Just back from a pootle round the GC. Good size perennials for £2.50, hard to resist, so I didn't.
Nice to see you Edd.
It is so dark now, light box coming out today.
Weather due to be dry for another few days, so hoping to catch up on all my jobs.
Lovely comments Clari., must make all the s##t worthwhile?
Looks like Ageritima Chocolate.
You may be thinking of herb Robert, one of our native Geraniums, which does stink.
Just received some terrible news, 2 of the volunteer ambulance drivers, who used to bring casualties to us, were killed in an explosion on Friday.
When are we going to stop this barbarism.
I divide mine in Spring, when I can see the growing points for the new shoots.
G. Rozanne is as tough as old boots, you could happily divide it now and then put it back in the troughs. Next year water a bit more, and feed from time to time, they should flower fine.
Pot them up, store somewhere cool, but not too cold, and then bring into the warmth and start watering next Spring. They should not be planted out, until after the last frosts.
Aym, why have you added water retaining gel to the soil? It is not particularly useful, except in pots. Clay with added manure should retain plenty of moisture.
The pots will be fine outside, but raise them off the ground, to ensure good drainage.
Camassia are not ideal for pots as they like damp conditions.
