When the sun is shining and the sky is blue there is only one place you will find me.....in the garden. I have always had a great love for plants 😊

My old faithful comes back and brightens my life every spring. I think 🤔 it’s such and underrated plant.

@alan1111 oh no that’s such a shame. As it’s still early I reckon it’ll come back quite quickly. How much have you cut it back by?

Unfortunately Christine I had to cut it back to a couple of inches

@alan1111 I reckon it’ll come back quite quickly, everything is still coming to life and not even out yet so with a bit of sun, heat and water and a good dose of feed and it’ll perk right up again. 😊👍🏼🙏🏼

I'm not too worried Christine I usually cut it back when it's finished flowing to get a second flush later on in the summer

There is more foliage than flowers this year. A good display though.

An amazing display! I think it’s brilliant how they go from nothing to this in such a short space of time.

Never seen so many flowers on one stem. It certainly didn't mind being moved. 😊👍🏼

@richard.spicer.7906 they are one of my favourite Spring surprises. They burst out of the ground with such speed and then put on a grand show. They increase in size every year, not taking over, just becoming more impressive. 😊👍🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

@juliesgarden you won't be disappointed. They are stunning. I get excited when I see their little pink noses poking through the soil. Then they erupt like a volcano and within no time at all are putting on a fabulous show.

Sounds wonderful! I won't be too disappointed if it doesn't do much this year as I buy all my plants like long term investments for the garden 😂 - would rather they establish there roots well first and then it will flourish later.

I have 2 of these in my garden now.. The dog dug up the first one and I managed to salvage about an inch of root.. I planted it not thinking it would take and it's back looking beautiful again.. One of my favourite plants ☺️

@IckleAyley they're very forgiving plants. Mine was in full swing of coming through and then I moved it. It didn't flinch at all and is happy in its new position. It might even get moved again. 😊👍🏼
