Sounds lovely, sky is flawless black here, getting chilly.

Verdun could always come here and help with the potting. Lots of other interesting gardening stuff for him to do too, like weeding and cutting back.

My parcel of plants came late morning, but I've only had time to pot on half of them, over 200, mostly pansies and violas. Lunch, car to garage, 2 visitors, watered pots and now it's to late. Will have to finish tomorrow morning, but going out to lunch.

Woolly Bear, the caterpillar of the Tiger Moth seems the closest, but not quite right.

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 24/09/2014 at 16:55

I had almost given up on Sweet Peas because in July and August it can be in the 30°s for days at a time. But this year it was cooler and wetter than usual.

I didn't ask it!

Cutting back Philadelphus

Posted: 24/09/2014 at 09:41

Those two are so different, choisya is glossy and evergreen, the philadelphus looks messy at this time of year anyway as it will be preparing to lose it's leaves for winter. I think your philadelphus looks fine. They have a certain number of thin stems anyway. Prune after flowering, but it's the thicker, older stems you prune out. I agree with Dove about the perfume. Not all plants have tidy habits, adds to their charm.

Reviving an old slightly tired garden

Well done. I like the way you've done different levels and a planter on the decking.
