I better post a picture of Wild Swan's no "wuss" 

Lyn well I guess they are a "daisy thing" but daisies are a very large family.  I can grow most of them but I think leucanthemums are some of the most beautiful.  

I have a nice lemon one.

Did those little bulb things grow  for you Nut, can't remember the name off hand?

To be honest, and all joking aside, I don't think I could do that, I have always had rabbits as pets and the thought of killing them upsets me a bit.

its pretty obvious that I will get all sorts of animals here, I live in the middle of nowhere,  nearest neighbour 1-5 miles away, near the edge of Dartmoor, I can't expect anything other than rabbits eating plants, foxes pooing all over the garden and rats in the compost heap!

Is that those big daisies Verdun, Margarette type things, grow like weeds here, but I can't grow Lavender, in the garden, they don't like damp acid soil.

gosh Nut, crocosmia , grow anywhere and everywhere down here, there again, maybe acid loving, 

also can't grow fruit trees, they don't like the altitude and would be blown over.

How to look after

You may as well pull that one out, they are best as annuals, sow some more seeds next Spring for fresh ones.

cut the stems of the delphiniums, not sure if you will get a fresh lot of flowers now though, but you will next year.
