Hi Fairygirl, this was more recent...........might have been countryfile

I was wondering if the daisies were ox eyed and what the yellow ones were?

Hello everyone, not seen a single foxglove in flower yet, amazed at how late they are. Lots of healthy leaves and just a start of flower buds on a couple

Good idea Bev, were the pictures taken last year? There was something on a programme I watched recently was talking about this. Just imagine if all the councils allowed this to happen.....

Theres a few in there that I've introduced into my garden. Love the lone sweet rocket

I do often have a look at the roadsides as I go by will try and take some pics

 

 

Lupin growing advice needed

Yes I think they are easy to grow, I have a few here and they tend do their own thing. slugs and snails do love them but if the plant has a some well developed leaves, they will pull through. I have a couple in heavy wet soil and some more in some lighter free draining soil, I think they do their best in partial shade. Agree with the others it's worth buying one that you really like first off.

I have grown them from seed but will be going down the cutting route in future for any extras.

I have loads to pot on Fairygirl, I'm just going to dot them around here to see where they do best. I've been wanting this plant for a while

Hello everyone, all the verbs are now growing but the ones I potted on are miles ahead of the rest............I'm starting to believe that they will grow into big plants

Beautiful pictures Marion, really like the second one, the red is stunning

Looks a lovely spot Andy, be good to see what you've done with the blank canvas.

The day lilies look beautiful and bright  Busy Lizzie, just accquired the plant, looking forward to seeing what colour it's going to be.

New arrival

Think it might be a hermerocallis now. It does look exactly like yours chicky. I did have a look at the roots before it went into the ground, the roots weren't fat and white, more stringy if anything

I'm still happy with it, looking forward to it flowering and seeing what colour it is, peach one sounds good

Thanks everyone

How about morning glory, I put a stick next to one afternoon, by the evening it had attached itself right round it
