I love the smell of bluebells.

Roses "Lady Emma Hamilton" and "Constance Spry".

Honeysuckle.

Blueberry bush.

Yes, rain water is important, meant to mention it. I live in a hard water area, they don't like hard water.

My two did much better when I added another one of a different variety for pollination. Mine are in large pots with ericaceous soil in shade in mid afternoon from the house. This year I will be netting them as the birds found out and starting taking the berries.

Gloves!

Whoop Whoop for Clari

Thanks all, I feel much more hopeful about the Cosmos now. I will pinch them out when they are bigger and, hopefully, they will grow bushy. Other years I've had tall ones in beds, but I don't think they really like the hot dry days in summer here. I wanted bushier shorter ones for pots so I can control the watering better and Antiquity looked lovely.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I'm retired Linda, but I've loved gardening ever since we bought our first house when I was 21 and mother-in-law showed me what to do. I was a nurse, then had 4 children and moved to France. That was first husband's idea, I like England, well I like both but wouldn't have moved given the choice. He died some years ago, now have lovely 2nd OH. I'm glad you are enjoying your retirement.

Thank you for the Cosmos advice. Was going to start a thread but you've both answered my question.

Gardeners Boy, has your dad died? I seem to remember your parents having a diamond anniversary a year ago. You said your wife has carers, sounds as though you're not having a good time. Hugs and best wishes.
