Gosh John, thanks for reminding me. I must take something to the bring and share lunch after church tomorrow.

Shadey shrubs for a planter

I have a small rhododendron, yakushimamun, in a pot in full shade. But it is only in flower in May, although it is evergreen.

 Self sown anemones.

The roses are very early this year.

Paul's Scarlet

I found a Dr. Ruppel clematis at last, last year. Am pleased with it.

The titles are all coming out in the wrong places.

David S, does it creep? I wondered about Phlox Stolonifera, but I'm not sure.

Lovely, bright azaleas, David K.

I assume you mean in shade as it's woodland. Tiarella  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/8390534/How-to-grow-Tiarella-Spring-Symphony.html   pulmonarias, anemone blanda, forget me nots, Brunnera "Jack Frost", snowdrops, violas, bluebells. In my shady bit I put in a few annuals for summer colour, BusyLizzies and bedding begonias.

They do die from the bottom up, as Mark says when they are ready to make little pods. Yours are way in advance of mine.

It was only 13° after lunch here. But comfortable for gardening.

My mother was in a good home too, but I was amazed to see on the news that it's not obligatory for carers to have any training and it's up to the boss or owner of the home. No state certificate and some don't get any training.

Have earthed up the potatoes and put in the supports for the broad beans. And weeded the future sweet corn bed.

Cucumbers Wilting and Dying

That happened to me last year. Someone advised planting them on a little mound of earth to let the water drain. Then when the weather got warm I just pushed some seeds into the ground outside in different places and it worked! A bit on the late side. They were Marketmore.
