Aster alpinus 'Dark Beauty'


Aster alpinus 'Dark Beauty' (Aster alpinus 'Dark Beauty')

Bought some low growing edging plants today for my gravel seating area. Took out all the alpine strawbs and replanted them around the rhubarb before planting these beauties. :)) Much more colourful this year I hope!

I got some great things today Karen...not all of them flowering yet of course, but I am so chuffed. It's great to be able to pay attention to details now...edges I mean. Started 6 years ago with trees, slabs, gravel etc. then moved on to clems and roses, then shrubs, then pots and now I'm on to the edges! It's nice to be able to find some tiny jewels!

So.......this recent attack of budget blowing is down to patience this time, Karen?? ;)

I prefer the stress excuse...it saves those six years!!

But, I am happy for you - you have some little gems there! :))))))

It's a good job I don't have a glass-house, Karen...it would have no windows left!!!

Suzy....you are very disciplined, it was only £1.60! :)) Thanks Pauls!

Good price Karen, the one I saw was £2.45. I didn't buy really because I need to stop, if I bought one I probably would have bought 4 other plants as it was 5 for £10. Anyway, I might go back yet ;)

Oh yes, I know Suzy! I am the same x10!
