Chicky, your garden sounds like mine! I have a lower wall deer exposed bit and 2 years ago new OH fenced off the upper bit as the deer ate nearly everything except the foxgloves and I was on the point of giving up. The upper bit is such fun now as when I plant something I know it has a chance and some of the roses are recovering.

Thanks Bev, I think my head is getting bigger, you're always so nice about my garden! It is a lot of work though, so it's great when people say nice things.

I use edging shears too. They are fine on curves. I have long handled ones that you can walk round with and short scissor like ones which I use for edging when I'm kneeling on a kneeler weeding. Then every 3 years or so I go round with a half moon cutter if there are tatty bits.

What did you do in your garden today?

I did nothing in the garden today Rained. Friends came for lunch. Defrosting the little freezer. Already did the big one.

What's the weather like in your area?

Bob is sweet, Birdy. I clicked on the pic and got a good close up.

Wet, very. Outdoor tomatoes looking rather unhappy compared with the indoor ones. Too pale, not enough growth.

Thank you hollie hock.

Welcome Fred. I wish you luck, I'm sure it will all be lovely. I hope there is some good soil there if the previous owner used to be a keen gardener. Keep us posted.

Good morning all. Six friends are coming to lunch today. Glad I planned boeuf bourguignon and not a BBQ as it's pouring with rain. My arthritic hands and tendonitis elbow will be glad of the rest from gardening!

Plant ID please

Tina, did you plant it good and deep? It likes manure and compost in the soil and a really good soak every week, not little and often.

Gosh, although it's been so cold and wet here in Dordogne, often colder than England, everything is still a lot more in advance. Chicky's wisteria is coming out and mine is over. My roses are coming out.
