No hint of any poppies here yet, but seen a few self sown ones growing

Don't have any irises apart from a lone early one that always pops up in a window tray.

Love the new arrival Fairygirl, gorgeous velvety dark colour

I would just cut off the spent flowering stems down until there is another shoot and then that will grow flowers  I have a couple from last year that are looking a bit woody as I didn't really prune them at all last year.......but they are still flowering.

Thanks artjak, I was thinking the same just based on what others have been saying. When you dig them up to check can you just replant them if there not ready?  Can't really remember when they when in, maybe February.They take a while don't they

Hi Fairygirl and Busy Lizzie, this was my first time to go one, had a good day out, really enjoyed having a look. That was my favourite one, just because of it's remoteness and the polytunnel   I'm glad the pictures work propertly now

Thanks everyone Had a quick look and seems to be good for insects, one of the sites says that you can get the annual and perinnial types. I really liked the leaves as much as the flowers, didn't seem to grow that big either

Saw this yesterday in one of the gardens. I was taken with it, like the blue green leaves and flowers.

Could someone tell me what is?

Thanks

Just been catching up, beautiful pictures

Just found a pic taken yesterday from my first ngs, doesn't really show much of the garden but the views were amazing. There was a large poly tunnel to the right of the pic and also a large veg patch all in rasied beds.

Did have a couple of pea pods when I was there and they were so sweet
