I bought some in lidl. I hope they will grow. I'm worried because 20‰of the stuff I do get don't survive or are more or less dying like disease. Can't prove it so no refund #lidl

I got that huge grass too. It'll take a few years to get to 4 meters ha

We should exchange emails, then addresses, then gardens. Lol. I love harvesting seeds. Easy, allow to seed, wait till dry then ship to your friends, hint hint 😂

@jamescallifer I’m a little too enthusiastic when it comes to deadheading 😂 but trying to be better at leaving a few things to go to seed 😜

@vinny3000 I’m so glad it’s helping 😁 had no idea you were restricted in what you can do. I remember you saying earlier in the year you’d not been well, is it the same thing still giving you trouble?

A few years ago i had a bad accident Kerry and broke my back in two places . As times gone on the pain in my back my hip and legs has got a lot worse and i have mobility problems. Ive just had an operation on my knee and one on me back which will improve things a bit hopefully but ill never be fully fit. Im on a hell of a lot of medication all the time . The garden is my getaway from the pain even though im limited with what i can do most of what i do is in pot @kez001uk

That’s such a nice color. It probably looks bluer in person.😊💕

@terrimclaughlin thanks Terri 😀 it really doesn’t photograph well. The colour is much more blue in reality 💙

Here people use a mixed grass seed in the lawn. Blue fescue is one of the seeds they mix in!

@gjones oh wow, that must make one pretty lawn! Would never think to do that, great idea 😋

I love the colour and texture! I've been thinking of getting it for the past 2 years but I just don't know what I would plant it with. I find blueish and silvery green plants difficult to blend in with other plants. They really want to be thr stars of the show 😁😁

@ublaszko true, it’s definitely trying to be the focal point 😂 it’s so pretty though, you know you want one 😉😉

I keep seeing it at Xmas market and local market stalls in winter so I might end up getting on this winter. Not much else to buy at that time of year 😁

@ublaszko that’s as good a reason as any to get it 😃

@pelly it’s gorgeous isn’t it! Trying to add a bit of variety now the flowers are gone and don’t really know what I’m doing but figure you can’t go wrong with a blue grass 😂

I bought the same festuca last spring. It is very easy to propagate by dividing it. Now l have three of them. Try to combine it with blue flowers such as pansies or blue primroses

@jasabe I think the one I got has already got a natural divide so hopefully can get 2 to start me off 😋 and I have some blue violas I just bought so I’ll try those with it, thank you 😁
