Sounds a lovely day, Dove. Lobster  sounds a luxury picnic. Glad you enjoyed Miss Saigon, Yvie Stevie.

Ross was rather foolish tonight, he'll drive Demelza nuts if he carries on like that.

Strictly is back!

Wrong result for me. I like Naga and I often watch her on Breakfast TV. She's not cold. DR how could you know anything about her when you admit you don't even watch her. She was near the bottom dance wise but was much better than Ed Balls. I find Anastacia full of herself, she gets on my nerves.

Planting plans and keeping track of your plant names

I had a plan when I started in 1991 but I've lost it. I have a garden note book to write down what needs changing or moving. Over the years it would have been too complicated to keep up with the plan. I take photos regularly through the year.

cherry trees

If it is a sweet edible cherry you prune it in the summer. But I never prune mine. Cherries catch bacterial diseases easily.

Spray for blackfly when you can see the flies and spray them directly. It should say what to do on the bottle.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

In the last week I've cut down several piled high barrow loads of finished plants and planted 40 Thalia and Actea daffodils in the lawn under a cherry tree. I've started emptying pots and troughs of summer bedding and replacing with some fresh compost and planting violas and pansies. Still lots to do. Can't emptying the troughs of bedding dahlias as they are still in flower, despite a few mild frosts.

Some October blooms.

They are lovely Angie, the salvia goes very well with Darcie Bussell and Lady Emma H is my favourite too, I have her and some of the others.

Have you seen our garden pictures? http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-pictures-2016/898196-88.html/  Also the My Flowers threads. That's where we post photos of our gardens. When people post regularly then those threads keep popping up for us to see, whereas single posts disappear under all the others eventually.
