Lovely planting ...

29 Jun, 2022


I'm only just discovering your lovely Garden,Feverfew,no idea why I haven't come across it before,but it really is beautiful,and a lovely mingle of colours ,and textures...The Lychnis is wonderful,and mine,which was the same colour as yours, seems to have died off after many years,in my front border... Strangely enough, I have two white ones tinged with pink,that have appeared in my back garden this year ! ..

Thank you Bloomer. I’m afraid it doesn’t look anything like this now, more like a dust bath! The Nepeta which I chopped down is growing again & starting to flower, also I have two Phlox in bloom, a pink & a white. I water things whilst they are flowering, then they are just left. Areas where I normally have annuals are bare, ( they died). I water plants in pots, & have a nice display of Ivy- leaved Geraniums, best plants for this weather. The Begonias are nice too, they are on a shady wall at the end of my garden.
The fibrous rooted Begonia is still thriving. I kept it in the house on the window sill during the winter as I don’t have a greenhouse. Your new Lychnis sound very nice, the cerise ones I have are the more usual ones.
