I wish I could go. It looks wonderful. I use to order plants from them and Beth Chatto years ago when I lived in Kent.

We will be going to England, travelling west in June, past Malvern to Shropshire, then back to Eastbourne, where we have a pied à terre.

Have planted out 4 troughs and 2 pots, gazanias, lobelias, begonia Dragon Wing, and verbenas, but not all together.

There are 2 in a row. OH gave it a really hard prune in 2012 and cut all the dead out and last year it grew like mad, but fewer flowers.

Could it be rabbits or deer SweetPea?

Oh, what an awful thing to happen SweetPea. Weren't you able to salvage anything? What did the eating? Slugs and snails?

Have finished moving enough stuff out of the GH so I've now finished planting the tomatoes, sweet peppers and cucumbers.

Finished planting the outside tomatoes, peppers and courgettes, not the cucumbers - still hardening off. Planted French marigolds by the tomatoes and by the beans. Nasturtiums all coming up by the broad beans (which are flowering).

This afternoon, back to flower gardening.

Morning all.

Been busy sorting non-gardening stuff.

Hope the day continues like that, Clari. We should have sun for the next 3 days

There's always a lot to do in mine, Cleo. Gardens change and grow when you're not looking! Especially weeds!

plant ID please

The perennial one is pretty tough, flowers fairly early in the year. It's seeded itself in cracks in the paving of my terrace, so pretty. My daughter gave me the original plant over 15 years ago.

Amanda, Mike's daughter sent message to Fishy, on another thread, in case any one wonders. Mike wanted her to send message to us, safely through the operation. Get well soon Mike. Hugs.

Yes, leave it there, parents will be distraught, but keep the cat away for the moment.

Message from Mike

Let's hope that the operation has done the trick. Lovely of Mike to think of us all when going through such an ordeal. Best wishes for a good recovery Mike, and take it easy.
