I've got geum Mrs Bradshaw. Lots of red flowers. Could you put up a picture of the pink geum?

Alot of the flowers are slow to open but once they have, they're flowering for ages.

Yes they should be. Mine have only just started to open this week, the yellow ones in the last two days. I've got two more that are still in bud (pink ones), for some reason they are always last.

Two yellow tree lillies, the scent in the evening is strong. And my Watsonia is in flower, eight flower spikes in orange and electric blue stamens.

Both my parents worked. My mum would leave me a note telling me what was prepared for our dinner and I cooked from the age of 14. I did washing up from the age of 10. All three of us could do all household jobs by school leaving age. We all did jobs for my nan who was severely arthritic. We never looked upon it as a boring chore, we were helping out, and in our way we still do this.

Just checked back and I think you asked earlier today.

Hi Waz

this question was asked by someone earlier today. The answer is no. If you do this you won't get lots of flowers or chillis. If anything you can pinch out the top so that you get more small leaves, more flowers and then more chillis. You'll have a bushier plant but nothing excessive.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
