They're bossing it now........

I've lost all my echinaceas - again. Had several tries they just don't like this garden, nor do montbretias, nor lupins. Lysimachia punctata adores it, blast it! Dahlias are quite happy. Heleniums, after a couple of false starts, have settled in. Weeds think my garden is great!

HELLO FORKERS!

So sorry Mrs. G, I can understand you wanting to cry. You have the memories though.

Daughter's front door was totally smashed up, the door firm are fitting a stronger one. Luckily the neighbour called the police quickly. Thank you for your sympathy.

Oh no, Mrs. G, what a shame. I would have loved to have seen them. Sorry I'm not techy.

Thank you Yviestevie. We didn't get to go there when we were in Shropshire, just a bit too far away.

If I lived in England I would love to come. Green with envy!  Also that's the day of my grandson's baptism.

Have you watered them enough? Pots can dry out quite quickly in warm summer weather.

Knowing when to stop

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 21:24

I never have time to start when the summer comes! Either it's too hot, or there's a thunderstorm or we have friends and family to stay or we are going to England to see friends and family.

Pruning advice

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 21:22

Philadelphus is pruned just after flowering. It will flower next year on the wood it made this year so it should be done before late summer or you will lose flowers next year. You prune off the top third and when the shrub is older you cut out some of the main stems to stop it getting congested and to encourage new ones.

my cucumbers are massive

What sort are they? Some of the outside ones don't grow very long. But don't let them get too fat or the pips go hard.
