25 years ago, not that long.

I would actually love some lilac delphs please.

Can you google the plants when they arrive, I have kept the labels.


Lphs please.

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: 02/09/2014 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.

My thoughts are with you alll

I care for my parents, dads 90 mums 86, but I am so fortunate to have been able to have a lovely 2 bedrommed extension built onto their bungalow so I am here all the time.

I also feel fortunate because I am an only child so all decision are just mine.

When my MIL was in care, there were 5 children and they all had to ring each other when anything needing deciding.

Although Verdun has a brother, it may not be a bad thing that you are alone in this.
