I love gardening, particularly wildlife and GYO. I have an addiction when it comes to buying plants. I only wish I could spend more time indulging!

This is my #thalictrum Hewitt’s double double which I pulled in two whilst weeding in spring. Both halves have survived the heavy handed thuggery and have still flowered (although very small) 🙂 #mondaymotivation

@rbetts25 Richard what I have done, is to cut a old black plastic pot in half and then bury half of the pot in the ground around the plant. So you have an inch of the pot proud of the ground. ( I have labelled the rim too with it’s name) Then I know where it each year, as I have done the same, I fact this year I may do it with other plants. 👌 I can take a photo if this is not clear. 😉

Thanks Pauline! Yes, I’m very relieved. I find the longer I weed for the more heavy handed I become, must remember short and often! @flof1952

Incredible! So pretty!! My Meadow Rue never did flower this year. I had it in a pot and finally put it in the ground to see if it does better. I’m determined to have this English beauty in Florida! 💚😊

Morning everyone! This is the last of my #thalictrum to flower. Dainty and beautiful! It didn’t grow as high as I’d have hoped as it got a bit bullied by a Japanese anemone but I’ll remedy that next year. 💕💕

Hello Richard, I don't know this plant. Everyday we discover new plants. I like its pinkish colour. I will look it up on the ínternet to get more info about thalictrum.

This is my favourite variety of plants at the moment, I’ve found 10 different ones. They generally like sun/partial shade but most importantly don’t like to dry out. @jasabe

Morning everyone! A very misty morning here, just got soaked planting out some lettuce. However the moisture in the air is doing some amazing things with this #thalictrum and spider webs 🕸

Morning everyone! So happy to see my #thalictrum has braved this long winter. These #meadowrue were a favourite last year and I will certainly be adding to them this year!

Morning everyone! #thalictrum starting to flower. A very ethereal plant, goes nicely with scabious and I imagine verbena bonariensis! The secateurs have been deployed for the non-deadheaded scabious in the background (the 1st thing I saw in this photo)

I'm not sure how widely available it is @samwich I hadn't come across it before. I brought it from a plant fair but I think I've seen it in garden centres since. I saw it in herbaceous border, covered in bees and made it my mission to find it! 😀
