Jaybee, regarding the bent wire thingy that I wrote about on page 1, I first got it from Alan Titchmarch, years ago, when he did GW.

Frustrating sort of day. Every time I went outside to garden it poured, then stopped when I went indoors.

Only grass I've ever planted  was Pennisetum fireworks. GC told me they were hardy, but they weren't. Died.

I was in the middle of weeding and doing the Chelsea Chop on huge rudbeckias when heavens opened. Just when I'd thought sun at ast this morning.

What's the weather like in your area?

Nice morning, but cold. In the middle of weeding and doing the "Chelsea Chop" on huge rudbeckias when heavens opened.

You could stick to clematis, because different ones flower at different times. Morning Glory flowers to the frosts. Here's a good site about clematis.

Morning all. It's actually sunny at last, but only 5° earlier. My heucheras are bigger than usually too and my runner beans haven't moved since I planted them out.

Morning Forkers! Am I first? It's gone midnight in France! Does that count?

I always forget Beechgrove too. Only seen two. Saw Chelsea though. Like Chris Beardshaw, but I expect everyone knows that now.  Probably old enough to be his mother!

When I remember, I chop my Herbstonne as it grows very tall. I find it's also rather rampant and I have to chop it's roots back. I have another very tall rudbeckia, Hortensia, which is also better for the chop and has double flowers.

Good heavens, you can tell the weather's not been good today, sounds like a cookery forum!
