In the garden
These are the only runners I grow now, Sunset. Beautiful peachy pink flowers and the sweetest tasting beans.
This is lovely, but I will need to curb its enthusiasm, and really try and find out what to do with it - I think the roots are used. Lovely flowers, though, the inula family.
A very beautiful shrubby plant this, which I grew from seed several years ago - flowers of purest white, cut away to reveal the fresh green calyx underneath.
Wish you could smell these..........the plants have done very well this year, must have been all the rain! I've picked dozens of bunches so far, a few still to come yet. One of my favourites, especially the bicolours.
These seed all over the garden; not the fuller's teasel, but the other one. I love the flowers, and leave them for the finches to eat the seeds come the autumn; very stately and grand looking, adding good height around the place.
