very temperamental, however just harvested a trug full of green tomatos which I plan to turn into chutney.  Ferline was recommended by a friend as being quite resistant against blight. She was right - may of my neighbours (even Monty) have suffered this year - but I rather smugly have not (even without a greenhouse).  We have had maybe a dozen red ones but mostly they grew but didn't ripen.

Thanks again Italophile - you are very knowledgeable!  Unfortunately I don't have that much time on my hands but am a keen amateur with a thirst for understanding.  I think I will give them a try (a little mystery never hurt anyone) but buy some hybrid seeds too.  Incidentally can you recommend any other varieties which do not require a greenhouse (this is on my very long wish list). Thanks so much.

Thanks Italophile.  What sort of varations can I expect?  Distorted shape/colour etc. - I can live with that if they still taste good!

Can I save seed from Ferline?  Not sure if it is a hybrid/non-hybrid variety - does it matter? Please explain!

This one is nice and traditional looking although it only has one foot peg whereas I think the one Monty used (sighs...) had two!
