What a nice thing to say Zoomer Sorry to hear your first lot of seedlings died but I'm sure your others will catch up in no time.

 Mostly annuals for containers and gap fillers, a few perennials

 Some outside stuff, all except the Malva sent by forum members on the seed swap 


Garden Pictures 2015

Great pics as always guys Intriguing pathways in Berghills garden makes me want to follow them and beautiful geums from David.

Wish I had something to share but my garden is still in the daffs-tulips stage and everything has been taking a battering since the weather turned 

Never mind - I did moan about wanting rain

I like sparkling burgundy...I've got some unimpressive whiteish ones. Moving them this year to see if I like them any better

Eucomis perhaps?

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 02/05/2015 at 17:07

Had a moderately productive day before weather became too gloomy...had two large pots arrive this week for the front garden and transpotted a kalmia latifolia and a hydrangea I rescued the other year.

Potted on loads of seedlings: cosmos, amberboas, nemophila, rudbeckias, salvias and snaps.

Also dug in a potted rhododendron and an azalea assisted by a robin and an androgynous blackbird.

Good stuff

Plant IDs please

Could 1 be campanula persicifolia and 3 everlasting pea?

I think I'll try that on mine too, although mine is much smaller but also leggy. I'm persevering with it for sentimental reasons so worth a go...

ID please

 I'm not sure if the leaves are too soft for a lobelia, they are covered in a light hair... Although I would be happy if it was one.

I'm trying to remember where I first saw it in the hope it'll jog my memory

Thanks for your help
