when finalising water preparations for my pond I added pptassium of permanganate. It turns the water purple as a side product.  

I noticed my hands turned purple........almost covered my face in my efforts to be a clown.  (Not the thing now but I aped a black and white minstrel). Joke over I tried to wash my hands.  Nothing worked......scrubbing, domestic chemicals, etc. all failed to remove the purple.  Took a few days to gradually disappear.  So glad I didnt cover my face

Too many examples I could give but I've never tolerated rudeness or disrespect from anyone let alone sales people.

Hiya thomas

cut that flowering stem back to the ground or to where there might be another flower shoot on that stem.

Yes,it will flower again next is hardy and flower for a few years yet. 

Lupins are pretty easy really...just watch out for snails and slugs

that isnt the point though....rudeness like that is not acceptable

Short flowering season for my buddleja's

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 22:52

For me, buddleias have been flowering for weeks. Such a small island yet such variations but buddleias anywhere should be flwering by now.  September soon.  When do you expect them to flower folks?
