We have this one Siris! We might do away with some of the older ones after all some are well over 30 year's old, and invest in some more recent varieties.......will keep the blue because they are still who!e!!

Why get rid of older ones, are they the enormous ones? That is the reason my Sum and Substance must go this Autumn.

I just fancy some new varieties, and a lot of our older ones are slug bait!!

Are the newer ones less inviting to slugs, thicker leaves maybe?

So I understand!!

Oh great Thorney, I am gradually skribbing some black labels as I get the names sorted, for long term plants.
