Veronica's what now.

Yarrow, it's way I grow them.  Secret is to cut back individual flowered stems as they go over.  Not to let them expend too much energy in setting seed 

Veronicas are very easy to propagate too....division in autumn (well, anytime really) produces excellent plants for,following season.

Morning FORKERS.

Looks like a very nice day in prospect   blue sky and warm sunshine 

tomato leaves need to be dry to avoid blight.......blight needs damp leaves to take hold so in a GH blight should, in theory, not exist.   At least this how I understand it, as a simple Cornishman 

From kitchen window Moreheim Beauty is opening beautifully, twynings after eight alongside won't be far behind and salvia patens in front is flowering "loud and proud"

For a superb tall, narrow amd erect feature in the  garden check out veronicastrum Erica.  Delicate and classy, almost snooty

Yes, cut down those spikes.  You are likely to get more flowers later

I know Victoria.  Its my phone camera.  I wanted to show off agastaches especially but there are lots of gems there that aren't really showing well.  Maybe I need tips from camera corner folks about a decent camera.  does look hazy,,doesn't it? Got several grasses, echinaceas too there.  Want to take a pic of lucifer next to miscanthus variegatus ....hope I do it justice

Duvajones, did ??ou water a lot?  Did you put it in a large pot....maybe one too big?

Conversely, did ??ou notice if the rootball was dry?  Was it small with lots of roots squeazed in?  If you planted it out in this state it would not take in any watering.  In this case I would lift your plant gently ....gently....loosen a few roots and plunge in a bucket of water for an hour or so. Then loosen roots again just a little. Then you can plant,,and water well.
