Here's a pretty pink for a sunny morning GT'ers ☕️ Some say old fashioned but experts are trying to make them 'fashionable' again. Two things I find funny...plants are plants, I don't agree with any of them being in or out of fashion and since this one is new the name may not help in the fashion stakes! 😂 Anyways, I'm off to the Big Smoke, so have a beautiful day in your gardens 😊🌷🌱🌸

I like to think that I like plants for themselves rather than for if they are the current fashion or not. However, for some reason I get really annoyed when something I like becomes fashionable. Hopefully the 'experts' fail at making old pinks fashionable, I've just bought several!

Well said! If you like it buy it. Give it a go. I grow lots of pinks in pots on my Brighton balcony. Hopefully I'll soon have some flowers to photograph for GT. Wish me luck!
