Stupid, or what ?

I am sure none of you would do this, but then again.

Last Summer I took cuttings from 4 different Penstemons, and then potted them on in March.

I labelled each group but............ I realised yesterday, that sometime later, I moved them around the greenhouse, to fit other stuff in.

Now I have now idea which Penstemon are which.

Label every plant punkdoc, you idiot.

Snowing again.

I can't get out of the drive, as it is blocked by a sand blaster. The noise is terrible, and there is dust everywhere.

I have to get out, to buy stuff for OH's bday, and then to pick her up to up to N. Yorks.

Words have been said, but to no effect. I don't suppose the police will help.

Have a good day.

Salvias...what am i doing wrong?

Amistad is not hardy, here in Sheffield. I take cuttings, and dig up the parents, and keep them in a cold greenhouse over winter. So far so good, they are all showing new growth.

Sowing Foxgloves (Digitalis)

Usual practice for biennials is, to sow June / July, to flower the following year. I am sure sowing now, would work fine though.

ID please

It is not any Salvia that I know.

Monarda still in slumber

IMO, Monardas are one of those fickle plants. If they like you they romp away, if not, they sulk and die.

In my garden, they like a moist semi shaded position.

Dove and WW. , sorry for your loss. Glad it was peaceful, and lovely to hear the story of enduring love.

best general fertiliser to use for perennials & shrubs?

Growmore, is inorganic and unappealing to animals [ I believe ]. I use it because of the high population of foxes around here, who tend to dig around, if I use FBB.

Meconopsis Betonicifolia

Hi Stevo

They are very hardy, so as soon as this really cold spell has gone, they can go out.

They like cool, semi shaded, moist conditions.

I tend to add a fair bit of leaf mould to the planting soil.

G'day all.

Freezing, but sunny here. I think we are now getting winter, so who knows what season is next ?
