Lovely sunny day now.
Potted up verbena homestead purple From cuttings taken few weeks back.....lovely purple blue cascading plants all summer.
Most plants are now outside including large pots of dahlias. Never seem to lose a dahlia whether outdoors or indoors.....now, that's tempting fate!
Some plants are definitely later this year....salvia patens is slower. Usually by now they are mounds of healthy foliage anxious to produce an early flower. The cold nights have held them back.
Warned local gc manager I will be down at the weekend to get my money back on a plant bought last year, viz., knautia Thunder n Lightening. No sign of life at all. Always felt it was likely to be more of an annual. Warned him because I returned a plant a few weeks back. However, he knows I,buy a lot of plants there one way or another.......for friends, etc. (I,don't pay for them I hasten to add ). Plants there have a lifetime warranty now so whilst it exists I take advantage .....they are dear enough
tempted to,plant out runner beans but cold weather is imminent apparently so might delay for a few days
