Would you divide this Lupin?

Hi Cheryl, yours looks nice and healthy with loads of flowers. I do think they depreciate over the years though. I took cuttings at the beginning of April off one of mine that looked as if it was struggling a bit. The oringinal plant now looks better for it and the cuttings are doing well.

I think I know the ones you mean Violet, I hadn't thought of that. When I first got it I did think Agapanthus, based on some pictures I'd seen, I looked it up in Dr Hessayon and other name for it is African Lily. Will post some pics when it flowers

What did you do in your garden today?

Thanks for the pics Leadfarmer, really lovely

Been outside all day which is great, planted the last of the corncockles out as well as the statice. Siberian wall flowers went in the ground as well. Cosmos is now out of the frames and living outside. Moved some white tulips and some pulmonaria. It's been a great day

Thanks for your replies, yes a hermerocallis is more of a possibility. It was dug up out of a neighbours garden, she didn't want it anymore and she called it the lily

I thought agapanthus & hemerocallis were the same thing

I've got a couple of shoots that came off the main plant when I planted it. I've just stuck them  in some water outside in a shady spot and they are rooting

Hi Whippet , don't know it's name but I have some of this here.

Are these lavender plugs acceptable or DOA?

They look very poor Steve, good result that you got your money back. Some of them look like as if they can be saved though.
