Agapanthus, the large flowered ones, or tree lillies very tall and a nice scent to waft indoors on those summer evenings.

A manky pelargonium. You need to cut it back once its finished flowering or take cuttings to make new plants or buy a replacement.

Raised bed filling

We used our clay soil from the garden, mixed with compost and gravel. We were digging a pond at the time and making three huge raised beds. Once plants were in we put wood chip on top. The beds are not far off 10 years old now and we just leave the plants to their own devices and have never had to weed it.

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.

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