Mystery plant growing among strawberries

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 19:43

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!

Brilliant job and brilliant idea.  It looks fabulous!

What is this plant

That's enormous.  Never seen one before so very interesting to see and also of course to get an id.

Maybe they will turn out like these!  (Not mine by the way).

Hi Welshonion.  What I read suggested not to start the corms off until autumn or winter.  I went ahead and put a couple in small pots and am pleased that one at least has 'sprouted'. 


White Pelargoniums in pot

LOL! Fairygirl.  I haven't heard the description 'footering' since mum passed away.  Love it.   Yes, they do look great when they're 'placed' and so reliable.  I like the sound of 'Lord Bute'.  I think they always look stunning in early evening when the sun starts to lower.  Such strong colour.

Verdun - it WAS a sunny day.  I'll see what happens with them next as it looks as if the whole pot are behaving the same way.  I'll see how it goes and then maybe chop the stems and see if the next growth comes up as normal.

Thank you.


Growing Roses

Everyone has such lovely roses.  Rose heaven!

Looks like I'm going to have the usual unsuccessful start to the year with what's left of mine.  Thought I had blasted off most of the greenfly the last few weeks but the few buds coming up are all pretty much like this so far (see pic).

Lovely pink shades all of them. And I was going to ask about the Pink Fizz as well but pieris beat me to it.  It's gorgeous.
