@kez001uk it sounds as if you might need some mums or asters -- maybe monkshood or toadlilies -- to keep the blooms coming into fall. Jerusalem artichokes are just coming into bloom for me now, too!

These are so pretty at this time of year. I have to move mine to a back border as mine have spread and grown over three feet tall this year. I already had to cut some of it back as it was taking over the flower bed!

@gjones I saw some of your posts today and seems you grow biiiig plants! A huge one of these must look incredible 😍 this hasn’t done great until now but think it needs a pot upgrade. Maybe much bigger 😂

Mine are in the ground and they really did grow tall and wide. How big did yours get in a pot?

@gjones perhaps 8” at most 🤣 I’ve not potted it on since it was a plug plant 🙈 that’s a job I’m currently working through, potting on everything that needs it - it’s a mammoth job, hence why I’m not on here much 🤪

@jeatacake they came good in the end, just like you said they would 😛

Repotting plants is a time consuming job. I did that with my houseplants over the past few days. Glad that’s done now😊

@jeatacake thanks Jeff 😀 plenty of buds to open but the flowers look nothing like they did last year 🤔

Really? Early days though yet. Summer hasn't even started (technically).

comment
kez001uk

@jeatacake they were very open and not at all ruffled like these ones. Maybe the buds got damaged, not sure 😕

Could have been that cold weather we had one night nearly 3 weeks ago? 🤔 Hard to imagine cold weather now though!

comment
kez001uk

@jeatacake seems like months ago doesn’t it! I think maybe it was. The buds were just forming them so I bet they got a little shrivelled 🥶 thankfully it’s still pretty, in a shabby chic kinda way 😅
