It is fair to say you were not sold diseased plants....unless you think they looked a little  suspect?.....but those varieties are now prone to disease.  They are likely to be affected.  

You could contact tresco manager and imform him of the situation.  He probably doesn't know too much about plants but may discuss a solution with ??ou.

It's been a scorcher down here on St Ives Bay.  Plants are noticeably responding to the increased sunshine by growing like mad......runner beans, for example. And flowers are opening out too

Tina, I've sent you sunshine and higher temps....hope you got it ok?

Fairygirl.....isnt that fence done yet ? 

Cut my hedge last night as it was getting dark.  This morning I was relieved to see it was still looking ok.  


Violas or pansies. Which is superior?

When violas are,going over I cut them,hard back, tickle a little,fertiliser ( violas like a little tickle) around them, water and wait for them to flower again. They do so in a couple weeks or so.

At moment I have blue delphiniums, lupins, penstemons, linum, geranium, tradescantia, lithodora, dwarf phlox, all in flower.  A couple of salvIas are soon to open their buds into blue flowers as well as agastaches not far off.

Love blue flowers and the summer will provide even more
