It stands out doesn't it, verry nice :~))
PS. have you ever noticed how they link the adverts (over there on the right) with the topic on the page ?

Yes - clever stuff, isn't it! I wish they'd name them properly, though.

19 Jul, 2009

 

Is that the common name then? Coneflower. You can understand why it's called that though?

19 Jul, 2009

 

Yes, it is - but there are lots of different colours and shapes, as well - they call them ALL 'Coneflowers' How do you find the one you want?

Now we're getting back into that whole Latin name thingy..........Lol :~))

I very nearly bought one in a garden centre it was half the price on these ads & I reckon I could have got 3 plants from it, if only I had more space

I love these :)

Dead right, it's a beauty.

Ian - I wasn't in the slightest upset! AND you're right! The latin names would help, as long as they add the next bit - the plant's ID name as well!

It's a bit like just putting 'Rose'....errrr....which sort - climbing, bush, shrub, patio, and what's its name? BAD advertising to me!

Phew...I thought I had. :~((
I do see how important it is (the Latin name) I just know I'm going to find myself in a GC with a list of plants and not be able to say one of them :~((

Growing from seed is not that difficult either.

20 Jul, 2009

 

Ian - just write any that you want down, and show them! LOL.
Or point?

I bet you could have a go at pronouncing the names, anyway.

20 Jul, 2009

 

Hmmmm not sure about that one :~)(

20 Jul, 2009

 

Say after me - ECK - IN - AY - SHA....there you are! Easy-peasy!

21 Jul, 2009

I would have pronounced it ECH -IN -AK -EAR ......Like you said I think I'll just point Lol
