Spritz, did yours take a long time to actually open-up ?
Mine seem to be taking forever :(
They've been closed for a couple of weeks, how much longer ?? !!!

5 Jul, 2009

 

Yes, they did take an age! I have several now, in the top border too - and they have only just started to open. The ones in the new bed have overtaken them!

You and your new bed have got a lot to answer for Spritzy.

Interestingly enough, the Garden Centres seem to be stocking this Scabious, rather than the 'Chilli Pepper' and 'Chilli Sauce' ones, which turned out to be not as hardy as we thought.

At up, do you still have this plant or has the flooding seen it off?
I'm getting very interested in scabiosa and there are five new ones which Hayloft are selling, they look gorgeous:-)

It survived last winter, but if it gets really cold, that will 'do'' for it, I'm afraid. :-((

Are you expecting an arctic winter Barbara? :-(

One long-range forecast I read warned it could be, Ba, but another was totally different, so who knows?
