what's still flowering in your garden?

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.

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
