Ooh sound amazing Verdun!

Joyce- yes, my neighbour has the same problem with her kitchen flooding too! I though you may have an outside tap. Maybe it is a washer....

Joyce- shame you're not my neighbour...would love to come over and help you water.

Is there any way you could ask somebody to help you, or have a hose installed, which may be easier?

Aaaah this sort of thread always puts a smile on my face - so lovely to see other folk's gardens 

Do you have a photo of your agastache Verdun? Would love to see it!

My star at the moment, in my tiny garden, is a clematis viticella Alba Luxurians

 I think I'll be very sad when it stops flowering....

Might do VS- it's not all that big though so am a bit worried about splitting it....

Will do - tomato feed in the watering can as we speak 

One thing I don't understand though - if they are too lush and being too well looked after, how does feeding them work?

Glad it helped!

This is a great site for gathering info and advice.

that said, I'm no closer to understanding why my erodium won't flower and if I need to change something....

Good point Bekkie.

Everything else in that bed flowers well though and I have never pampered it - honest
