is it flowering now?!.. I have some sour grapes and they're not flowering yet. I have too many verbena in my garden border which makes it look over grown.. perhap I should cut some back?..

Hi plant pauper, yes they're VBs. They so electric right now!!! Almost glow in the dark. 


Last year I had so many butterflys on them.. this year I've not seen many at all which makes me sad!

Dilly,


The only thing that didn't survive was the clematis armandi and a sedum which wasn't in the correct spot.


I don't really regret planting anything. Although i could have made some better choices as i have a lot of grasses, it's very dense in my main border and some of my faves are struggling for space, i also have too many shrubs and not enough space for them.


This autumn i'll have to move and cut back a lot of the plants to give others some room to grow. It's my first real year of an established garden, so i now know how things grows, what size they grow to and what they look like together over the season. 


Next year will be even better!!

Hi there,


I have quite a few annuals I planted out which i bought as seedlings from SR.


I just realized that I should be pinching them! Some of them have produced some flowerheads. It is it still ok to pinch to the top growth out? ..


How far should i pinch them out?..
