    I bought these as plug plants a while ago and now I've lost the label. Can anyone identify them for me please?

    They look like violas molene image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

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

    Scabiosa.  Several suppliers were selling "Blue jeans" this year - I have some too.image


    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I'd say scabiosa, they have that slightly muddled arrangement of leaves in the rosette

    Oh lovely. I love scabious -although they haven't been too successful in my garden before. I have very light sandy soil.
  • Hope you do well, Molene. You look as if you are 27, like me (and most other posters on this forum, it seems). I planted quite a few scabious last year and appear to have lost the lot, so I hope you do better than me!

    Thanks G.G. and Verdun ,

    I will put some compost in the ground before planting out. Yes I agree, G.G. that most on the forum are over 27(at least) . Monty Don(in the latest Gardeners World Mag) was bewailing the fact that few young people are interested in gardening or taking up horticulture as a career.

    Sorry you lost your Scabious ,Verdun. I hope I do better this time but it may be that they are just not suitable for my garden.
