 Good luck with the weeding they should be easier to pull after the rain. That's my hope as I'm going to the allotment today to tidy up. The bug-bear there is MaresTail, sneaks up on one after the rain!  Going to be a long day, but the company of  others is encouraging not least with cups of tea!

Lovely idea Marion   , a clever man. Look forward to the photos  , and thank for sharing those of  the Mall in Clifton. I hear that Shaun was splendid in his many guises!

With reluctance I have decided to dig up my Wigelia.It has grown far too big, crowding out the rose and hydranga with its arching stems. Planning to take a few hardwood cuttings before buying another. Fingers crossed, I'm following Carol Klein's advice

Hello flumpy   what beautiful flowers you have. I like the sweet peas, lovely colour. They look like mine

  er, no they don't     but it took so long to upload the photo we can compare them   . Have a good weekend.

Thank you Marion  I know what you mean. After seeing your friends tiny garden and the wealth of blooms he has I'm inspired to look again at mine and plan more climbers by the neighbouring fence. 

Looking around my eye was caught with more plants which bloom time and again almost unnoticed

^ the easpalier apple survived the upheaval of the new fence being erected. The workmen were so considerate, they even  moved a fence post " an inch to your left, left a bit" were the comments I heard. There will be apple pie when the next job needs doing!  

A relaxed evening of watering the plants is in order - restores the spirit.

Enjoy the weekend

Good morning  what a lovely catch up on here. Gardens blooming beautifully! 

Such a busy month:  family visits - always good to see them as we are quite spread out: quality time   . Both garden and allotment growing nicely

  Bright cloudy day and more weeding to do   but easier after the rain  Hoping to visit Stockton Bury gardens later.

 Enjoy your gardens  

Gardening by the Moon

Where is my thinking !? Don't answer that !  Tagetes now transplanted, leaves scrushed and scattered on red cabbage (suffering from grey fly) . So busy 'watching ' the moon  : forgetting the companion plants. 

Noticed that my second planting of peas looked happier planted on a fruit day, as do sprouts and broccolli for waiting for the root day ( protected from the wind).

No tips as yet, still getting to grips with the recommended concoctions 

Thanks for this thread, always good reading.

My allotment plot is on clay, even digging it over and adding manure there were  still lumps: which broke down nicely thanks to the rain of the last few days   . Now to weed the garden. One happy gardener here!


New allotment OMG...
