Thanks folks, we like to go again in early Autumn when everything's gone to seed, all looks very appealing then. 

Parsnip problems

I don't pull parsnips until the Autumn/Winter, wait until all the green has died down and completely disappeared, Agree, they look like they've been transplanted, better sown direct.

Lovely day at Rosemoor, borders looking lovely, nice hot colours. I dont think photos do it justice, you need to be there to see the whole picture.

Nice post sweetie, I'll put the photos on another thread, don't forget the Lavender Agastache.

It really was a lovely day, not many people, weather just right, no seeds ready yet though😊😳

Begonia corms not doing much

Did they have fibrous roots when you repotted, I think vine weevils have burrowed into the corm, you may not even see them, they make tiny dents and curl up in there.

Is there someone there that could really have done that😱? 

Sure they just haven't dried out in that last hot dry spell we had. 

No flowers on sea holly

Rob,, If it dies, let me know, it self seeds everywhere here, I put loads in the compost bin. You're welcome to a few plants.  Once it flowers you will never be without it,  it's not really suited to a pot so try to get it in the ground as soon as you move. 

Name of flower

These Gaura The Bride, along with  Echinops were the first flowers I ever grew from seeds.

Unfortunately   the Gaura was a bit short lived, it grew very straggly after a few years and I dug them out.. 

Can I eat these?

I have to disagree with both of you, on my ipad it's a roundish yellow thing.😀
