Have you watered them enough? Pots can dry out quite quickly in warm summer weather.

Knowing when to stop

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 21:24

I never have time to start when the summer comes! Either it's too hot, or there's a thunderstorm or we have friends and family to stay or we are going to England to see friends and family.

Pruning advice

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 21:22

Philadelphus is pruned just after flowering. It will flower next year on the wood it made this year so it should be done before late summer or you will lose flowers next year. You prune off the top third and when the shrub is older you cut out some of the main stems to stop it getting congested and to encourage new ones.

my cucumbers are massive

What sort are they? Some of the outside ones don't grow very long. But don't let them get too fat or the pips go hard.

Growing Roses

My roses are just about finished for the moment. The odd flower here and there, but some new shoots are growing and some new buds are forming. Have fed them.

HELLO FORKERS!

My daughter, OH and her 2 children, & her friend with her 2 children are staying. Plus one son and his OH and baby stayed last night and then other daughter, 3 small sons & OH arrives on Friday. But Saturday we are off to Yorkshire to see friend and Uncle. Daughter staying here on holiday.

But bad news this morning, daughter who is here had her house in North of France burgled, neighbour rang Police and they just took her jewel box, full of sentimental things of not much value. She's very upset. They'd bought an expensive new burglar proof front door, they broke it.
