Help would be welcome

am down in London at daughters and this is growing well in the middle of her grasses. I think it is a flag iris that has gone to seed but as mine always get chopped before this stage I am not sure. What should I do with it,?

grasses are all going to get a  good tidy and the packet of wild flower seed is showing nigella and cornflowers and viola

Thank you all very much

David it's super to hear your familiar reassuring tones

i will just have to wait and see, it does seem very obvious tho that the the pink/ lilac strains are stronger than the burgundy/ white?  A good inspection tonight shows some sign of bud formation. Thank goodness, it's the middle of July!!!

Thanks Pete and Fairy

the weather has been shocking cold temps and lots of rain hit it doesn't explain why some are ok and other aren't. Just disappointed as was looking forward to some different colours 

Maybe they will all catch up 

Sweet pea advice please

this year I decided to try some new varieties

Ethel Grace (lavender)

Sylvia Moore (rich pink)

Valerie Harrod (apricot pink)

Oxford Blue (mid blue)  done this one before

White Frills (pure white)

Windsor (maroon)

they have all been watered fed and pampered the same way 

ethel, sylvia are growing well but the others all seem to have stpopped growing The leaves are sad, weak looking, affected by moths of some sort. They are mixed up together in both ground and cotainers. No difference 

I don't even have a flower yet!!

Advice please
