They use to do open days when there were in Aberdeen. They moved to a bigger plot a few years out near Banchory I think. Yes it's brilliant for us Scottish gardeners.

Verdict....your new plants this year

I was really pleased with my ornamental sage, I got it for a pound off the Homebase 'Death Row' shelf. Just needed a bit of TLC and WHOOSH! it went. Also grew swan river daises this year for the first time and was really pleased with their continuous flowering. They are ready for the compost now.

Failure: Red lobelia, very spindly, much prefer Crystal Palace. Mini sunflowers came and went far to quickly, I wont bother next year.

Thanks Fairygirl, do I do the cutting in the normal way? cut below a leaf node, remove lower leafs?

Sorry for the early start I have to ask these things when I think of them

Hi Nut, It still looks a bit to small to try dividing. I don't want to kill it

Hi, I have had the above since April and its still going strong. It's a perennial, so can I take a cutting from it? If so what's the best way?

I have to have two pairs of glasses, one to use to find the first pair I took off! I have not yet lost the second pair yet, but that day will come.
