Before the frost got it, mine used to flower like that. Then it has flat black shiny seeds.

Should I add one to the white buddleja? Not sure how you'd get it home,it's in a bucket sized pot. And it's variegated. If I remember I'll take a pic tomorrow.

Yes,all these"it only takes 10 minutes to plant sweet corn"

But it takes three hours to prepare the soil first. I have a block of 7x10 planted a foot apart. Sweet corn fest come September.

Apple blossom is a double pelargonium. It gets a bit lanky, but it's not a climber.

Well, I got the sweetcorn in, watered in,  shredding finished.

Now I'm cream crackered. Its not the planting, its digging it over, 3 barrows of FYM, fork it in,add FBB, fork it in, and then plant. Still I shouldn't have much to do now until we eat them.  Although I might need to borrow a Jack Russell to keep the squirrels off.

 Now , glass of wine,long bath, then bed. 

work tomorrow,
