Creating a wildflower garden



  • Thanks nutcutlet - I'll let you know if and when I get a response from

    GWF help team - nothing so far!

    I'm enjoying the wild carrots in my meadow this morning. They're all nodding approval at the rain. 

  • Hi Jim,

    Yes the rain was very good yesterday - we needed it badly, everything was

    going brown!  Have you checked out the wildflower pictures I've posted under

    growingflowersforbees?  Took a long time for me to figure out how to do it,

    but now I've done it they will be no stopping me!

  • Hi Nutcutlet,

    Going back to your lovely photo of the oenothere rosea above, is this a wild

    flower too? It's really beautiful and I'd like to grow it, so please could you

    let me know - is it a perennial or an annual?

    Hi WaF, I think it coms from south america anf it may be an annual. I's always there, growing in my drive and it over winters OK. I should think there are seeds. Want some?

    PS WaF, I PMd you

  • Hi Nutcutlet - Yes please!   I'd love some!  Thanks for the PM - Just

    about to read it!

  • Hi Everyone!

    Just to say, I'm not using this nickname anymore as from now, as I don't have a

    toolbar! Instead I am using a new nickname "flowersforbees", so hope

    to meet you on there instead!
