        Hi Sheal, Narcissi season for me is early October ( I was a little late starting this year ) through to June.

            Hi @Victoria , your photos are stunning as always :)

            I think that is one I'm definitely gonna get next year. Is it a named variety?

            Are your Hibiscus in shade there? I've got mine in a bright sunny window but I can move it somewhere else if that's better.

              Thank you @KFF. I believe it is 'Charles Grimaldi'. I bought it in 2011 from Aldi as the red one but got what I have now. I put it up on GC for ID and I believe @pete did the honour ...

              The Hibiscus face South but they get filtered sun because of the Brug till early afternoon then none. The white one is about 5 feet tall now,the yellow and peach only 2-1/2 to 3 feet as I cut them back in May along with Charlie.

                      You guys and your Salvias. I have Salvia hispanica seeds to grow my own Chia. Not sure how pretty they will be, but ...
