 My first year with Agapanthus

Best hemerocallis

No Verdun I'm not too keen on them

I have seen other variegated ones on a website but can't remember where.

I do have a variegated seedling that I grew from my own seed last year but it hasn't flowered yet.

I have 350 different Hemerocallis , so be careful as they can be addictive.

They need 6 hrs of full sun to perform at their best.

Some good varieties are Right On, Red Rum, German Ballerina, Mauna Loa, there are so many I could go on forever.

No idea if the Hellebore will bloom again at the right time, will be interesting to see.

One of my Hellebores has decided to bloom again.

Steve, welcome

Are you sure that the missing pods were there in the first place, some of mine have no pods where the flower wasn't pollinated.

Are you finding this is a poor season?

I have had bumper crops of Gooseberries & Blueberries, the Rhubarb has grown huge, apple tree is laden , so yes a good year for me.

 Had 11 Small Tortoiseshell on my Buddliea today & almost as many Peacocks, only seen a couple of Red Admirals though.

If you only have 4 goldfish you don't need a filter, the pond should find a natural balance.
