Orange is the colour

Posted: 15/07/2016 at 17:37

There are some wonderful orange geums but not sure if they are happy in damp soil, you would need to check.  I also have a great gaillardia called Tizzy (photo below).  If you looking for a wonderful orange rose take a look at Lady of Shallot.  Also there are some great Heucheras look at Heucheraholic's website.

Thanks for this info.  I had one in the garden for a couple of years but I think I have pulled it up by mistake.  I have just bought 3 more so it looks like I will have to be patient (and careful).

PP It's been a bit of a sun and shower summer so far here.  Quite good for the plants, but personally I would prefer a bit more sun and less showers.

I'd add to that list


Harts (Cannas and Lillies)


Plants for Shade


Hoylands (Agapanthus)


Wildgoose Nursery (Violas)


Whetmans (pinks)


Kelways are good for Irises too.

Morning all,  Lovely day here.  Not a good night up early with back, never mind I'm going to try and work it off today in the garden.  Hopefully drugs and a hot shower will mean I can get going and plant a few plants that have been sitting in pots for a while.  I have a couple of difficult spots and so I'm going to have a think about what to do about them while I sit in the sunshine.


Enjoy your walk GWRS.


Hope you feel better soon Pat.


RB that was a bostin Bobhowler, or should I say Bobowler


Glad to see Theresa May has a sense of humour - Boris as Foreign Secretary - hilarious.

Mine is the same Racine, I have cut back some of the non flowering shoots today.  Will wait to see what others say.

Hi Fairy,  a Bobhowler is a big moth.  Must be local slang, I wonder if RB recognises the term, she's quite local to me.  


Lovely harebell by the way.

What happened when I was away?

Think leaf miner damage tends to run in lines along the leaves rather than spot holes, but I might be wrong, I quite often am.
