With little knowledge, I'm slowly turning an acre field into a garden! This is my first gardening attempt, so there's such a lot to learn! 🐝🦋🌻

Goo for out @gjones could send you some seeds later on if you wanted to try from seed. I've a few varieties now. There's one that is a meter bush and others that die back to the ground so it depends what you want really. I personally like the bushy one!

I'm not sure the varieties that grow in the UK would be hardy here. Thanks for the offer but I think we'll try to find one here that's for our growing zone😊

comment
SylviaDavies

@Angels I seem to have two different ones, one is more ground base and as you say and spreads wide, the other is taller more like bush. Both sweet though!

Got my first flower of the year on mine! Took a photo but with the downpour, the poor thing looked slimy! 😣

You beat me to it @beckers1974 . Pity the weather has changed for the worse. We had a beautiful half term break and to be honest, I'd had to revert to watering which was a bind. That's all gone again, glad to see some rain but other areas sound as if they are having continuous downpours! ☔ ☔ ☔ ☔ ☔ ☔

To be dry for us today, so at 1.25am, I've got washings on! Don't want to waste a minute of drying time! 😂 Grass is getting cut too. Thankful that my mower cuts through wet grass like butter! Rain again on Sunday!
