what's still flowering in your garden?

Posted: 02/11/2013 at 20:25

No mrs garden.

Its a lilac and white flowered salvia. ...just a variety of salvia.  For me its pretty hardy.  You are right though...leucanthemums are daisy plants.  I grow a particularly lovely variety called Broadway Lights ....not now in flower though.

HELLO FORKERS!

Salvia Amistad still in full flower and has been since May.  Miscanthus, dahlias, some agastaches, cannas, osteospermums, anemone wild swan, honeysuckles, jasmine, coreopsis, penstemons, dianthus, some heleniums, echinaceas, Heucheras, a couple of geraniums......Elke, looking superb, and Orion.......aster frikartii monch, two varieties of astrantia, argyranthemum varieties, and salvia leucanthemum. (this looks superb right now at a height of 5')

Mine actually produces edible marshmallows ....we have such a long growing season but the birds like em too   You need two varieties for pollination. .....pink one and the white one

Hiya Bob,  I grow 2 varieties of peaches but peach leaf curl is an issue so I'm interested in your resistant variety.  No leaf curl at all?  Apricots seem to get some leaf curl too in my experience.

Wallflowers

I have stocks wanting to flower....I simply pinch out, not just the flower buds but the top growth.  I want all my flowers in late winter and early spring not now.    With wallflowers I pinch out early and now. Makes for more flowerimg stems on a bushier sturdier plant.

Ryan, it just means being humble..seen to be respectful of older people's advice, comments etc. ,older people just love "nice" youngsters keen to learn them them.  No, not thick at all. Show people you want to know things, pick up useful tips from them

If the wind changes when you make a funny face you will look like that  forever.

If a bird poos on your head it brings you good luck.......
