HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 26/06/2014 at 07:20

My garden is desperate for some rain. There is a  crack in the lawn that we could lose the lawnmower in. I have a soaker hose on the veg patch but it's not making much impression.

They'll probably give it the Turner prize....the made (flower)bed.

Hemerocallis or day lily. Dont know which one, there are hundreds of cultivars.

Geranium Maderense

It is tender up here. I bought a seedling in penzance, and I was told to put it in a big pot, and feed it. It flowered the second year.

Try feeding it with a high potash fertiliser like tomato food.

Spectacular in flower, especially when backlit with a setting sun.

 Of course , being monocarpic, they then die, so don't forget to save the seed.
