Considering I move this a couple of weeks ago I'm pleased it's alive may not be to its normal standard but it's flowering ☺️

You might find it on YouTube, they tend to remove stuff after a while. It was a good insight into a much misunderstood condition while being a garden makeover show too

Coming along nicely. I got the plant spacing wrong and mine's currently suffocating the hollyhocks

@gardengimp I did the same I was supposed to have a clematis here. They do spread and my gardens small it's hard to know where to put it. I've ordered 200 alpine Poppy seeds I'm so excited 😊 Poppy's and alpine it's just like perfection 😍

Sounds good! Our gardens are very similar right down to the trampoline, lol! I had papaver miyabeanum last year in with my alpines, similar to papaver alpinum, really intricate, delicate but durable too. Not seen any more this year despite my best seed scattering efforts :/

There's time yet hopefully they will have self seeded a bit too😊 I am covered in pink Poppy's single and doubles not sure the variety from last year I'm having to thin them constantly but I haven't had alpine ones a for a few years I would have nothing but alpines of all varieties in my garden they are awesome but Poppy's make me melt 😊
