Posted: 25/04/2015 at 13:58

Nepeta is such a good value plant though......out flowers lavendar without the fickleness.  A plant requiring minimal attention or feeding

Iloveapplepuff ,  I think you are over worrying this but a picture will help to ID both the plant and situation.

Prize?  What prize?  Surely I Should have won that? 

I ordered Tawney King Dove?  Wanted Wrexham Gold but not in stock right now.  

Divided lobelia hadspen purple this morning.  Lovely plant.  Should set off helenium double trouble behind. My divided viola plants 

Very mild here but dampish at times.

Got to say I thought Monty pronounced it nip hofia.  He emphasised the word NIP.  Anyway, he is persuasive or has something about him......I have ordered couple of pokers despite not ever really liking them.  Prob setting is everything so I've already established a spot to,disguise the foliage but see those late  summer pokers

Use ericaceous john Innes.  I think it's the lime in your soil.  I don't grow vulgaris because, although my soil is neutral, it's too alkaline for them.  Carneas thrive here ...they don't mind lime.

i wouldn't add perlite either

Could hide it between Agastache black adder, Buddleia buzz ivory to one side, taxus coppershine in front and pittosporum Irene Patterson on other side.  The foliage would not be seen but flowers would be.

Morning Fiona . Warm welcome

I remember you asking about it Dove.  It's the foliage I don't like...too coarse
