Something fishy about this Philippa 

Old fashioned plants

Never bothered by what's in fashion......hence my clothes style 

dahlias?  Used to hate them because, apart from colour, they have nothing else.  However, selected few are nice.  More fond of the simple single ones and those with dark foliage 

heathers!  I Like them.  As specimens where they can get large or en masse as I have here.  What's not to like?  Winter flowers, evergreen, coloured foliage, weed suppressing and stylish 


went through the dwarf conifer stage......still have quite a few that are maintained to be kept small.  

Plant fashion?  I grow what I like

I wonder if the corms were planted too deeply so only uppermost shoots grew.  Corms need to be almost sitting on the compost before growth starts.  My own produce masses of shoots....grow the pendulous, cascading small flowered sort but same primciples apply

Very, very jealous .  I cannot grow any of the blue poppies despite trying various methods.  For me they are monocarpic despite removing flowers in first year.  

c'est la vie
