Hi Kasy ...
... thanks ... yes... easy to run out of space !
... tomatoes invading ? ...
... at least you can eat the evidence ;o) Lol.

oh, yes... as soon as they will be ready I will do that, lol. The scent of flowering lilies brough plenty of insects to my little garden - so hoping to have plenty of evidence to deal with;-)

Mine has been lovely,Terra..it opened up fully,and is just turning brown now..I never expected it to grow so much in a short time ..I am definitely going to have some more next year..quite fancy a white one..will have to check some varieties,as I want one as tall..the 'Fanal' ones I have are shorter than this..

13 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Sfmr and Bloomer ...
Yes, this type of Astilbe is very rewarding to grow.
A white one would be good... I wonder which variety would be best...

13 Nov, 2011

 

I'm sure a GoYer will be able to recommend one Terra..:o)
