Do you have the pinky lilac one DD? thats pretty too :-)

15 May, 2010

 

No this is the only one, have not seen that one..

15 May, 2010

 

No I hadn't, swapped the seed on a swapshop, just said hardy pink/lilac scabious so thought I'd see what it was like, not quite as far on as this one but won't be long, will put a picture on when it flowers :-)

Mine hasn't even got buds yet! Could yours be Knautia Arvensis, Simbad?

16 May, 2010

 

Oooh don't know Wagger off to search now :-)

16 May, 2010

 

I love these :-)))
Mine don't even have buds yet either :-(

Glad I'm not the only one, Louise, lol. Of course, according to all the designers we should have replaced this with Cirsium Rivulare by now.

Really ?
I 'do' actually have a couple somewhere ..... can't remember seeing them though :-/

16 May, 2010

 

I hope they're not 'casualties', Louise.

16 May, 2010

 

Hmm, so do i :-/

16 May, 2010

 

Lost our Cirsium Rivulare this was a replacement, so doubly miffed now.

16 May, 2010

 

Ouch!

Looked at the knautia Arvensis Wagger, don't know if its same as mine or not can't decide, mine is exactly the same as knautia macedonica but lilacy pink, did find there is a knautia macedonica pink, one scabious flower looks pretty similar to another, spent ages flicking from one picture to another and still no wiser, lol.

Could be a 'Melton Pastel' then.

17 May, 2010

 

How come my Knautia is tall, then? Mine is K. macedonica...I didn't know there were sprawling ones as well.

Ummm...Wagger...I planted Cirsium rivulare this year - I didn't know I was supposed to! LOL.

19 May, 2010

 

Mine sprawls all over the place - escapes any supports I put in for it and lolls, lol.

19 May, 2010

 

I've found them ... well, 'one' actually :-/
It's doing okay but clearly the other one's disappeared :-/

19 May, 2010

 

Tell it to stand up straight, Wagger!!! Speak severely...

Glad you found one, Louise. :-))) I hope the other one turns up as well!

19 May, 2010

 

I can't bully my plants like that ! Can you come and do it for me, please, pretty please?

20 May, 2010

 

OK. On the way!!! They'll salute once I've told them how to behave!

20 May, 2010

 

Great - kettle's on, tea ........or cocoa at this time of night?

20 May, 2010

 

Sorry I didn't make it - I forgot the torch and got lost on the way to the gate. I've been wandering around the garden trying to find the way out ALL night! :-((((

21 May, 2010

 

Is that why Misty wouldn't go out? I thought something was scaring her!!!
