i have to say that gardening is always a learning curve.. never mind how long you been doing it.. we can all go read up what is best for our area etc etc.. i get plants that the label says it likes sun.. but it hates it and loves shady.. so it is only by doing it we learn it.. and if you never ask you never know.

i was told we learn something everyday.. well most of us anyway.. so i look forward to this.. i have been gardening for years and my grandad as top shower..but i make mistakes all the time and some silly ones really.. but hey that is the joy of gardening, some grow some dont some do much better than you ever thought and some dont as well as you thought..

i love this about gardening and enjoy it every year and will continue to do so.

and for tose who come on here for advice for hteir gardens or family or friends gardens.. doesnt mean they are wrong or deserve the response they got.. it would make me feel very offended and that all my years were for one has the right to write with such tone or venom to another poster on here.. and practically say they are stupid.. no one!!

Plant id please

sorry did wrong button the vipers bugloss is not perennial but it self seeds like a foxglove if you let it.. tiney black seeds when flowes are gone.. is it bit prickey when you touch it.. that is vipers bugloss

the agastache is meant to be perennial but i treat it as half hardy depending on where you are..

@nutcutlet. no it doesnt have darker veins in is pure creamynish inside..  i sowed some last year and only a few flowered this year so possibly flower following year.. but last some time.. the seed like foxglove and have has many seeds in each pod as well

 this is you still want some of my white astrantia stacey.. and cant remember what else it was..

i will send my seeds out soon except the giant scabious as they are still flowering and will do for some time yet.. then i will harvest for sowing next year..

i can add digitailis grandaflora to my seed list also.. a lovey perennial foxglove with creamy yellow flowers about 18ins tall.. mine had been in my garden for 4 years now and each year coms up twice as big.. so is perennial i think..
