I love Gardenfantic's Cupids Dart. I must try and get some seed. Not too many summer flowering blue flowers.

pottiejam.. i will harvest some for you if you like.. they are pale licla blue.. lovely.. thou not tried to harvest their seeds as like isaid once you got it hard to get rid of.. they grow about 3ft tall and if you keep cutting off dead flowers they just keep coming back... it dies down over winter and reshoots spring.. it is 8ins tall already.. message me your addi and i will send some when ready.

my bearded iris haev been flowering for a while now.. my mums are over done now fro the last few weeks.. amazes me how they differ over the country.

 and i am loving my bluebells this year too...

 i was wondering if anyone had a jacobs ladder white seeds going.. i bought some on e-bay and out of the 25 seeds only 3 plants that grew were actually the right plant..

sorry about spelling.. cant find glasses.. arbutus1.. start sowing end of this month and try off in pots in greenhouse or sheltered spot first.. we didnt feed ours..they seem to like and free draining sandy soil.. so whether that is why i do not know.
