Pilgrim is a beauty I regret not getting it for the pergola a couple of years ago. I went for Generous Gardener instead, it a lovely rose but it taking a while to climbing up the post.

Which Yellow Rose

Posted: 31/08/2017 at 21:57

I've wanted a yellow / golden rose for quite a while now, I am a bit of a sucker for D Austin shrub roses. I am looking a Teasing Georgia and Graham Thomas at the moment. Anyone grow either of these or recommend another rose? I am looking for a more upright growth, Ideally very good disease resistant just incase because I am replacing a old rose, I be replacing the soil and be using microfungi

Discoveries and Disappointments

Posted: 18/08/2017 at 17:46

Alliums disappointments  the foliage is ugly though, I try not to look .

My disappointments

Mirabilis flowers insignificant, hardly any scent , very vulnerable to winds.

Monarda scorpion just vanished but I still like them so got some more.  

Hemerocallis both of them stella d oro / crimson pirate refuse to flower, on the hit list  if no flowers next year.

Lupins have been a disappointment this year

Crown imperial fritillaria - didnt flower may of planted to deep 

Penstemon husker red - it ok but expected a longer flowering period.

Parrot tulips - other than flaming parrot the others haven't impressed me much

Pulmonaria blue Ensign - doesn't do much hope for better next year or else  

New discoveries 

I took a shine to Viticella clematis keep thinking where I can plant more 

Globemaster Allium I need more 

Agastache black adder 

ensete maurii

Some great pictures  

Liking all the colour Cotty especially the canna's, the  agapanthus is a real showoff 

Iamweedy - The Eucomis are stunning, is it sparkling burgundy? I am big fan of the perennial lobelia, I grow Tanna sister and Tanna similar to R-princess, the slugs haven't touched mine this year they just demolished the rudbeckia herbstone a few feet away instead  I grow Lobelia tupa aswell thats a wooper, should of put supports in it got a lean on it.

Very nice pictures as usual Busy very cottagey. What variety is the helianthus ? it very impressive 

Your petunia are doing very well as usual jonny. I like the picture with the echinops with the sunflower looking down on them. The Ricinus is quite a size, mine been disappointing this year
