Am I doing something wrong?

Have a look at the chilli thread Jamie. 

Stacey is the resident chilli expert, she'll probably be around later

Not Eve Price then.

Maybe White Egret or French White. I don't know them well enough to tell the difference.

That's a good lean and will blot out anything underneath

I'd get an apple tree

It's the one without the pink buds. Is that Eve Price?

Panda, when you've made the list remember where you put it. Somewhere I have a lovely map of where I put which snowdrop. I can't find it anywhere and I can't find two of the snowdrops.


Flower I.D. anyone??

It doesn't look real does it. My knowledge of tender exotica is almost non-existent, sorry

Hi nutcutlet. Exactly the same thing has happened to me before. I've thought that my Helleborus niger just got too dry in its shady site during summer, and didn't pull through. I've never got it to establish, unlike the Oriental hybrids and H. argutifolius that are far more reliable. Helleborus lividus has been good for me too.


My garden is dry (East Anglia) but I have hopes that now it's got away H niger may survive. H. corsicus gets very big, falls over and doesn't live long. Just long enough to set seed and start the whole process again

My lividus shared the fate of yours Dove.

For the first time ever I have Helleborus niger, still alive from last year, increased in size and lots of flowers. Previously I've bought them, flowered once, never seen again.

I have a serious rust problem. If I try to grow hollyhocks they show rust on the first true leaves, even the ones with so-called rust resistance. 

I love hollyhocks

Sow them Cairnsie. All the colour and size genes will be there, it might be interesting.

are the original plants still there, aren't they perennials?
