Anyone know what this is please?

Echiveria is generally a houseplant, not very hardy at all. I'd say Dave is on the button.

Is it a Gaura of sorts?

Moth of the day

It was the first I had ever seen, I didnt know what it was. I assumed it was a real Hummingbird until my neighbor told me what it was.

How old is your houseplant?

My oldest houseplant is probably 2-3 years old, an Aloe Vera brought from somewhere I cant remember.

It lives on the window in the downstairs loo with not a great deal of sunlight.

When I was cutting back my Lavender at the start of October there was a Hummingbird Hawk Moth buzzing around.

That was an incredible sight

I must say that the Oak Leaf Hydrangea looks pretty. I dont really like Hydrangeas but that looks lovely.

Dwarf Dahlias

I work in a Garden Centre at a Homebase branch. Not very fond of The becky Dahlia, tends to be very susceptible to mildew.

I do end up up throwing quite a few away through the peak season.

I guess if its grown in containers away from pests it would perform quite well.

I find Figaro Dahlias best for a dwarf variety, never know what the colours going to be from seed either which is fun ^_^
