Stacey, I read about the new Wild Swan variety few months back.  It sounds interesting.  Will check it out again.

Congratulations to Busy Lizzie

What's the star in your garden right now

Lovely colour bizzeB. Thanks for sharing that  

Want to plant a white hydrangea but the "perfect" spot is not yet defined for it.  Been good summer for hydrangeas....I have only one pink but it's not in BizzieB's class.  It's in a dry spot amd been there for a few years.  It's time is up  ( ruthless  me)

Morning folks. Very warm but cloudy.

And Bekkie for horse poo 

Stacey, I think the whites together ( if same varieties) and blue agapanthus together......?  Too contrived ....like bookends....if a white each sde??  Whatever you do there it will look good I'm sure 

Getting to that point of the year when I "tinker".  Even though something may look good a little voice says "move it". ,I will resist that little voice this summer 

Kmew Germany would win. Think Germany will dominate world and European trophies now 

 

 

Agastache Black Adder

I take cuttings as early as possible.  they don't like being divided and are slow to make growth early.  Bit tricky.  

I grow black adder, sunset, Summer sky, raspberry summer, kolibri, blue boa, summer glow, summer love, summer fiesta, heatwave and tangerine dreams. Love em all. All upright and some are tall

They are difficult to overwinter...dig them up to overwinter in the GH and they are likely to die.  They hate winter wet.  Not easy. Still learning how to understand them

No idea what the mystery plant is.  Guesstimate is that it's an annual 

Got nice group of red echinaceas that I noticed this evening are delightfully honey scented.  I'll take a photo so you can all smell them 

No such thing as a bargain!

Oh yes,  always a bargain to be had.  But, not from T & M.  

Alstromerias always best bought as named plants....those tiny roots are very hit n miss.

Colin, why not try for new plamts?  Newer and more prolific varieties around now.  Get  plenty of goodness in the hole first, keep well watered and weed free 

When can I prune out of control rose bush?

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 18:42

Hiya Boristhebold, 

I,would do it now, forgo any flowers for this year and prune as hard as you need to.  Prepare for great flowering next year and an attractive bushy plant for few weeks time
