Alliums

It depends what you want Kay. I rarely dead head anything. I have a forest of assorted alliums. Some of the cultivars are not as huge in later generations but I prefer them like that.  The speciee, especially christophii, seed like made and are just the same.

And as an extra, there are some pink ones (name escapes me for the moment) which have been seeding gently for years, looking much the same, this year there are 3 white ones

Is this St Johns Wort?

I'd agree with that. There's nothing measurable there, you get what you get

I tell myself that every year pd. Then the lists arrive, people offer stuff on the seed swap, I save my own seed and I'm off again

I was determined to cut down. My former nursery patch, 24 x 6 ft of gravel on a membrane, has been planted up with this and that as a gravel garden. Now OH is saying 'I told you so'.

I've already sown the first seeds, I've got loads to sow, I've just had a belated germination from Lathyrus rotundifolius, there are dozens of Roscoea (thank you fidget) and arisaemas.

I think It's a terminal condition

Is this St Johns Wort?

St johns wort is a name applied to all hypericums now. It used to be more specific in previous times.

The one used medicinally is Hypericum perforatum, Perforate St John's Wort a probably native perennial plant

Regular dead-heading might prolong the flowering. Or cut right back when the first flush is over and you might get a later show

Well I'm not sure here Jedward.

Are there any other opinions?

I can't see that as a flowering cherry Logan

I've never been tempted by a plug plant.

It's the seed lists that get me every time

Seed and plant swap 2015

Hi Lyn

Mine, not sure what they all are but one is 'Spark's Variety' are late. barely in bud. I usually end up collecting seed well into the damp of autumn. I like the late ones but, being so dry here, they don't always look their best and I'd like to get some of the earlier ones going.
