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

Well it was someone on here who inspired me to grow them too but I can’t remember who it was 🙈 I guess it wasn’t you Elaine 😂 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

That makes me feel better Joan. This one is in a pot and doing great but I also put a couple in the garden and they’ve hardly grown. I think they must be quite hungry 🤔 @joanboston

I’ve got one five feet tall that’s only had one flower so far. Lots more buds coming though Jacqueline

There are some plants that I only know about because of #GardenTags and this is one 😊Apologies but I don’t know who first posted it but it is now one of the few #annuals that I grow every year #tithonia #orange 🧡💚🧡

I first saw Monty grow these on GW and this is my second year. They are certainly a stand out plant

What a stunner Jacqueline. I take it you've been reconnected to the outside world at last? 🌺🤔

I don’t know Elaine but probably not. I think I was late getting them going. Also the seed compost I used was rubbish and they didn’t really grow at all until I potted them on 🙄 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Thanks Jane. Sadly not, we do now have a telegraph pole apparently ... but still no phone line. I’ve been out using free Wi-Fi and 4G today but have to go home now 😢😉😂 @pelly

I’d really recommend them Elaine, though are so bright and happy, though I wish I had sown them earlier. I first saw them on here but I can’t remember who posted them #tithonia @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom
