@hkyfvr think it was my usual overwatering that killed them so only tip I have is not to do that 😂

I wrote the book on overwatering. I have to work so hard not to do it. I am good for a while then I slide back into it. Will try harder 👍🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I’m so glad I’m not the only one 😜 because a lot of my plants need watering every other day I have got into a bad habit of watering them all 🤦🏻‍♀️

Yes! You got one💖aren't they gorgeous? So So pretty, planted mine out in the flowerbed, supposedly they reseed, which I 💘 I too, have a watering problem, and have really really cut back on over watering, better to underwater than over water, I tell myself almost ever day😁 @hkyfvr @kez001uk

Yes. They are lovely. Have planted it in my garden already. I liked yours so much and I finally got to the garden centre and found it. Only a couple left. I tend to heavy handed when watering outside as well. Must be more careful. Today I did a very light water. Was pleased with myself 👍😁 @crabby58

I do the same. Then if we get rain that adds even more water. We have to remember that less is more ☺️😌 kez001uk

@hkyfvr @crabby58 it’s such a hard habit to break 🤪 but I’m trying to cut back on watering by using pot saucers more so hopefully that’ll have a positive effect and save me some work 😂
