what did I buy?

Posted: 03/06/2013 at 20:38

I once bought three heleniums although one looked slightly different to the others.

It didn't grow much that year and looked completely different from the other two by the end of the summer although it was happy where I planted it.

The following year, it gained vigour and eventually flowered as one of the lesser known varieties (name escapes me) and I wished all three had been alike as the regular heleniums were not that special in my garden situation.

It's not really judgement...it's collective appreciation

Deano, your veg area is really delightful and I can see how much work you've put into its design, build and tending. My veg plot is not even half as nice

Gardenfantic, every year get's better at your place  I can see how its maturing and how on earth do you keep those lawn edges so perfect? 

Busy-Lizzie, as always, your garden makes me wish I lived in France...oh wait..I wish I did before then. I will retire there one day...

Keep up the great postings on this thread everyone...I'm loving them all! xx

I've only seen one this year so far (in Kent) and that was sitting on my ceanothus!

I hope I haven't tempted fate, but I do try to remember to check my lilies every time I'm in the garden, I have a pretty beady eye.
