@janric - Good morning Jan! I agree! This is my final bloom hanging on! It's been a fantastic plant considering the state it was in when I got it from the poorly plant section at Homebase! 😀

Good evening all! What a busy day! Been virtually tied to the computer all day working but managed to get out for a few minutes at lunchtime and noticed that my rescued #scabious is flowering yet again! Got to love a poorly plant section at the GC! 😀

I love finding sickly plants in that area of the GC and bringing them back from the dead! We know it now as the 'plant hospital' 😂🚑🤕🤒👍🏻

This is something I must look at. I struggle with healthy plants never mind sickly ones, but I love the idea, and getting cheap plants and bringing them back to their very best must be so rewarding, 😊😊😊

It's fab Jane @pelly and you get some real bargains, a lit of the time the plants just need a good dead heading or a prune and they are fine 👍🏻👍🏻

@pelly some also just need a good soak from base of plant overnight and potting on you will get so much pleasure bringing it back to life 👌

Good afternoon everyone! I'm pleased to report that the wind damaged #scabious I purchased a few weeks ago has started to flower again after it underwent some rather drastic surgery! 😀
