    Thanks for compliments folks.

    :) Ha. @Zigs I don't know if you have suitable habitat for this little gem but I would be happy to post you some cutting material. It roots very easily; the difficulty is getting the conditions right after that.

      I had to look this up; it would indeed fit in nicely. I'll keep an eye out for this plant. The difficulty I have now is that I'm running out of space! The things that do well, do really well and some seed prolifically.

        Ta Redwing :)

        I'm probably not in one place at a time long enough to look after it at the moment but I might get back to you :thumbsup:

          My Med garden is thriving in this heat! Some pictures from today.

          Edit: note to mods: I tried to post a third picture but it only would come up mini....tried several times. Clearly I am doing something wrong.

                Really lovely. The colours blend so well, and you have some great contrasting textures. Your Cheddar Pink is spectacular.

                  Thanks @Irmemac :). I cut off all the dead flowers on the Cheddar Pink yesterday and hopefully will get a second lot in a few weeks.

                    Thank you. I took your advice and bought a Convolvulous cneorum that you recommended. There just happened to be one at my local GC that was pot bound and reduced to half price. It still had a few flowers.

                          Doesn't look quite as Mediterranean as in June, but still beautiful in the snow, @Redwing!
