 As you can see, at this time of the year it is a tangle. There are Hollyhocks planted from seed this spring which will flower next year, Roses, Verbena Bonarienses, herbs in pots, Cosmos, Gypsophila etc.

dog lovers

I was given a 9 year old dog a year ago. She had never been spayed and her teeth were grey. It cost just over £200 (most of it for the anaesthetic) to have her spayed/ teeth cleaned/3 removed. Her previous owners had got the vet to remove 6 teeth! Why on earth they didn't then give her some teeth cleaning item I don't know. She now has 1/2 a 'Fish Stick' each morning, she loves them and her teeth have remained white.

No longer receiving email notifications

I haven't had email notifications since Spring 2013. I've spoken to the techy people; they got them back briefly, then they vanished again. I use a laptop and all the right bits are in place, so I kind of assumed that no one was getting them.

It would be very useful to have them back again.

Just looked that Aster up; the Prostratus version is really stunning.

Rude but funny.

Is the French for 'small man' 'omelette'?

For small formal shapes, you could consider Hebes as well. Whatever you get check on final height/spread; you don't want to be spending a fortune a few years down the line with a tree surgeon
