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! 🐝🦋🌻

Thanks @juliesgarden. I have a large one too that was looking superb until Hector bashed it about. It now looks like a specsaver ad! 😂😂I've taken loads of cuttings to try and make good of the situation.

Gorgeous Sylvia 😍😍 I might have to move mine as it’s probably not going to have enough room where it is 🤔

It's beautiful. I took some cuttings from my niece's garden, but they failed, I'm going to try again in the autumn Sylvia. 😊😊😊

I stuck some straight in the ground in autumn and they all took! I now have 4 but I think I killed one last week by moving it! 😠 @pelly

Morning all and thanks for your comments! Can anyone tell me whether this is a black lace? I have another cutting that has taken and that is same colour but has a feathery leaf?

Oooh yes, mine is bursting into growth too, can't wait, astonishing how much they grow in one season! Keep posting updates on this one xx

Think Lace is the mor feathery one as opposed to the sort of fuller leaved one. Xx
