Hi gardening granny. Yes, it is schizostylis Major. it is supposed to flower into december. A very valuable plant which I will get more for next year. Oh, dear. My plant shopping list is not getting shorter!

haha Artjak. I bet they have some nice gardens though.

Thank you Lyn. Yes, i cann't wait for next summer. hopefully, i will have two new gardens (front and back!) bursting with flowers which I know I have looked after since the begining of their lives.  I will try to find room for them inside the house, but have got a funny feeling that i will run out of windowstills sooner rather than later.

the Rudbeckia indian summer is still going strong. Bugs like them a lot. I found two different types of ladybird resting on them, maybe they are looking for a suitable winter shelter?

I think this is a hebe? it flowered in spring, it is putting on a second show now. I am wondering if I can take a cutting of it now?

Lyn, they look very healthy.I have ordered about 70 young /plug plants from parkers too. I look forward to potting them on. A very ambitious project for me as this is my first full gardening year, having caught the gardening bug last year. I will never look back now.

Wow! Iain, that is beautiful! how big does the clump need to be before you can divide it?

Hi Kef

I have just looked through my photos and afraid that I didn't take any picture of it! What was I doing?! I will take some photos of it next year if it survives the house move.

I got my plant in April last year in a 9cm pot. It didn't flower last year. This year it had two flowers. I'm in west yorkshire and the plant is in a shady spot.

Thank you Lyn for your advise. I have put them on the windowsill in the living room. It should keep them nice and snug.

Yviestevie & CT, good luck with yours!
