Flower identification

I found this link but have to disagree with some points. My daughter lives in St Austell, home of english china clay, they grow rampant in her garden. I bought a pot and split it hers have done much better than mine, she is forever digging them out.

Mine are in acid moorland soil, they do well, I have moved some to around the new pond.

I never really worry about what should go where, just plant them in and off they go.

May have been a bit cold for yours up there, although mine have been covered with snow and frost and do well.

Just try them and perhaps a covering of leaves or compost next winter.

I could post some up to you Nut, you sent me such a lovely lot of seeds that I was absolutely thrilled with. They soon spread, bit like Montbretia, you will be digging them out soon!.

I started off like that last year Dove, its good at the start but then when you get busy you say,,,I wil jot that down in a minute... you know what that means.

I am going to try not to dig anymore beds, just concentrate on whats already there.

Try not to be so fussy with weeding, (that one will be broken)
