Hey Pete, that's the way to grow veronicastrums ......fantastic   Which variety is that!  Looks like Fascination?

Yes, Amistad will root in 2 or 3 weeks and make plants 4 or 5 feet tall the following summer.  Mine overwinter well outside here but I give away these majestic plants and everyone thinks I'm a genius to produce them

Never rush about in this heat.......

Busy morn and quickly tidied and sorted plants but it's too blooming' hot.  Roasting.  Temps must be approaching 90 f in my sun baked garden.  If not, it feels like it.  

Ok, it's hot.   What we all want really. Cannot and should not moan.   Prob the summer we dream of.  

Cool down?  How?  Beach is 10 mins away so.....maybe!  Lager?  Ice creams? Duvet in the fridge?   Underpants in the freezer? .....luverly   Forecast is ......well, HOT 

Ain't this a brilliant summer ?

Bamboogie, no no staking despite being 5' or so tall.  .  Easy, tough but delicate looking.  Suddenly it's there in its quiet way.  Have a few different vsrieties including white and they flower for such a lomg time.  

Veronicastrums are such under valued plants, in my,opinion

Occasionally we need to look at something without adding other issues to it.

Of course, there is exploitation (everywhere) but love your garden simply does something womderful for somebody and this is the way to regard it.  

Reality soon hits hard when the news or other programmes are broadcast........people killed, abused and all kinds of hypocrisy amd horrors .......and that's just Eastenders!
