Compost query

Cant beat Jacks Magic from Westland. Lovely and dark and holds onto moisture well.

They look lovely

No sign of any Lily Beetles either. The little pests have been attacking mine again this year.

Although I always find and squash them.

The 3rd and 4th picture I believe is an Astilbe

Please can anyone tell me what this plant is?

Have to agree with Dove.. Since birds have moved into my garden, I get very few pests.

I did mine on the 3rd June. They are all still alive but I see no roots coming out of the bottom yet.

I keep telling myself patience is a virtue.

The seeds have been developing for a while so i'm hoping they will dry soon for me to get sowing.

I removed all but 1 today and got my Fuchsias and other random stuff put in

Agree with Perki, the flowers don't last forever 

Regular deadheading helps promote new flowers and keeps the plant looking tidy

Im not too fussy on colour, I just love the smell and the bees love them too.


Do they generally come true from seed or will it be a surprise?

I guess so. I wanted to put some fuchsias in :P

Maybe I will just leave 1 Plant in to collect seed from.
