Know what you mean Beaus Mum

Hoping to do a big cut down in Sept when the little fellas are back at school.

What do you do with baby foxgloves and lupins?

I would plant out your foxgloves in the second photo, and put your other plants in the greenhouse.

Yes Beaus Mum it was Smiths. Its still owned by the same people but in the last couple of years they've given it abit of a facelift. That's also happened to Flowerland in Iver.

I got the white echinops from a garden centre in Uxbridge Middx, the only place I've seen the white form and not seen since. The front garden was just grass when we moved in and now its a mixture of colourful shrubs at different times of the year, spring bulbs and violets and grasses.

I think you need to get them outside. Die back seems to be normal and I just pull the dead bits out.

Here's a pic of what yours could look like. They are about 18-22in tall.

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