@jeatacake here’s hoping! Might bring me out too 🤣 so much to do outside but the weather changes so much that it never gets done 🙈

I know exactly what you mean but at least I got one green bin filled with unruly buddleia cuttings the other day. I must do the rest ASAP as there's only 2 more green bin collections left until next March here!

@hkyfvr thank you Diane ☺️ Each time I see this variety it looks a different colour. Some are this light and some almost red. I wonder if planting conditions dictate the shade they are 🤔

hkyfvr

That is possible. I looked at mine tonight and the newer blooms are light pink and the older blooms are much darker. I forgot that mine do darken down. 🤔🤷‍♀️ @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I’ll have to keep an eye on mine. Would like it to get darker 😋

It is really pretty with the darker pink. My other sedum which is just opening is a pale pink so it is a nice contrast 💗🌸

I sure do. Everything is pretty in pink to me. I am enjoying other colours a lot more than I used to. Even oranges and yellows which were never my faves. Still pink is my top choice in just about everything 👍💗🌸💖💕😊 @kez001uk

@midnightgardener thanks Chris 😀 it’s in a fairly big pot now and is doing so much better for it. I think it was @pelly who wrote about Chelsea chopping them to help stop the flop 🤪🤣🤣

Take a closeup of the flowers. I have a few autumn joy and many others do too so maybe we can determine if yours is one! In any case, it's very pretty and blooming beautifully 💞

@gjones I’ll post one tomorrow and hopefully can work it out 😜 half of it is flowering nicely, half had to be cut back after a pigeon decided to sit on it and crush it 🤣

Yes Kerry, leaves look sad and some of the flower heads have started to form but then seem to have died.

2w
comment
kez001uk

@lilybee I was reading online it could be too much water. Despite the heat we’ve had it was a wet winter so maybe that’s stressed the plant. I hope it will recover 🤞🏻
