What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: Yesterday at 17:43

I have put a vanilla fraise paniculata (sp)? in the ground, i hope he doesnt turn blue.

The white ones here turn a dirty grey with bluey/pink edges after a while.

Have you tried the rusty nail treatment. There was always a baby milk tin full of rusty nails in the shed even if you didnt have a baby.

My summer sowings flower the following year, maybe because we are more South.

Do they flower the same year Nut, 

Established cuttings of E. Bowles Mauve - plant out now?

Posted: Yesterday at 14:18

I think they are much too small. They are all loved by slugs and will be gone by the morning. 

I keep mine just under cover in a cold greenhouse, cold frame or plastic greenhouse, when Spring comes they will be much stronger plants and stand a better chance.

They will bloom next year but will come into their own the following year.

The b mauve gets leggy so you did right taking the cuttings. There agsin, plant out in Spring.
