A year ago I bought a rose pink Argyranthemum.


It has never stopped flowering since in the cold greenhouse.
Recently I filled the little planter it lives in with some
fresh compost, gave it a water, and it loved it.
Bless its heart, it has cheered me all winter.
Will look for some more at the garden centre, to enhance
my greenhouse all year round.
Checking in the good book I find its full name is
Chrysanthemum frutescens syn. Argyranthemum.

Diane I bought a collection of succulents last year and I also have my alpines now to give me something to care for in my greenhouses over the winter months, you are right it cheered me up as well, I hope you do find more...

Sorry. I should have put 'The Royal Horicultural Society
Gardeners' Encyclopaedia of Plants and Flowers' only it was lying on the fish tank to stop Squeak jumping up from on top of the water dispenser and bashing her head on the lid to open it to get out !
She cant figure out why I can open the lid to feed them and put the cardboard rolls in for them to chew, and she cant get it open.

Hi Diane, only joking, I knew it had to be some sort of gardening book, years ago I used to call my Readers digest encyclopaedia of garden plants my Bible, until I realized it was years out of date, I still haven't replaced it, Derek.
