Gralew that would be fun!! Wildrose I do like yellow and mauve together in the garden......
Scottish is it the soil or the situation they do not like?

The soil DD2 - too moist! I have tried a few time, they last for a few weeks then the wilted look begins!
If/When I ever get round to doing the front garden, they may do well there - I've had gladioli bulbs survive there the last 3 years so it must be well drained enough!

I love to see blue/mauve and yellow together. They really compliment each other. I moved my Bowles Mauve last autumn and its flowering really well now. It's said they only last about 3 years so I'd better get some cuttings going this year.
