Why doesn't my philadelphus smell?

Perhaps it's a Deutzia. They can look very similar, depending on the sort.

Do you live in France pz? I do. I grow French Marigolds from seed and they have never caught blackfly and they smell quite strong. Are yours really French Marigolds? Do you have a photo?

His lawn was amazing, I think I'd be scared to walk on it. But, I must admit, there are other things I would rather do than make a lawn perfect.

If you can wait for weathering the new one will eventually look like the older part. Otherwise look for some woodstain the right colour.

I always pinch the tops off. Works quite well.

I'd never heard of Hylda Baker. In something called "Nearest and Dearest", I looked her up. They spelt it with a y. I was too busy with training to be a nurse, and then working funny hours, to watch TV.

Love your white rose, Wintersong.

Joybell, the red wavy lines are because of spellcheck, your computer thinks you have made a spelling mistake. It doesn't agree with a lot of the names on here!

Too hot to garden today. Have done ironing in the sitting room as it's cool there, thick stone walls, high ceiling, was a barn.

Hello all. Pippin sounds a lucky girl.

Been out at a friend's. She's decided to become an agent for a company selling Aloe Vera products. Ordered something for my elderly horse who has rubbed himself sore because of flies.
