morning all (said quietly, in little letters, so as not to wake Fidget up)

another week at the madhouse beckons 

Dull and grey here, after a lovely day yesterday - at least summer picked a weekend day to show her face.

be good everyone   Smilies are back 

foxglove and delphiniums

I'd wait until the autumn, when you know they are not going to be short of water to settle in. If you can see roots out the bottom of the pot before then, then I would move them to the next pot size - the bigger they are when it comes to planting time, the better.

Different answers for each . I put seed grown foxgloves in the ground in their first autumn, but grow delphiniums on in pots (keep moving them up a size when you can see roots poking out the bottom of the pot) until the frosts have passed next spring.

Amazing photo David - do they visit your garden often?

Your gardens are looking wonderful Winter, Dove, Runny, Lyn and Verdun. I do love other people's garden photos, so thank you for sharing.

Runaway melons Bob - do you think you'll get any fruit to ripen in there, or is it simply a bid for world domination?

Sounds like a good afternoon Fidget

Was a beautiful day here today - feeling pretty pleased that I cleared most of the visible weeds, plus a load of deadheading and a bit of pruning. Feeling a bit achey now ....out of practice with this gardening lark.

I've been up for hours too Fairy

Just spent one of those hours watching clouds of butterflies on our buddlejas - hundreds of peacocks, admirals, frittilaries, browns and whites. My ocd nature got the better of me in the end, and had to come in for my I-spy book of butterflies to identify them all.

Plan for today is to do all the things I failed to do yesterday

Hi David - think it is something to do with an advert the site has contracted to run at the weekends for a few weeks, which upsets it all. Dove knows more.

Btw, since you are looking in, just wanted to say I am growing half Eagle sweetpeas, and half other sorts.....the difference is staggering . Will definitely be going 100% eagle next year !
