Could also be an Aster. Mine have seed heads like that.

Helibored stupid!

Know the feeling. I am keeping myself amused by proofreading my stories so they can be published as books. Also working on a new story. But that is what amuses me.

Bit hard to suggest things for someone else to do. Have you any indoor hobbies which could be taken up?

Potatoes - Earlies and Main Crop

I would not recommend it.  Potatoes are heavy feeders and remove a lot of nitrogen and potash from the soil, so you would need to replace these. Also you run the considerable risk of Blight and lots of other nasties building up in the soil.

Those look like the plants which used to called Cinereria. Now Senecio cineraria 'Silver Leaf' They are not hardy.

This fine chap called this afternoon. Never gets any closer to the house than this and flies away at the slightest movement in the garden.

Which Magnolia?

Posted: 18/01/2016 at 10:40

Look out for ones which have been given an AGM (Award of Garden Merit) by the RHS. Obviously these plants are the best types.

Not so long ago I went round and counted our Magnolias. I found 13 so we had to go out and buy another one. Then I found one I had missed,so now we have 15.

Buy one in flower. We got one labelled Wadas's Memory which is a lovely white. Ours flowered purple!. Too late to return it even if we could remember where we bought it.

First time we have seen one in the garden, so very pleased to manage to get a picture. It does not hang around for very long.

Well done Clarice. I meant to start this like I did last year, but never got round to it.
