Had a lovely time and yummy food at the lunch party. Got home at 7pm.

Topbird, someone is starting something like the ngs in France, but not here yet. Someone is coming to inspect my garden for next year. I am about an hour from where you will be, I think, but we are going to Italy, Lake Garda, on Thursday, back 9 days later. A friend I first met on this forum will be housesitting. There is a garden open to the public not far from Sarlat 

Clearing a garden

If the grass doesn't germinate under the tree you can get seed for shady areas in smallish packets.

Gorgeous heleniums - which varieties?


Posted: 30/08/2014 at 11:39

Morning all. Just been to my son bearing his birthday present. Had a cuddle with baby grandson.

Where are you going in Dordogne, Topbird? But we are going to Italy the day after you arrive and won't be here.

Off to a lunch party, must put my glad rags on and some mascara and lippy.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Once upon a time it worked, hasn't for ages. I think we've all reviewed the same number.

A summer's worth of work.

Hello greenlove, you've done a great job with your garden, thanks for all the photos. This is the garden gallery where we post photos of our gardens and talk about them.

Tomato Blight

Posted: 29/08/2014 at 23:03

My GH tomatoes have never had blight, but the outside ones have. Potatoes and tomatoes are the same family so if you have blight in one it's best not to plant either in that place the next year.

No longer receiving email notifications

I'm not getting email notifications either. Sometimes happens, then they come back.

I have 4 different heleniums and would like some more, especially the deep red one they showed - but they didn't name it, or several others, so frustrating. Was a bit disappointed in the prog this week. Monty planted some grasses that look just what I keep trying to weed out.

Good News for Mike

Cheers Mike!
