I love to Potter around. I love colours & shapes. My garden is my happy place, I plant for smells, sight and to attract wildlife x

#lasthurrah not going to bother with these next year, as much as I love the colour, waiting for one flower just isn't worth it 😂

This is one of those that takes a couple of years to establish. It should start producing more eventually...

I got five plants and they are between 3-5 feet but not a single flower yet🤷. Monty did say he had similar problems this year, so we are not alone😂
