The gardening club have all left, they seemed to like my garden and they've all had coffee and biscuits. Phew!

Not finished yet! Tomorrow morning a gardening club from Poitou Charente, about 40 of them, are coming to look around my garden. Have done a bit more weeding and planted a trough, then got rained on.

Oh dear! I've got all left behind again. My last post I said I was taking Matty to the airport and we took her yesterday and there have been pages here since.

After dropping Matty we went to a huge GC on the outskirts of Bordeaux, but they didn't have the rose or the clematis I wanted. Then we spent ages looking around Ikea and bought a few household things and some food. Got home just in time for Chelsea.

I agree with punkdoc about Dan Pearson. In the past, (not Chelsea, but other articles about his work) for my taste, Dan has used too many grasses. I prefer flowers. But the Chatsworth garden is brilliantly done and if you had seen the programme which featured Chatsworth you would realise what he was doing.

Crazyflower, it's a short lived perennial here, but cuttings take easily, which can be overwintered in a cold frame, GH or windowsill. Dordogne is usually colder than the UK in winter, often down to -7° to -10°. And we can have hard frosts and snow and violent rain! Summers are longer and hotter than the UK. Can be difficult to cope with when growing an English herbaceous border.
