Annual verbenas are great little flowerers and keep going. Lovely colours and not too tall.

Good morning, off to watch cricket for the day. Hampshire on top at moment as long as not too many showers.

Keep up the good work everyone... astrantias will never let you down

Chicky, I will expect breeder's rights , payment in buns.

Nut, I have a white border, but I now put in a splash of purple or blue which definitely adds something.

My neighbours have driven loads of golfballs onto my paddock. They must have a vicious hook. Shame I don't do golf anymore.

Nut, you may get a flower this year, but it may only be one! Then 2 or 3 next year and son on.  Some form of mathematical gardening progression.

Geranium 'Rozanne'

Posted: 10/05/2014 at 09:35

Some important gardener, can't remember who, once said Rozanne was "boring" since it flowered on and on and on etc. I love it, but it does need a goodly space. I also have to support mine since they can flop over others, or the lawn edge.

The reason this particular Gerannium has such a long flowering season, so I was once told, is because a grower managed to cross an early flowerer with a later flowerer and it has kept both characteristics.

Anyway I wouldn't be without it. Haven't tried it in a basket but might be good as it would probably trail over the edges whilst keeping some bulk above it.

Trilliums... small woodland plant, where everything comes in 3s... leaves, petals etc. Pops up each spring ... a little gem. Yellows, reds and whites. Mine is white.

The grower of "baked beans" had a twinkle in his eye and said he couldn't call it anything else. I agreed. Marmelade might have been good too. Which reminds me , it's time for breakfast.

You are not doing anything wrong. Transplanting them will have given them a bit of a shock, but they are clearly OK. Just be patient. They are not the world's fastest growers and will bulk up year after year with more and more flowers as time goes on.

Good stuff, a great plant.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
