Garden Confessions - 3 Worst Crops of 2016!

Crikey, that sounds far worse than the trouble I had with house sitters who didn't water the pots properly. If you didn't swear, shout or hit them, what did you do? If nothing, then you must be a very kind and gentle person!

Italy is beautiful. I'd never been until I met second OH, now I've been several times. Love Tuscany and Ravello overlooking the bay of Naples.

I just asked where you live on the photo thread aym! Because you said you like Norfolk.


I've been using home-made plant supports like Papi-Jo's for years. Alan Titchmarsh showed how to make them years and years ago. But the ones I used on the autumn anemones were too wide and not tall enough.

Now I know where our usual summer thunderstorms were! They went to Alberta to water Johnny Canoe's garden!


My main gardening problems this year were caused by drought in SW France.

Morning all.


The thought of Trump as President is frightening.


Sounds warm where you are Obelixx, must be because of the sea. I'm a lot further south and it only got to 13°. +2° this morning instead of -2° so no frost today. Grass was white yesterday but the dahlias are still flowering.

That disease is also called Slime Flux. You can look them both up. I found this which sounds quite useful about treating it.  http://www.donsgarden.co.uk/pests/511

I'll have to come back later to see Fairygirl's photos as my Internet is sooo slow this morning. We stayed in Taynuilt by Loch Etive years ago on a family holiday and watched Highland games in Oban on a glorious warm summer's day.


aym, you said you like Norfolk, do you live there? OH has a cottage in South Norfolk, but it's not by the sea.

Well done DD, great news.

I hope you manage to enjoy your anniversary, Pat. It sounds so exotic negotiating kangaroos and wombats on the road! Deer and wild boar here.


Good luck with the Tearoom and the Maire, DD. Is there any sun near you? You could wear sunglasses.


We've been shopping and picked up my pullovers from M & S. They all fitted!

Good heavens Papi Jo, your flowers are amazing! I have Orkney Cherry, about 4 years old, stopped flowering in August and is only about 1 foot wide.
