Your very welcome nut, I'm glad they've done well for you. They are very sweet flowers.It's been few years since I've first got the plant and all the offsprings are still white

Anyone done any gardening today?

Been out in the garden all day, pulled up a lot of annuals, planted out lots, generally pottered, enjoying the sunshine. Long may it continue. Got a new compost heap so busy chucking stuff in there

Been having a sort out, got some little plugs of white and purple sweetrocket, jacobs ladder and some white ragged robins if any one wants them. The sweet rocket are a little stunted as they've been in little pots for ages but should grow well if planted out now.Otherwise it's the (new) compost heap for them

How to grow lavender from posti plugs/mini plug plants

I had some tiny little plantlets from T&M years ago. Yes repot them into larger pots as gently as you can. The roots will be fine. If they are as tiny as remember them they will be way too small to plant out, they will just get munched.

Cosmos from container to border

Hello, cosmos is an annual so wont come back next year. Mine were late flowering this year, looking good now. Keep deadheading for more blooms until the first frost.



Jacobs Ladder

I'm hoping mine do the same Lyn, the bees like the one that arrived in the pot. I really like the foliage as well as the flowers.

Can't really remember Jo, maybe a couple of months ago? They germinated well. The ones I have are the pale blue/lilac and white. I love purple but  OH has said this year that's too much purple in the garden!! Been planting out purple sweetrocket & honesty so there's more of that to come

Jacobs Ladder

Thank you both. Looks like they are going in today Might plant a couple in larger pots as well. The original plant was a self seeder. I don't often buy plants or seeds but will check out the variegated types and didn't know that they came in white. I'm a bit of sucker for white in the garden

Never seen them flower before Supernoodle. I do like them. Agree over watering often kills succulents off. They don't really need any water in the Autumn or Winter

Jacobs Ladder

Very pleased with my new little jacobs ladders, grown from collected seed. They are in little pots in the cold frames. The roots are coming on but not filling the pot yet.

Do they die back and re emerge next year? I've not been that successful at over wintering pots in the past but don't want to lose them.

I've got some new space that i could plant them into just that they are so small at the moment
