californian poppy spotting

Posted: 22/06/2014 at 00:10

 Hi Bluebaron.  These are my Californian poppies rescued from collapsing greenhouse.  I sowed them very late into pots instead of the ground so these are about 4 weeks.  I'm assuming yours should look like these.

Ha ha Mike.  Anything of mine would have to come under the 'Mistakes to avoid at all costs...' section!

Done it myself several times also Supernoodle so I'm a muppet too!

Great account of your visit and love the photos, especially the roses.  I especially like the look of the first rose pic with all those buds.   I wonder which rose it is.  The lilac one is stunning too.  Great pics.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi everybody.  Does anyone know this plant?  I loved the look of them and bought a couple.  I've yet to re-pot them from the shop pots - and will be keeping them in pots. The 'odorata' is fantastic - very sharp and fresh.  More citrus though than apple but absolutely lovely.

I did a net search to check up on growing conditions and care but couldn't find anything much in English.  The label is Dutch.

Any info. would be much appreciated folks.

Thank you.


ID please?

Daily Telegraph Article

Lovely article in the Daily Telegraphy by Sandra Lawrence entitled:  "Warley Place Garden: Edwardian ghosts in a lost paradise".

I used to have some 'Miss Willmott' plants and never pursued learning who Miss Willmott was. 

Fascinating read.

Has anyone ever visited Warley Place?

Isn't this lovely

That is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen.  Is it 'Sweetness'?


Mystery plant growing among strawberries

They look beautifully healthy!

Are these all willow herb?

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 22:43

I have phlox and penstemon which look a bit like your pics.  The reason I now have so few is because last year I thought they were willowherb when they were growing and I pulled a dozen of them out.

This year I'm pulling nothing out until I see flowers!
