If they're growing well and forming new shoots then a gentle pinching is worth while

Had a parcel today from Grasslands.  Reasonably priced, helenium in flower st 4' plus,  an actea black negligee,  perfectly packed and delivered as promised....3 days I think. With carriage still cheaper than local GC ....but would not have got these vsrieties there 

So, grasslands ....another good guy

That's good news Steve....that depression won't bother us 

Bit windy today but very warm, sunny and fantastic 

Had a plant parcel today.....helenium and another actea.......so will be adding this supplier to the good guys thread. Height of helenium about 4 ' with plenty of  flowers but both plants ...3 litre pots..... will make a first class impact  next year

Nut is right, I think.  Griffithi  does seem to be a tad more tender but the flowers are brighter blue and the leaves less harsh.  

Wilmottianum does have nice autumn foliage too

Morning everyone   Warm and sunny again here ....3 degrees Fairy?  My fridge is higher than that.  However, I guess you get those wonderful autumn colours that are not part of the Cornwall  coastal scene so swings and roundabouts 

Dove, feel for you.  Certainly are in the wars.  Hope things improve fast. 

Great weather for so lomg now but I have a feeling I saw a huge low pressure system coming our way

That's fine Carol.     can also layer osteospermums.   Slightly cut the under side of a stem and push into the soil. ,peg or cover with small stone.  This is ideal method during spring and summer
