For me our garden is a little oasis of calm and happiness. I just love being in it, pottering about.

When buying a new plant for the garden I now tend to buy just one and see how it gets on. This Perovskia was planted earlier in the year and is very much at home. That makes me happy too because I know if I buy (or propagate) more, they'll do well.

I have this one too, although it seems to be taking a while to settle in.

Hi @richard.spicer.7906 I'll try to help if I can; what sort of soil is your Perovskia in?

Hello 🙋🏽‍♂️, I currently have mine in full sun, but quite dry soil. It's in what I call my 'summer baking' bed but I'm thinking perhaps it's too much for this one. Fortunately it looks healthy but it's just so small - you would think I bought it this month rather than 15months ago. I expected it to fill out by now 🤔

It sounds like it's in similar conditions to the one I have. You have had yours a little longer than I've had mine though. Did you prune it in May at all?
