Very curious

There are of course yellow Foxgloves, and there are Foxgloves, where the flower tube is split into petals, so maybe that is it.

It's my birthday

Happy birthday Yvie, what better place to spend it than Cornwall.

Morning all.

Cold and miserable here and I am full of viruses.

Think it will be a day on the sofa, watching movies.

On a good note, my Himalayan Poppies have started flowering.

Have a good day everyone.

Love Port Isaac Yvie, had many lovely meals there and sitting on the balcony of the Golden Lion, gives a lovely view over the harbour.

If you are feeling flush, No. 6 in Padstow is a lovely restaurant.

Morning all.

Sunny here, although have not yet ventured out, so don't know whether warm or not.

Have a good day.

Evening all.

Quiet days pottering, nursing slight hangover.

Several Meconopsis now got buds, but none ready to flower.

WW, I go back far enough to have seen Dave Grohl drumming with Nirvana.

Have a lovely evening all, I need to get on and cook tea, OH applying for jobs, as her current one ends in July.

Chelsea Chop

I think that it is important to remember when particular plants flower in your area, as the Chelsea chop will delay this by a few weeks. Here in my slightly shady Sheffield garden, a lot of plants would not flower at all, if chopped.

Newman and Redford, almost enough to turn me off the Straight and narrow!

Where did you go in Arrochar Fg?

I think the Cobbler is a great hill, used to stay on Loch Fynne and often walked in Arrochar.

pot bound lupin

I think Obelixx's comments are key. It is difficult to wet the roots of a very pot bound plant and it will struggle without moist roots.

Also  agree with Verdun, de-stress the plant, by removing the flower.
