    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!

    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.

    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

    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....

  • Lupin 1Lupin 1 Posts: 8,916

    Steve they would prob do as well in the packet image

    Steves just reminded me I must have planted up to 50 Lucifer Red Hot Pokers (kniphofia) last autumn.. I wanted them to go along the bases of the south facing dry stone walls both front and rear..


    Dont think I have seen any sign of them whatsoever.. Probably got sold 50 squashed shallots.
