It's a free website. Probably not the most,up to date technically but for me it doesn't affect the forum qualities.

Ok, there are shorter varieties of agastache.  Why not consider a couple of grasses like deschampsias ?  Flowerimg all summer, sway/billow in the wind and great foil for flowering plants.  How about Veronica then for vertical element?  Blue or white erect flowers not needing staking ??

I really enjoy this forum

Yes, woottens are first class. Ashwoods too.  Lots of others including specialist growers for heleniums, hellebores, and the like.

Dannyboy,  In the GC soon there will be lots of perennials in 9cm pots......from lupins, to delphiniums, to well, the list,is huge.  Buy them and pot  them up ASAP.  They will grow amazingly quickly in early spring.  I pot on at least twice but often 3 times to have large full size flowerimg plants for this summer.  you need to keep them growing vigorously during the potting up period.

Its now a good time to buy perennials in 3 litre pots and divide them, pot them up and grow them on.

Hiya Red

Yes source online .

I too like height in the border from perennial flowers.....I grow agastaches, veronicastrums, verbena bonariensis, delphiniums, foxgloves, verbascums, acteas, etc etc.  

Re agastaches check out Black Adder and Sangria....respectively inky blue flowers and pink flowers on erect tall (5') plants all summer long.

It's not about technical glitches Tom.  It's about friendship, knowledge, fun, support and sharing.  Sorry you're leaving Tom.  If you change your mind you will be welcome

Hi Steven

Yes excellent for veg.  Mushroom compost is ideal mix in with top soil.  Sounds perfect for carrots too.  Try to mix it all as thoroughly as possible

I guess they are expensive. Got mine at good price and well happy with them.  If they grow again next spring ....I.e. that they are truly perennial....then they will be very good value.

They will,be sterile so no seeds.  Root cuttings or division....will make that decision when I dig one up in late summer
