Salvias...what am i doing wrong?

Posted: 28/04/2016 at 23:40

I had an Amistad survive the winter last year. I had taken cuttings. It emerged from below ground and eventually flowered long after the cuttings had. I dug one up, and took cuttings this last winter. They are in the greeenhouse. The potted one is behind the cuttings, so I intend to start fresh from cuttings each year now.

Actually I dont think the above is canary bird which is single. It may be Williams double yellow.

Canary bird is one of the earliest to flower. Felley Priory have it in flower at the same time as bluebells.

Have you got Allium karataviense? they have a couple of broad grey leaves and flower later on in the year, after the usual ones that flower for Chelsea

That is a line about 6 ft long. About 50 bulbs that were dug up as tiddlers a couple of years ago and then grown on. I will use them as cut flowers.

 I dont know if this helps. These are the tall purple pom pom type, I think either purple sensation or globemaster.  the photo was taken last week. They are in the veg patch for cutting.
