What's the star in your garden right now

Lovely flowers, especially the Veronicas.

The comos, I think, is one of the best late summer flowering plants fills a nice big space with its ferny green and lovely bee magnet flowers.

Charlies Allium looks more like the Drumstick , my Christophii was over long ago.

definitely no underwear on hot days, top clothing is too much

Its only been 23c here and giving 17/18 next week.

At the moment its hammering down with rain and thunder rumbles.

I read that for every 30mtr above sea level you knock off 1 degree, we are 3 times that so probably 20 or so here.

Anyone addicted?

Me neither, I agree with Salino about the non gardening stuff, I dont like it, and havent the time for it.

 I like the seed swaps and gardening info, there are lots of general forums on the net for general chat.

I pop in to see the photos every so often and will ocasionaly post one if think I can make a contribution.

The site is not mobile friendly, no private message no typing box etc, that makes it worse for me.

SGL, I have you down for those anyway, also Lychnis and white campion, I will post tomorrow, but will hang on with the white campanulas until I know they are well rooted.

I have only just taken the penstemon cuttings so they will be some time, (if they take)

they are cuttings, not rooted bits.

They're bossing it now........

Thank you, I have to say that I prefer the other border with the soft gentle penstemons in. I have put them on the Star in your garden thread.

those Montretias just take over if you let them and I dug loads of them out this spring.
