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.

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!

Where we are. the Big Map.

It would have to be easy to put oneself on the map. When Blackest started it he put some of us, including me, on it as we didn't know how.

I went to see Dordogne Damsel this afternoon. She has a lovely garden that has been neglected for some time, but was planted by someone who knew about gardens. Beds are quite large but there was a tangled mat of grass and weeds and nettles all over them, trying to throttle the plants. She's cleared quite a bit but still lots more to do. I have a bigger area and more lawn, but she has a much bigger area of planted beds. She's lovely, I hope we keep in touch.

Not with the euonymus that I have, one is gold and green, the other is silver and green.
