    Lovely - one of my favourite cultivars. Is is worth removing the growing plantation around the base so it is is not being robbed of any nutrients?

    those are some bi-annuals flowers i placed in there last year. they did well together then. i use liquid sea weed once a month to keep them happy. they will definitely be removed after this years blooms.
