Hi Folks, success on the Agastache front, I believe that photo 2 is Agastache and I have a second one sprouting with the same strong minty aniseed smell.  2 out of 3 aint bad so they say.

hi Phil, I have overwintered osteospermum in the greenhouse as I liked the colour.  As to gazania, don't like them so have never bought them and have no idea what Arizona blanket flower is.  I'm sure someone more knowledgable will be along soon.

Ive planted some too a few weeks ago, mine have been outside in a pot so I don't expect I'll get much joy from them.  If they need that much tlc then they are not for me so I'll just put it down to experience.  Oh mine went in john innes no 2.

Good News.  I have just spoken to Keith at Hart Canna and he has said that I should be seeing growth on Shenandoah by now.  He has offered to bring a growing one to the Malvern show on Saturday so that I can collect it.  10 out of 10 for them.

Morning all,

Nice and calm hre with plenty of sunshine.  The garden has survived the worst of the weather (in fact still have blossom on the cherry tree, think it must be stuck on there with superglue).

Went to vote earlier and did some shopping for mum before taking her washing round and meeting with the social worker for her annual appraisal. 

Have already done a little gardening, planted three new geraniums, Samabor, Phaeum Raven and Plenum Caeruleum.  Lots of new shoots on them so hopefully they will do well.

Glad your family are ok Lily.

Having a fairly relaxing afternoon as I'm off to Firstborns tomorrow as I am on Nanna duty.  Going to the Malvern show on Saturday and then Nanna duty all next week as the other Nanna is on holiday for a week.  I'll probably need bed rest the week after.

Well, I looked at the canna in the pot and there are no shoots at all.  It is firm though and doesn't look as if anything is wrong with it.  Should I 'do a Vernon' and call them up and complain or wait awhile?
