        Hi @wiseowl , your top piccy isn't a bleeding heart ( sorry ) . It's a Dicentra Formosa. Same family as Dicentra Spectabilis ( Bleeding heart) but different flowers and leaves.

        I think I remember you having problems with this one earlier on in the season ( different growth rate to a normal Bleeding heart ? ), now we know why....

        Enjoy it Woo , they make nice climps and they're rarer than white Bleedimg hearts.

        I'll take a pic of mine later on ( if I can get into the garden ) to show you the difference.

              No apology needed Woo. Perhaps you were sold the wrong plant. It happens :)

              ( I'm just surprised the mighty Verdun didn't pick up on it as I remember him saying it was a Bleedung heart :) )

                Good morning @KFF my friend I have the label but all it says is Dicentra "Alba" all I have to do now is to learn to tell the difference between "Spectabilis and Formosa and they are both Alba's ;):smile:

                    Thalia daffodils very elegant and multi flower heads per stem. The picture with the pulmonaria has thalia daffs behind them as well. I probably prefer the white daffs over the yellow ones.

                            Well @Perki you sure know how to plant up pots. They are gorgeous.

                            In pic 5 are those pink and white striped tulips Peppermint Stick? I am planning to get those for next year.
