 A picture of "the corner" for star gaze lily. As I said, it's not looking its best and we've just ordered a 4m roll of brushwood thatch from primrose.co.uk to replace the roofing. Yes, it is resting on a light framework - a few strategically placed pieces. The thatch is wired to it in a few places to hold it secure. Hope this helps.

Thanks, star gaze lily. Yes, my OH put the roof over the trellises two years ago. It was previously quite dangerous to sit there on the bench under the trees......pigeons...need I say more? The only problem now is that the birds love to shred the roofing for their nests. So another trip to Argos to buy another roll is imminent.

Rude but funny.

Can't think of an egg joke at the moment....you'll have to white a minute.

This really cheers me up!

Identification please

 I can't  cheat and add it to the "Star of your garden" thread - because it's last year's photo...but it's pouring with rain outside and I thought I would cheer myself up by looking at "old" photos...I love this one of my back garden. Do you have favourites too?

Identification please

 I saw these lovely plants in Abbey Gardens, Winchester last week. I'd love some! Can someone tell me what they are please.

Help with fuchsias please

Thanks for the info, Shrinking Violet......I think I'll try a preventative systemic insecticide next year. I felt I had lost quite a few flowers by cutting off affected shoots this year.

I warned my magnolia....

I told my poorly-performing magnolia in the Spring that it's continued presence in my garden would depend upon it's behaviour......when I looked closely today there appeared to be about twenty buds developing. Do you think these are flower buds? And is it usual for August?

Help with fuchsias please

Some very helpful advice here. I had the same problem with two hardy fuchsias.....but what exactly causes these symptoms?
