Lovely pictures everyone here's a few taken today.  Thought I would stick with the rose theme.

 Think the above are called Silver Jubilee but not sure.

 No idea what this rose is called.

This is the first year I have ever attempted to grow anything from seed since I grew mustard and cress at school.  I thought I'd share my excitement.

 Ammi Majus

 Petunia F1 Daddy

 Cosmos Daydream

 Lupin Gallery Dwarf Mixed

 Lysimachia Beaujolais

 Lobelia Blue Cascade

 Eagle Sweet Peas 'Chelsea Collection'

And there are still loads to come into flower.

Fantasy garden

In my walled garden I would like

Shrubs and Trees that grow to exactly the size I want and flower at exactly the time I want.

Oh and can I have a garden that looks after itself when I'm on holiday please (including a lawn that doesn't grow until I get back).

Welcome Jinxygg, Nikki B and Thomzo.  Ive been using the site for just over a year and I've learned so much from some very friendly individuals.  Ask your questions and people will do their best to answer.

No idea what the red one is (it's a colour I don't go for).  It is odd isn't it the way the red is the stronger.  I bought a Stratheden this year, that's how I know its yellow.  Ooh just a thought isn't Mrs Bradshaw a red.  I think you could be right that somehow there are two plants in one pot.

Evening all, Congratulations Lily, how exciting, have to say being a Nanna is the best thing in the world.

Good Luck for tomorrow WW.

Have been really busy in the garden today, out there from 10 - 6.  Got lots done, planted the purchases from yesterday and cut back/tidied loads of plants.  We're supposed to get rain tonight so only watered the baskets, new plantings and pots.  Hope the forecast is right as the whole garden needs a good soak.
