Disappointing plants

Posted: 06/08/2016 at 09:33

i don't think I've ever cultivated anything properly

but the 2 ladybird mentions struggle here until they die. I think monarda needs more moisture in the soil.

If I look in my database of plants/seeds grown there's a lot that have dropped out of sight.

Was that one of the variegated ones, 'Flamingo' or something? Lack of water and hot sun is the usual summer problem for those. 

Will this plant reflower ?

I don't know,  agree with Verdun, not veronicastrum. A pic that shows the shape of the flowers could help. What colour were they?

But whatever it is I think it's too late for a second flowering now.

You're mixing with the wrong sort of people B3. It slips into conversation easily here. 

OH manages to slot in gibberellins occasionally, that's one of his favourites

I don't think it's Phlomis russelliana, they have a very grey rough look to them and the manner of growth looks wrong. How long has it taken to reach that size?

I can take a photo tomorrow so you can compare

High mountains B3 

But I do have a woodland garden so perhaps that's to blame
