    Need photos.  :)
    They don't all flower at exactly the same time either. 
    It has been fiercely hot this year though, so are you sure they're getting enough water and food? Many people let their pots get dried out, and then the water they put in isn't absorbed - it runs straight through. An average pot of around 30 - 35 cm diameter would need a canful of water every day probably, especially if there's a lot of 'plant' in it.
    Terracotta or plastic pots also dry out quicker. 
    The pots have to be big enough to accommodate the plants too.   :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Sorry I haven't sent pic. Had a family emergency. I will send pic now. I water daily I'm sure on one of the pics you can see a tiny bud forming.
