Chelsea Chop

I'm opening my garden in May so will chop afterwards. The main plants I chop are the very tall rudbeckias, such as "Goldquelle".

I love getting the 2 for 1 entry card and booklet on gardens to visit. I live in France and we go to England for holidays, always visit gardens. Pays for the subscription for the mag.

Looking up current additions to threads

Use it for rockery plants. Make sure the drainage hole is draining and put gravel around the plants.

What to do with this broccoli?

Looks like Purple Sprouting broccoli. Doesn't make dense heads, makes shoots with purple flowers. Pick the shoots and eat them, simmered for a few minutes, add butter. Pick off the flowering shoots, it should make new purple ones.

Is the plant festival in my direction DD? Have you been to the Floralies in Saint Jean de Côle? Think it's 9th 10th May.

Hosta, I noticed that Monty pronounced Knifophia in a way I've never heard of. When I lived in Kent up to 1985 it was pronounce knife o fia, Monty said niff offia. What do others say?
