i used to have them in containers, i removed them and placed them into the garden. They have flourished in the ground. After they have finished flowering the leaves will die back for easy removal and the flower heads are easy to remove and they will sit in the ground for next year. Popular with bees and are left alone by slugs and snails.
As you can see Mr Bee busying himself around the flowers. Then after a rain storm I decided to try and take some pictures in the dusk light. The results are below.
My name is Jonathan and I enjoy working in my garden in my spare time. I am no professional, just an amateur. My second love is photography, shooting the flowers in my garden and of course sharing them with people who share my passions.
