Morning everyone and hello Penine  don't believe we've met. Off to do 5 hours today not quite so hot and first garden has shady bits so shouldn't be too bad. The second garden is beautiful. She has gone right over the top out the front and everyone comments on it. All bright colours makes you smile just looking at it. Have a good day all and don't forget sun cream!!!!

When you say you have watered them do you mean the leaves Norma? If you water the leaves when the sun is out that would scorch them too.

Try so hard to keep up with this thread but find it impossible so started at the beginning and am slowly reading thru all the posts. Very entertaining

So glad you posted this.  I keep plants in containers of water that I am moving between gardens. Saw these maggots this morning in one of them and had no idea what they were. Do now  and good guys too by the description of them.

Going off topic a bit here but just looked through you posts. Have you posted a picture of your garden before? I found a few pictures of the things you grow but not the whole area. Would love to see it.
