Received the achillea today, thanks Victoria

I've got the berberis but as it isn't part of a hedge, I just trim when it gets to snagging clothes on the path length. I have a vicious bush, abit like gorse that I trim a lot as it sends up new growth constantly and I worry about it catching anyone on the face.

Hi somapop,

it looks like one of those compact multi headed sunflowers. Just keep deadheading for more flowers. Sorry I can't help with what variety of sunflower, I don't know many of the names. Hopefully someone else on the forum will recognise it.

Hi Becki

if you have some left could I have globe artichoke seeds?


I couldn't remember who sent me foxglove seeds, they arrived at the weekend, thanks to who sent them.
