Salvias belong to the sage family, I think mine stink really, bit like cat pee I have just sniffed a cutting.

I am pretty sure that  is a Salvia, could be Black and Blue. Very easy from cuttings and not always winter hardy.

I am thinking of digging my Lobelia Queen vics up and bringing in for the winter. Didn't last year, but did the year before, which was their first, they made loads of little babies so I had several plants by the Spring.

When they are in season in the super markets,  I have one a day, but it's short lived.

they are firm, not as hard as an apple, I peel them as you would an apple and then cut them in pieces in a bowl, texture is like a firm melon or a nectarine. They are very sweet, full of glucose, gorgeous.

If the weather drys up a bit I can get seeds from my yellow montbretia, it's not as tall as the orange if anyone's interested. Still got some of that big yellow calendula also some Bronze Beauty calendula.
