Best Salvias to grow?

Salvia Blauhugel flowers all summer, bees love it, but it may not be tall enough for you.

Morning all, sun is shining.

Going back to France tomorrow. Just seen the weather forecast, cold, rain and wind from Wednesday.

We were going out for our last meal, but have lamb and veg over from yesterday so may go for a lunchtime drink instead.

Strictly is back!

I'm glad Daisy got through too. Couldn't understand why she has been in the dance off twice running.

I thought Laura looked a bit wooden, usually Ore is the better dancer. But Greg isn't as good as either of them, although he was better this week. Ed should have gone though, but this week he was light on his feet.

I really liked Danny and Louise. Like Obelixx, I can't warm to Claudia either - but her footwork is good.

Jasmin on a Shed

Trachelspermum jasminoides is a twiner so it will need something to wind itself around, like wires. It's not the same plant as jasmine, Loana. But Jasmine twines as well.

What is an all year round garden?

Lovely picture, Nut.

I think I have something flowering every month of the year, except possibly December. There may be the odd viola out then and there are berries, if the birds haven't eaten them all. They don't usually eat the berries on the Nandina, but they like the cotoneasters and the pyracantha.

Gorgeous roses,Yviestevie.

I usually agree with you, punkdoc. Don't worry about those who don't agree with you, we don't all have the same views. But I hope they haven't sent you unpleasant PMs, if they have then ignore them.

Lunch went well, lamb and veg were lovely and I enjoyed the company. They stayed until after 5pm. I've just finished washing up what wouldn't fit in th dishwasher.

Glad you had a good visit, Dove. The pheasant from the farm shop was delicious and so was the Sea Bass.

I hope you feel better soon Thankthecat.

It's lovely and sunny outside and the lamb is filling the kitchen with the fragrance of Rosemary and garlic. I'm having brekkies, slice of toast.

Rose suggestion for new metal arch?

Clare Austin, I've heard (haven't got it) can have heavy flowers that hang their heads. There is a lovely little white rambler called Snow Goose, repeat flowering, from David Austin. A friend has it on an arch, gorgeous.

I have A Shropshire Lad, beautiful shaped flowers and almost thornless, but it doesn't have a lot of flowers at a time. Does yours, Chicky? Mine is in a large pot though, up a pillar.

Morning all.

Just put the 5hr lamb in the oven, will have to take it out later to make room for the roast potatoes which will be at a higher temperature. 2 couples of new friends coming to lunch.
