This is about 4ft. so isn't getting knocked around in the high wind today! Lost the seed packet so can't name the variety.

Wow - that's gorgeous!

Thanks Sheilar ... I'm not keen on the giant ones but this is quite cute ... : o ))

It's got so many petals on it, I think that makes it more attractive than the usual ones.

Wow - what a stunner!

Thanks Paul ... I'm trying really hard to remember the name of it ... could take me a long time though . . . . .

Thanks Val, still can't name the variety ... : o ((

Carole, this is in a West facing border, so it gets the sun(when it's not raining) from late morning onwards and, for some reason, the slugs don't seem to like that border. Hooray! : o )

Shirley, cheeky but what, if you have any spare seeds when it's finished can I have some please, my daughter always has sun flowers at my grandsons grave, these would be lovely to plant under his tree,

18 Jul, 2011

 

Of course you can have some, Val, but I'll have to write a reminder out as no good relying on my memory . . . . .

18 Jul, 2011

 

thank you so much, that's really good of you,

18 Jul, 2011

 

Reminder has been noted ... : o ))

18 Jul, 2011

 

thanks, xx

18 Jul, 2011

 

how do you leave reminders on here Shirley

18 Jul, 2011

 

Easy-peasy Val ... go to the Garden part on your home page ... click on a plant you wish to save seed/take cuttings/prune etc. ... you'll see 'Add reminder / Add photo / Edit' ... click on 'Add reminder' and you then type in the details of your task to be done and choose a date for it. Does that make sense at all?

18 Jul, 2011

 

thanks, I will try it out,

18 Jul, 2011

 

Oh, forgot to say that when the reminder is due, you get an e-mail from 'the boys' so there's no forgetting .. . . .

Thanks Holly, thanks Carol ... I'm going mad here as I can't think of it's name ... no doubt I'll remember it in the middle of the night . . . . .

18 Jul, 2011

18 Jul, 2011

19 Jul, 2011

 

Thanks Sandra ... I spotted another one in bud today ... perhaps the more I see of them the more likely I'll be to remember it's name ... lol! : o )) ☼ ☼ ☼

19 Jul, 2011
