Ta Plocket, I thoughtyou would know. I've found the lable and its called "Radar Love" - what a cheesey name for a clem though. I bought it to climb up some mesh and cover a concrete washing line post, its doing very well so far
RF Love the Sunflower photo with the bee's Now thats obviously not in the tallest sunflower compo unless you were on a step ladder ;D
Picked these a few days ago so I could enjoy them, African Queen Lillies, very strong purfume. Had them a few years now, they used to be more of a pinky orangey colour but seem to go more yellow each year, not sure if this is normal.

Nice lilies. I bought some new varieties this year, one called Vulcano and the other Blackout. They both like alkaline soil and ours is on the acid side so I have them planted in pots and added some lime to the compost mix. Could it be something to do with the Ph in your soil? Mine haven't flowered yet but they shouldn't be too long. I'll post some pics when they do.
Chuckles - Glad you like Bishop of York, I think it's lovely - it's become a new favourite (but I can be abit fickle when it comes to which plant/flower is favourite ;D) Remember the cheapie Dahlia from Wilkinsons? A quid I think......well this is 'Shooting Star'......not bad for a quid
JLottie - I've watered mine for the first time in ages so hopefully they will perk up a bit. My yellow crocosmia are still in bud too - it just goes to show that there is a difference in plants flowering times if they are in the south or the north - or the middle in my case
