variegated erysimum

just a winter bedding plant that I bought. It's very pretty. I can't grow these in my soil, but it's doing well in its container.

Brilliant colour,Is there any name on the label,I have a yellow with same variegated leaves,that is named but would need to look at label.

Mouldy, I believe they prefer alkaline soil. They always go very straggly here and don't flower well at all. Brian, I 'm afraid there was no label with this.

They don't cope with mine either!

(Mouldy's heard that one before, young Scottish. Lol)
So, Scottish, what type of soil do you have that's detrimental to this bonny wee plant?

Too bl**dy moist!!

We've got the same problem here.
The ground's too claggy & now Karen's promised Scotland a blizzard.
That'll be something to look forward to, I s'pose. Lol.

Got bumped off the net just before midnight & spent the last 3hrs trying to get back on.
Hate you o2!
Now, where were we?
Last yr...yeah, but I wasn't trying to act like a gardener back then, was I? ;-)

What's it like with you Scottish? It's cold here, windy, and showery.....due to get worse as the day goes on.

It's not too bad. Windy but sunny for the moment

13 May, 2013

 

Oh good, well, make the most of it! :)

Did you get sleet this afternoon Karen? I had just finished mowing the lawn and the heavens opened! It was bloody cold!!!!

13 May, 2013

 

Glad to say we didn't Scottish, but yes, cold.
