Lovely pictures

Foxgloves

I've got a white or peach one that is showing signs of buds, but not much else.

Hadn't thought that some of them might not flower....... I take it they will flower next? I grew loads of white and peach ones last year will have to take a closer look at them. I would say so nut...........sounds like to the plant it's not worth flowering and setting seed so late in the year. Seen some Lupin buds coming through, didn't think I see them before the foxglvoes

That looks a lovely spot Dove

I have a mini forest of them, been using them for cut flowers as wellCollected seed off the ragged robin and now have loads of new ones, which are flowering.

Growing from seed is great

 

Advise please

I've started growing herbs for the first time, I've got some some sage and tarragon in a raised bed with loads of drainage and some mint in a pot. It's been great fun already going out and picking the mint to make my own mint sauce

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
