hi, just bought two of these and hoping someone may have some experience with them. I looked them up and it says they are hardy, plant with tubour just showing in free draining soil.

Has anyone grown these and any tips? 

Some bits have broken off so any advice how to keep them would be great too.

thank you. x

LOVELY everyone, love looking at all your flowers.

Thanks for all your comments on germ/nigella, I'm dreading IT finishing actually! Any suggestions welcome as to what to replace them with?

Yam, I don't know what the last pic is sorry.

Hi Runny, I'm not around much these days, and it's so hard to keep up when I am.

The little yellow flower looks like an onion / tiny allium. I had them years ago, didn't like yellow at the time, they went everywhere and even today I've dug one out! 

Hi FB, lavender bed looking great, I've dug a poppy out today too.

Love the flower arrangement and also the clematis with blue on the back of the petals.

Thanks aym - but definately pull love in a mist up, it'll seed everywhere! mine were just 4/5 plants given to me last year! My favourite part of the garden this year, just not sure what to do when they've finished flowering.

thanks nanniemo, I've been looking at totally tangerine (lovely)at Harlow Carr today, but prefer Mrs bradshaw in my borders it's much brighter.

Hello, ive had a great day off (rare - no kids or OH to please!). Went to Harlow Carr. Swathes and swathes of mecanopsis (KEF and PD you must go before they finish!), absolutely fabulous. The Harlow Carr candelabra primulas are quite a show stopper as well. Wonderful alpine displays too. Fell in love with a geranium Elizabeth Ann but they didn't have it in th explana shop - had to buy Lillies, tradescantia and errr heather ... heather because it looked great under the purple Acer so I need to recreate the look ( in hind sight it was just the colour, oops not that keen on heather normally!). Would love to share photos but it just tells me the file is too big so you'll have to take a trip yourselves! Hope you are all well and enjoying your gardens. x
