UK Gardener, Sounds like in your climate, as is true on parts of our Pacific coast, many fruits and flowers appear simultaneously that on the East USA coast bloom or ripen at different times. I'm guessing your climate is rather mild, without huge extremes in temperature and humidity?

My day lilies (buzz bombs? never heard'em called that before.) are blooming heavily now, but the wild geraniums, azaleas, and all fruit trees finished blooming 6 to 8, even 12weeks ago. I envy you your campanulas. I try to grow them here, but they barely hang on--too hot and humid in the summer. When I see photos of English gardens with all the delphiniums and campanulas, I gasp with pleasure.
