When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Beautiful, one of my favourite plants, I have three and I’m trying to collect seeds from them, but I will take cuttings too 😍😍

I think I’m getting obsessed with seed collecting, I’m finding that the more difficult they are the more I want to try Jacqueline. I have some Grape Hyacinth ones in the fridge at the moment and they take ages, I’m also going to do some Agapanthus ones that will take two to three years. I just love a challenge 🙄🙄😂

This is Gaura lindheimeri (unnamed variety). I just hope it finds enough sun to be happy in my garden.

The encyclopaedia is full of how to control it. I'd love it to get so big it needed to be controlled 😊😊 @pelly

Mine has grown a lot and I've only had it since May, I think. It's been fabulous. 😊😊😊

I think yours may have inspired me Jane. Plus we saw them all over France, bobbing in the breeze, at roundabouts, traffic islands, everywhere. Fabulous plant 😍 @pelly

I planted mine last year and it was quite small. It's come back this year and its massive. I love it and it takes no looking after

I'm gonna sound like Jane @pelly now, but I'm not a fan, have a white one, damn floppy plant, always laying about sprawling over the grass 😠

I have three at the moment but luckily only one of them is a bit floppy. Put a few supports round it or move it to where other plants will give some support. @Jasonsparkes1 👍👍👍

My sedum collapsed this year too, it's being moved soon to a drier sunnier spot and see if that helps?? @awomanonabike
