Definitely must have Rudbeckias in my Golden Jubilee garden next year.  I too love cyclamen.  Not just the flowers.  The leaf patterns are lovely too.

Bargain of the year

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 14:47

I have had many bargain plants this year but I think my favourite is a heuchera "Southern Comfort" from my local flower shop for £1.99 which I bought early on in the summer and have now split into five good plants.

Serendipity gave it the ideal support in my garden when I put it under my red and purple fuchsia - they complement each other beautifully.

Just checked all details.  I do seem to have Polish Spirit.

Chicky, I looked on the site you recommended and the flowers are too small for Liisu. Will check Polish Spirit out tomorrow.  My plant has lots of buds on ready to burst open.  It is very floriferous.

Oh, that was a lovely day in Dorset.  I was so impressed with the way the council had managed the verges and roundabouts in the county and the lovely thatched cottages and then these two lovely gardens.  Bennetts Water Gardens were so beautiful and the Abbotsbury Subtropical too.  I will post some of my pictures.
