Whoops, googled wrong Bressingham. It is only 45 miles or so; may be able to make it, just let me know the details

Nut, it is 73 miles from where I live, but may be coming up from London that morning; best if you tell me when you are meeting up and I could join you if I can.

What veg are you growing this year?

Harriet, I'm sure, lamb permitting, that it will all do well.

Orchid L, how do the Aubergine do out of doors; is it a special variety?

I am very impressed with the amount of veg everyone is growing. We are all going to be immensely healthy

Daisy lawn in trend!

Wow, it sounds very impressive...and I do find grass pretty boring.

Dill

I love Dill and always try to grow some. I put some in the cavity of fish before cooking in the oven wrapped in foil. Or lemon and dill sauce with truite bleu. (a large saucepan of simmering water, some vinegar and trout that has been cleaned and wiped, but not washed; just a few minutes simmering then serve with dill and lemon sauce)

Neglected Rose

...and cut it back again in the Autumn and possibly shape it more precisely in late Feb next year.

I would gently cut away the branches that are flapping around, remove the plants/weeds at the base, give it some rose food or well rotted horse manure. In the Autumn, please plant it in a larger pot, with Fish Blood and Bonemeal mixed in with the fresh compost, place the new container on a large saucer, so that it can suck up some water when you are not there. I love this way of growing roses, I have 2 half standards by the front door and they are much admired.

Bear in mind that a rose that is confined like this does need feeding, dead-heading it will ensure many blooms.

scroggin, how do you manage with Celeriac? My neighbour said that their's only grew to the size of a golf ball

philippa, you are sooo lucky to have space for chickens. Some mornings, the mutt and I walk past a garden with a lovely chicken run under some old apple trees; they get up surprisingly late! When they are out they are such fun to watch.
