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.

What's the star in your garden right now

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.
