Gardening on a small plot with an oak tree in one corner and trying to encourage more wildlife. Love visiting gardens and buying plants too!

Definitely late to the party this year but it survived being moved and then grew back after major slug damage so I'm surprised it came to anything! Enjoy your day 🙂

Thanks Rachel, I think I need to treat it a bit better this winter and hopefully will get more flowers next year. 🙂 @rachelbrooks

I love this salvia. This year I didn't keep them in check and they are ridiculously huge and they've all flopped over as they're so heavy laden with flowers.

I think the slugs helped me keep this one in check! 😄😄 @hooliejill72

@lilybee the slugs tried mine but the salvia won. I'll put pics up of mine, although I have already cut down the 2 massive 7ft ones as they had taken over.

I'm a bit late to the #purple party today. Don't have the label for this one - think it's Salvia Amistad - it's been flowering for months.
