Hello to all those who posted here and get email notifications. YvieStevie started an new thread for 2015, but no one has been there since April. Has anyone been to any gardens and could post some lovely photos? Please. Thank you.

Monty's watering advice

Living in Dordogne where it can get very hot in summer, I give mine a good soaking every other day, until water comes out at the bottom.

Hasn't anyone been to any gardens this year since April?

We went to Waterperry in Oxfordshire before we went to New York. It was looking lovely.

Do you think I'd win a prize for the biggest carrot at the local show?

Done my first bit of gardening since we came home from the New York trip. Have deadheaded 3 climbing roses and done some weeding in the veggie garden.

Before and after.

Suggestions for ants in flower bed

I have had that problem before, especially in dry weather. Ant powder was the only thing that worked, but usually I don't use insecticides. Case of needs must!

They can be slow to germinate, old seeds are unreliable. But that is rather late to sow. I sow mine in the autumn and again in early spring. Also I sow mine 1cm deep.
