Oh crikey thats amazing Bloomer!!

8 Jan, 2014

 

Hi Terra..thank you..and yes,still some signs of summer..:o)

8 Jan, 2014

 

Exactly,Karen..are you still going to have some next summer? mine were from a plant stall on our outdoor market...4 for £5.. or mix and match..great value :o)

8 Jan, 2014

 

I am amazed they are still looking good,Simbad..they are slightly sheltered against the house wall,which must be the reason..plus no significant frost yet..

8 Jan, 2014

 

A little treasure. It looks perfectly happy too!

8 Jan, 2014

 

I love these,Chris..it's the first time I have had them,but they will be a must for summer :o)

8 Jan, 2014

 

Hey Sandra...i see you have had it mild too..not just pembrokeshire...just hope it stays that way..:-)

8 Jan, 2014

 

We have been so lucky,Sandra..like you,I count my blessings..:o)

8 Jan, 2014

 

My goodness Sandra, that's amazing. Do you have a secret you could share?

8 Jan, 2014

 

That's a cheerful little plant to have outside your front door.

Bloooming lovely, Bloomer.....takes after it owner..... cheerful in the face of adversity! Keep smiling Sandra x

Very nice, with this mild wet weather there's a lot still in flower that I see when out and about.. :)

9 Jan, 2014

 

No secret,Waddy..it's just left to do it's own thing,to my surprise ! :o) x
.........
Thank you Paul..a nice trailer and gap filler with other summer plants..it's just a bit of a show off,I think :o)
........
Thanks Val,still smiling..through this darned wet weather..both me and the plant :o) and even though my Vacuum cleaner has packed up this morning !! grrrr...x
........
It's amazing how much is still in flower,Holly,and in your garden as well....Osteospernums still in flower too..x

Hi Sandra...isntnit great to have them for so long! My purple one is still okay too...:))

9 Jan, 2014

 

Hi Janey..just wonderful...I love these little toughies..I keep wondering whether to pot them up,and try to overwinter them in the Conservatory,before the frosts arrive.. what do you think ?

9 Jan, 2014

 

Thats amazing Sandra ! My white penstamon is still flowering, plus the fuschias and a ceonothis is just starting to flower ! How weird is that !

9 Jan, 2014

 

Very weird this year,Rose..I don't ever remember it being like this before..but isn't it making it seem less like winter ? We might be in for it later,but at least we are doing well so far..I haven't any Fuchsia's in flower like you,but the hardy ones still have all their foliage..the others are inside..I'm not complaining ! :o) x

Golly that has done well Sandra !

10 Jan, 2014

 

Well, whatever happens, Sandra, at least we're getting through the winter nicely ! x

10 Jan, 2014

 

I agree Rose..about time too,after the last two years ! xx

10 Jan, 2014

 

Definitely going to have bacopa this year Bloomer...I love it!

10 Jan, 2014

 

Looks like a very good plant to have. It's doing really well.

10 Jan, 2014

 

Me too,Karen..lot's of them ! already planning for the half baskets on the shed,for a start :o)

10 Jan, 2014

 

Thanks H.bird..well worth having these lovely trailers..they get nice and bushy too..mine were very small when I bought them..

10 Jan, 2014

 

What a bonus to have this in bloom now ... what are you feeding it on ... cos I want some!

15 Jan, 2014

 

It's on a diet,Shirley..not been fed since summer..or hardly watered either..still in bloom..do you think it is crying out for some TLC ?..I'm such a cruel gardener :o)

15 Jan, 2014

 

LOL Sandra! Many of my plants thrive on neglect ... they have no choice ... :o)

15 Jan, 2014

 

I decided to bring another pot into the Conservatory yesterday,to try and keep it, in case the weather worsens..so I must have some kind of feelings ..and I gave it a small drink..This one has a purple Bacopa in it,plus the Bidens you named for me..both still looking good..:o) The white one will have to take it's chances..unless I try to repot it..the tub is a stone one,so no way could I move it indoors..

16 Jan, 2014

 

Well done Sandra ... I wonder how long they will keep flowering for you. I was amazed to see a small blue trailing Lobelia in flower outdoors ... must have self set from a hanging basket.

16 Jan, 2014

 

Still got one lonely one of those too Shirley..left over from summer..what unseasonal weather we are having..I hope we don't get brought down to earth with a severe bump ! Lol.

16 Jan, 2014

 

We had a dreadful downpour overnight and earlier this morning ... hailstones and rain ... quite a few country areas have flooded roads ... :o(

17 Jan, 2014

 

Oh dear,Shirley..it's been a decent week here,and just a little downpour last night..fine today,and it dried the washing..but not a good forecast for tomorrow :o(

17 Jan, 2014

 

Felt sorry for the Brighton to London commuters ... a railway tunnel had flooded and the rail staff told passengers to contact their work to say they would be late ... or not in at all ... :o(

17 Jan, 2014

 

Pretty and dainty

22 Jan, 2014

 

It is,and both still flowering..:o)

24 Jan, 2014

 

Is this frost hardy and is it scented.

24 Jan, 2014

 

As far as I know,it's supposed to be an Annual,Tpb,and isn't scented..that's why I find it amazing they are still flowering..First time I have had them..but they are in a sheltered position in tubs by a house wall..saying that,we have had no prolonged hard frost yet..

25 Jan, 2014

 

Thank you for that info Bloomer I hope it with stands long hard frost s for you.
