It looks very much like my Gypsophilla Elegans, or is it what we call Mouse Ear?  grows in the hedgerows.

 These are only this big because they are in the conservatory, I could never grow them outside.

Keep them regularly dead headed, take of the pods as soon as you can and give feed about once a fortnight. Tomato food is good or any high potash feed you have.

Thats it, the males are the big blousy show offs, like the Peacock!

I hope you can survive them but what you can do is take root cuttings, division of the plant, do this in october or when the flowers die down,

 

you can pot them in compost and keep them in a frost free place, greenhouse or conservatory and you will have lots of new plants to plant out next Spring.

Well done OL, very pretty,

Did you know about taking the female flowers of the plants, they are the ones with the squarish shaped seed pod behind the main flower, if you pick these off, your main bloom will be bigger and they will flower for months, if you leave them on, they will produce seed, plant will think its done its duty and stop flowering.

Sorry if you already know this.

I can see now why you are missing the message, when you go into your messages, you have to click on the title, in our case it was 'HI LYN' then you will see the whole message. I think you have only looked at the first intro line. I have sent another.

I think that if you collect your own sweet pea seeds, you cannot be sure what colours will come. If you only want orange you may have to buy. I dont think I have seen orange ones.

Feeding & Mulching

David, if you prefer powdered feed, can you not just scrape back your bark, apply feed then cover again.

I think you should use whatever you are used to, you must be doing right you have a fantastic garden.

Kitchen, are you sure its rust and not just brown on the cut end of the leaves.

I always take my leaves off by running my fingers right down to the bottom of it and breaking at ground level. Any cut end of a leaf will go brown.
