My flowers ... (2)

The lupin called - My castle - after it finished flowering the slugs decimated it, it looked awful so moved it to the back of the border now. Got the white alliums mount everest and gladiator from lidl, 4 bulbs for £3, greed me took every single one . I wouldn't bother growing the larger alliums from seed it willl take years to get a good flowering size bulb.

Thanks  just another 5/half month to the next showing . That my pastel border I got another border in the front which is the hot border. The aquilegia are self seeded I spend more time removing them.

I be digging mine up if I was moving as well. I bought 15 for £40 I only wanted 3 Giganteum then I wanted another variety,  I ended up with a collection 3 each of giganteum - globemaster - round and purple - white giant - mount everest . I probably planted 50ish allium last November already had about 70, not an incredible amount but probably to many for my limted space.

This a pic from last year of my small front border, purple senation - gladitor - mount everest.

I bought some giant alliums and they were expensive but looking forward to them flowering.  Ideally they would be better in the ground, personally I would sink them in the ground when the weather gets better.

I think a east facing wall would be best for now good sun light but sheltered from to much rain so they don't rot.  

I like christophii mass flowers and the dead flower heads last for ages. I have far to many alliums  I barred myself from buying anymore the year 

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3
