I wouldnt pinch out any more if you want flowers this year. I assume they are spray crysanths.

For giant display or exhibition type, you disbud to leave one bud per stem.

You won't need to propagate it. It seeds easily. Just scatter where you want it.

Any ideas for an entry.....

They used to be called Acidanthera, but I think they are gladiolus murielae now. I planted 100 last year and didnt get one flower.

Sweet peas have been bashed down by the rain. I may give them a severe haircut in the hopes of reviving them. Early planted gladioli are starting to flower. The eryngium have turned silver. The three biggest I have cut and hung upside down in the garage to dry.

Lets see pictures of your vases full.

More water while they are growing. Don't wait until they are dry.

growing figs advice needed please

If its from seed its a new variety.

I've grown brown turkey. It in the greenhouse in a big pot but has rooted through the hole in the bottom. It has figs on. If i beat the animals.. blackbirds, snails and rodents, they are nice figs. It survives mass hack downs from time to time.  Ive tried to kill it several times but it always regrows.
