                  Very Nice NigelJ

                  I really need more spring colour, by time late May/June comes and the lupins / delphiniums are out I think I don't need spring colour when I've got these , then regret it when Spring arrives again :doh:.

                  My pots haven't done to well this year , quite a lot of stunted tulips which I think is down to me not watering enough , I don't think to water in spring .

                  Tried ivy in the troughs again pointless the wind trashes them .

                  Amelancheir lamarkii shame you can't see the flowers due to the sky :doh:

                            Thanks @pete - I also have P. cynaroides 'Little Prince' which is much redder on the outside and earlier - I prefer this one.
