I have 3 very young Philadelphus Belle Etoile in these beds and they seem to be very healthy and strong. Here are a few photos I took today; plenty of geraniums, ladys mantle, campanula, nepeta and Rose Isaacc Pereiere (sp?) and R. Boule de Neige which were planted winter 2016. Infact pretty much everything was planted last autumn/ winter and the north aspect hasnt stopped it in my opinion

Thanks for the info Alan. I accidentally pulled off a loose plant from this one and potted it up; hopefully I wont have to buy any more when this one dies!

Here is my House Leek flowering; considering it is planted in a small gap in our garden wall it's doing pretty well for itself

Quite possibly, maybe rabbits have had a chew! We are in Derbyshire above 1000ft; would this affec? Short season? It's nice to find new plants growing you havent seen before and hearing their name is a bonus 😁

Young plant? First time ive seen it to be honest. The leaves do look like the plant you say when i google it. I will check on the flowers in a few days to see whether they are scented?
