    A herbaceous clematis whose name I have forgotten but was a heracleifolia and had a fantastic scent. I don't think it will appear nowimage

    My hollyhocks . . . they haven't made an appearance this year . . . but then they have to battle through quite a few plants to make a show!

    My Cycad (Jap. sago palm )..........left in the greenhouse too long resulting in  the flush of new fronds  - about 15 this time - being too soft and not developing fully.  As it only puts out new fronds annually, that's my lot til 2015image 

    Can't moan too much I suppose as several offsets are now rooted and putting up a frond eachimage

    Just the stupid echinaceas again. They've got until autumn when I'm shuffling the front garden around to overwhelm me or they're gone.image

    KEF, I am surprised you did not mention your Meconopsis!

    My Lupins have been dreadful, too lazy to do night time slug patrols. I am hopeful for my tree lupins for next year though. Seed raised this year, and already 2 foot tall.

    I planted a few herbaceous perrenial bulbs, corms etc in the spring.  The gladioli have appeared but there's no sign of dahlias or red-hot pokers.  Still, the nasturtiums will cover the gaps...

    Eremurus, my fault for not asking advice early enough and them being greedy on space. Watch this space next year though!

    They actually have got plenty of leaves Pdoc, just no flowers. Bronze medal for those. I have a candidate for silver will post another day, but up to now my Gold medal is for the lilies image

    Don't think an area of bare soil where Ladybird poppies were sown deserves any merit at all. image

    My ladybird poppies haven't grown either.  Maybe I should try taking them out of the packet....
