We went to the Wok place for lunch but all the local supermarkets are shut - bank holiday. We'd forgotten. The GC had a sign saying it was open at 2.30 on bank holidays and several cars were waiting in the car park, but at 2.40 everyone gave up and drove off, not a sign of opening.

Matty, it's Saturday next week you are flying to France with me, or do you mean the doc will give an answer on Tuesday?

Have a good gardening day, Marion. No gardening here, raining, but I think I need a break after the last 2 days anyway.

There have been quite a lot of complaints about seed and plant companies on this site over the years, especially Van Meuwen and T&M. I don't know if it produces results, apart from getting it off one's chest, but once time someone from Thompson and Morgan did read the post and replied.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/plants/thompson-and-morgan---issues/285006.html

Morning all. Didn't post yesterday as was very busy see  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/anyone-done-any-gardening-today/590988-67.html

You've all written such a lot! Wasn't the weather any good for gardening? Taken ages catching up.

I have the same weather as DD, rain. When OH gets back from choir workshop we are going to lunch at the Wok place then go to supermarket. Before that I will clean the blue bedroom as Matty is coming to stay, if she's well enough. First, Tuesday, I'm going to stay with her and we'll go to the Malvern Spring Show.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I'll have to do something about the choisya, but it's flowering at the moment. Can I cut it hard back when it's finished? It's about 20 years old and I cut a lot off last autumn. That sideways branch was under the conifer, it doesn't look too bad from the other path.

 Expect they will turn out back to front.


 

Like Wintersong, I was busy, then tired yesterday and didn't post. Last autumn OH dug up a huge, dying cotoneaster horizontalis and a horrid prickly conifer that was smothering a Choisya. Yesterday I finally dealt with digging manure and compost into the bed and re-planting it.

Small leafed lilac, Vanille Fraise hydrangea, Caryopteris, 2 hardy Fuschia Delta Sarah, Perovskia, Buddleia Buzz and a row of bedding dahlias.

The stone in the middle is the septic tank cover!

Sorry, I can't remember what he said, didn't listen as I don't want to be bothered with digging them up. Can't get around to everything in my big garden!

Morning all. Thank you all for the pet sympathy.

Nice day, so far. Gardening, weeding on the agenda.

I had a horrid dream that the house had been burgled in the night and OH's piano was outside on the terrace, but all is OK. Phew!

That's what I do. If you plant them quite deeply they tend to live longer.
