I have 2 - one is pathetic, one was doing quite well but slow to get going at moment maybe because it wasn't in ground.

Lovely deep velvety rich colour though - think it's called Black lady or something similar. Pathetic has been dug up because of building work, so I am now nurturing it in GH. Mine have suffered from neglect so they are alive!!

Just been for a walk though, round the block (about a mile). I have gone from walking 2-3 times a day and gardening constantly to doing nothing. Have to get whole body fit again so walking it is -,can't garden, no digging allowed. Just need a walkmate and I'll be happy

I was going to go for a walk - much safer to stay in and do plant shopping on internet though 

and there was a white Echinops I just had to have and of course you can't just buy one plant can you?  Have to make it worth the postage so.......

and I have wanted to try Sarah Raven for some time so.........
