That was lucky, Liri. Sleeping in airports isn't much fun. Hope you had a good time despite the weather.

Eventually got into the garden and did some weeding, but did stack 5 barrows of logs under the stairs for the woodburner first. I always feel lazy if I haven't been outside and done something, but in winter it's often impossible.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbit_rabbit_rabbit  -  but it says the origin is unknown. I was brought up in Surrey and we did the same as sg lily.

Grey and cold, forecast yesterday said sun, now it says cloud. Not inviting outside to go a prune.

Can anyone recommend a Jamine for me?

I buy seeds when we are in England, thanks Baza. But now I know where to go.

Pruning roses this year

Queen Elizabeth is pink. I thought your rose was pink but the photo is a bit dark and sideways on my laptop.

And now I've looked at them enlarged - what amazing prices. Don't think anywhere in France sells them that cheap.

Morning all. Well done Lyn's Dad. Is today his actual birthday? Hope he has a happy one and I hope he is feeling better today.

-3° and frosty. Sun should be out though. Will carry on pruning this afties. Found a tray of Bellis daisies in a cold frame, must plant them out they look a bit hungry.

I use long lasting fertiliser granules, last for 6 months.

Have you tried ageratums, short bedding dahlias, diascia, French marigolds, verbena, pelargoniums? Busy-Lizzies are happiest in shade.
