Love Red Hot Pokers, an old fashioned flower but still very nice, you don't see enough of them around. :D

Nice pokers!
But that bed behind looks a treat any chance of a shot of it?
Never believe anyone who says your proposed garden is too big!!!

Remember, treat others how you would like to be treated.

Lovely pic and gorgeous flowers, i love the colour, very summery :D
I am thinking of planting some myself this year. Are they hard to grow and how tall/wide do they generally grow?
I'd much rather regret something I have done, than haven't done.

Don't know your climate, Shine. :?

Not hard to grow in climates they like. Mine is cold climate.
See the thread called "REALLY tough plants........"on the Garden forum, it will tell you heaps about tough plants and which ones can be a weed.

Thanks for that. We have a cool climate here as well.
