There was a big clump of this in the dell garden at Bressingham. Very like gypsophila only blue. I thought it would make a good flower arrangers plant.

Thanks for the coffee, Dove.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go.....

Cloudy here, I'd better remember a rainmac for when I come out of work. I guarantee the heavens will open at 5-55. Lets hope the stockroom doesn't flood again. One of the staff has to go to two funerals. Ex father in law today, mother of new partner tomorrow.

Comfrey like damp soil. It grows very well on the damp soil at the side of the river.

Its probably too dry  where it is and gets mildew.I keep cutting it and throwing it in a bin with some water. It makes good comfrey tea to feed tomatoes.

Can anyone identify this plesse?

I must get some of that campanula. Does it stay upright on its own or does it need staking? I love the matched borders, lilly. I bet your sweet peas will flower on into September. Mine have just been attacked by aphids..
