Repeat after me
A South African perennial popular with alpine gardeners and gaining a wider appreciation. The flowers, which have a nice scent, open in the evening and close again during the day. This one, a cutting I brought over from Norfolk, has survived, neglected in a big planter outside and is now proving it's worth with lots of new growth and a nice show of flowers. More cuttings will be taken - they root easily - for planting elsewhere and sharing with friends.
A difficult night, sleep late and very disturbed but by the end of the afternoon a resolution to this problem seems to have been found. Tim came, I worked a half day and am now off to exterminate dandelion clocks before they call time!
