Verdict....your new plants this year

Posted: 01/09/2014 at 12:43

KEF, I think it's short lived.  To keep it flowering and encourage its "perennialism" (?) Anchusa should be dead headed religiously.  A few years ago I did just that  and managed to keep it for 2 years or so.  Not sure I would dig it up now unless it's recently planted.  Anchusa can flower itself to death I think so as soon as flowers look as though they're fading nip them out.

Hiya Woody. ,yes you are spot on.  

Cant grow  everything ....want more ...even more ......colour right now but conscious of the balance too with grasses and to maintain a good ratio.  However, another helenium,or two and couple of gaillardias can be incorporated.

Anchusa is lovely KEF but I rarely manage to keep it for more than a year or two.
