Hi all.

Hope you are having a good BH., fairy excepted. { Not that I hope you are having a bad day fairy! }

Was looking forward to a nice day, with OH not having to work. She offered to cut the lawns, as I have a sore back again.

Unfortunately, just as she started, a wasp stung her on the face. She has spent rest of the day lying on the sofa, with a very swollen face, feeling sorry for herself.

Good to hear your news DD.

Time for a drink I think.

I assumed Canna, that was certainly what my advice was for.

I am feeling very persecuted

To be really controversial, and probably start a riot, can I say that I don't get BREXIT?

I am a little surprised at your view on Agastache from seeds Verdun. There are many varieties available, and most flower very quickly from seed.

Bishops Children are all single flowered.

Try Rose Cottage plants for Dahlia tubers, I have always found them excellent.

I am not quite sure what you are getting at Verdun [ I have probably missed something ] I think that we all like these plants, but for many of us, we cannot keep them alive over winter.

Therefore as you say, either take cuttings, or grow types that can be raised each year from seed, which is what I do.

Leave in pots for now.

Treat like Dahlia tubers, over Winter. I put mine in pots and keep slightly moist, although many would say not to do this.

You can divide the plants in Spring, when they are starting to grow, just ensure each division is showing a growing point. I start mine indoors in February.

I don't know where you are Peanuts, but I find Agastache of all species, rarely come through the winter here.

I tend to grow each year from seed, they flower really quickly.

Thank you
