My star at the moment has to be the Penstemons. All bare roots in the winter, things just shoot up with a bit of sunshine!

I have just collected seeds from Dianthus Deltoides (maiden pinks) rockery plants, grows to 10cm 4 inches


I cant remember who offered the geranium Roxanne roots, anyone remember.

Why so few insects this year?

Its a bit early for butterflies here for me but I have loads of bees, the borage cerinthe lupins foxgloves and echium were the star favorites. The penstemons are just out now bees like those.

You could delay the buddlias flowering by cutting them down later, say April, mine are not even out yet but when they are, they will be loaded with butterflies.

I sowed Firestorm last year and this, bought from Marshalls and all 4

5 germinated, I will definitely buy from them every year they are very easy to look after, they are drought tolerant, so plant and walk away, I had a fantastic crop last year.I do put lots of mu*k in the trench though.

what is this plant?

Not to worry Nut 

I suppose, being sideways, it could be 1ft high.
