Amy, think positive, there will be no storm! I just looked at my GoY Garden page and apparently I planted a Chaters double yellow last year. Now where has that gone??!!!

That's so pretty Amy. Did you grow it from seed? We are having thunder storms as I write. One or two plants are getting a bit of a battering. I hope your Hollyhock is ok.

I grew one similar to this, (bought from a Garden C.). It lasted for 2 years. The single ones go on year after year, so just enjoy while you have it.

Thanks Kate ,no not seed Julia I bought this plant , we missed the storm luckily ..
Ff Thanks for that info , I'd better collect the seed this year do you think the seed will come back as a double or revert to single ?

I don't know Amy but I reckon you'd get a mixture, so you wouldn't know what you were going to get until they bloom. A bit like magic lollipops, suck 'em & see! I think you'd be very lucky to get one come true but fun to try.
Just thought, is it possible to take a cutting. I bet Sbg will know.

Talk about storms, we had a couple tornadoes touch down over here last night. One went that-a-way, the other went the other way. We were spared but my cosmos were flattened. As said above - enjoy them when you can. I thought I was going to Emerald City!

Ff I like the idea of magic lollipops I'll save the seed ,watch this space next year ,I'll wave my magic wand Haha ..
Paul that sounds horrific thank goodness it didn't touch down on your property , Emerald City do you originate from Ireland ?
