Posted: 21/05/2013 at 22:56

I have some very tall rather rampant rudbeckias that get the chop. Almost time!

May be omnivores, but they certainly eat their greens!

Talkback: Most hated plants

I hate bindweed which winds itself all round my most loved plants. And stinging nettles which do their best to get me before I've noticed them.

Hello Verdun, thank you for the compliments. My garden is big, over an acre, fairly high maintenance but I love it. I'm just fretting at the moment because there is so much more to do in it and we've had 5 days of relentless rain.

Did anyone watch Chelsea Flower Show tonight? I always enjoy it even the bits I don't like!

I think they may have sorted the photo problem. Some have errors, but some blow up beautifully when you click on them and they don't have white bands anymore. I've looked back over several pages. Some great photos.

Yes, that one looks like a clematis. But not the other one!

It's actually pretty good natured so long as it's not in full sun. I've had it in dry shade, but it prefers it moist really. Only problem I had was when the deer ate it!

Verdun, I don't want you to get the wrong idea of me. The majority of my beds are herbaceous perennial borders, manured and composted, but sometimes one has to be practical because of problems. I have arthritis in my hands now, probably from years of weeding on hands and knees with a little hand fork.

What's the weather like in your area?

Poured with rain for 5th day running, ground sodden and squelchy, 10°.  SW France!
