@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom Thank you Elaine. It's flowering like mad this year. They've got some smaller ones at the local GC and I feel closer to getting another 😊😊💜💜💙💙

It's been nice today but I've been doing a taxi service, taking my mum to the dentist and mum in law to the doctors! 😄😄 @midnightgardener

@lilybee You've been a good Samaritan then. I'm glad it's been nice there for you. I just hope it picks up here soon 😊😊

Why not get one and put it in a hanging basket like I’ve done...

I was quite amazed when I saw this close up. It's choc full of lovely pretty purple flowers. I'm sure it's never looked as good as this before. I love it 😊😊💜💜

Please help me identify this plant. It's got a lot of trailing foliage and I thought just one flower on it. Looking closely I'm pretty sure there's another one in bud! #plantid

@Keely @flof1952 Thank you both. I think I need to feed it as I've just seen other gardeners' plants and they've got more flowers than mine 😯I must have more flowers but it's coming along. What to feed it with?😊😊

Try some tomato feed if it's already flowering will help others come on 😄

..keep it in check Christine because it can become invasive... super ground cover and super coloured blue flowers

@ukjohnny It wasn't doing very much in garden soil so I potted it. It's trailing so that it somehow didn't look right on flat ground 😊😊
