Picked a load of beans and tomatoes again.    

Moved a large Salvia Embers Wish....wouldn't recommend this on the forum but I do such all the time and it will be fine.

Cornwall gardens

Devon?  Devon

There are dozens of gardens in Cornwall JulieH.  Just wrote out a long list but my post disappeared! 

Go to Gardens in Cornwall and you will be spoilt for choice.  

Lots of nurseries dotted about too ...just keep your eyes pealed.  For some gems visit Croft Common Nursery at the Lizard.  Several estates with gardens to visit too.  

More great gardens down here  than anywhere else 

What is your weather like?

A patens variety PP.  nice.  Remember it is likely to be tender where you are so treat like a dahlia to over wimter.

snap was geum Totally Tangerine that encouraged me more to orange. 

What you like Fairy?  Not liking blue?    Keep forgetting you are in a colder darker place and blue does shine in sun.  Meconopsis Baleyii??
