    Love the flowers, look just like my garden! My Zinnias are only about 8inches tall, so no good for cutting. Do you grow sweet peas? I love them, but not the little black bugs they attract-I put them in the garage, which is dark, and leave the door open, they fly out towards the light, then they come into the house. Must watch ITV at 7.30pm on Friday, AT is featuring Foxtail Lilly /Tracey Mathieson’s cutting patch near Oundle.

    I am so pleased to hear that your season is being so successful Ben :-) The drought has been a pain but such is the lot of farmers! Learning what people like in your area is very important information for next year……I find Calendula have their fans too and they can light up a bouquet in need of a boost. I grew Zinnias last year and thought I had sorted out the varieties that grew tallest to sow this year…….it seems not, as they are very short! Some of last years were nearly a metre high and quite beautiful; just wish I could remember their names!

    Looking great! I like Calendula :) I also like Sherry, but you’re too far away.
