Ooo! Verdun, will your Aconitum set seeds do you think, please remember this poor seed grower if it does.

such a lot happened on here since earlier this pm.

samples, my surgery won't accept them in anything other than the jar they supply.

doggy piddle, never needed to try.

Cakes wrapped, yes, DD may have some for desert.

Doves hollies, plenty of R&R I think she may be past rock n roll.

never can tell though. x

Here's my potentilla, but it only has five segments to the leaves OP has seven.

we could be forgiven for thinking that's what it was!

Why can't you post pics Sonya, it's only iphones that won't do it, or is that what you are using.

the only picture I can see on google images is a yellow one taken in black and white.

Thank you Marc for all the seeds you sent me, I am thrilled with those, lovely to try completely new plants.

Fishys toadflax are really lovely, the rabbits did like it though. But the ones they left alone are big plants and lots of flowers. Late flowering so good for bees after other plants have gone.


Strange crinodendron friut?

It's hardy fo me, they have been here at least twenty years. It puts up with rain and wind coming off the Moor and at an altitude of 960 ft, which is always colder than at sea level temperatures.

sawfly control

I am glad you said that Verdun, about the Agastache, I am changing almost all of the plants in my garden next year and have 100 agastache plants so far, hopefully the Salvias won't get rabbit eaten either. 

I bought SB plant invigorator recently, supposed to kill all pests, it wasn't bad on the greenfly but you have to keep at it on the white fly. I wonder if that would do for the saw fly, (is it those that get your Solomons Seal)?

I don't think they rated it much on Beechgrove last week, Sue very quickly glossed over it.
