Can anyone put up a picture of these violets? I can't as I don't have a camera.

Perhaps I'm being too fussy.

Yes, I've checked the back spur of the flower & it's much paler, almost white.  I didn't think it would spread all over the garden like a weed.

Pound shop plants- any success stories?

One did have a small shoot. Trouble is it's a job to see them in the packet which is sealed.

Bought 2 rudbeckias from poundland some weeks ago, potted them up to help them on their way.  Waste of time, never came to anything.

I bought one small clump from the GC now they've spread all over the garden like a weed.  I think they must be dog violets as they have no scent.  A bit disappointed.

Anyone planted out their sweet pea seedlings?

My sweetpeas are about 3" tall, should they be taller than this before planting out? & should the tops be pinched off to encourage bushing?

Yes, Green Magpie, my skimmia is also large.  I don't think it's a problem with soil type as my other skimmia is quite happy, also, I have 2 large camellias growing not too far away & they are in full bloom. It could be it needs a good feed, anyway I'll give it a try.  Many thanks for everyone's help.

Sorry, I've got the wrong name. Looked through my gardening book, I think it's a skimmia.  It has small white flowers in spring & red berries in winter.  Does that make more sense?

Hi everyone.  My Weigela seems to be struggling.  The leaves are looking quite pale & they seem to be falling off, although it still has plenty of red berries.  Does it need a special feed? Thanks for any help.
