Why don't I remember what plants I have?

Thanks folks.

Yes Tetley, the grey matter is a bit fried, especially as I've probably pulled more of the s.patens out! Could it self seed as I (also) don't remember planting it in that border

Yes FB, the grasses are what you gave me, but not sure which ones. there's definately two different types (well three if you count the hordeum).

Still need to look up S.pennata, Nut, but it doesn't ring a bell with the name. I'll try and get a better photo.

Lesley - pass a garden with a huge Bowles M every day, always first to flower (before almost anything in my garden) and just keeps going!

Winter - yep, got other lobelias which have been in situ a few years, they do 'ok' with only a little care (poor things) but took a chance and will give this one a different place and see how it gets on.

Marvellous! Another lost thread I'll start again!

Runny, love the black hollyhock, they don't do well in my garden, in fact don't do anything!

Matt, what's the penstemon behind your astrantia? Looks like one I have (not in flower yet), but this is its 'sister' called 'ice cream strawberries and cream' -

this first one I think is a salvia which wasn't meant to survive the winter, anyone know?


The next two I expected to be the same grass (tenuissimaa?) but they look totally different, Can anyone please ID them?



(the one to the left - I know its a hodeum on the right)

thanks guys.

hi all!

I finished work early today so where else to go but GC? Hard life really. Thought I'd get some mint to go with a gift for a friends favour ( the gift was Pimms, cucumber, strawbs, etc). Forgot the mint and had to go to supermarket later! However I came away with Bowles mauve (wanted  it for years, but not bought - and still don't know where it's going!), chocolate cosmos (cos it seemed the right thing to do), a pretty lavender with blue stoeches bits, a cute but neglected looking leontopodium edelweis, and a lobelia cardinal is (well it was only £1.39)!

BIG hugs and good wishes to PUNKDOC! Just remember the medical bible says Pimms all the way, patients and professionals alike! Never mind the 'responsible' bit just work on the enjoyment bit!
