hydrangea - is it dead?

Posted: 30/08/2015 at 20:10

Our deer avoid hydrangeas - think they are poisonous to them.  Not sure about rabbits.  You could try protecting it with an upturned hanging basket until it gets going?

What a wonderful view Fairy. Lifts the spirits doesn't it

had my snooze .....glad to know it was good for me Steve309.  Now about to pour a glass of SB - which is less so......but feel I deserve it. Waiting for the forecast downpours to arrive ....and thinking of Chicklet in her tent.....or more accurately thinking of my poor washing machine

Back from glorious bike ride - i do love where we live  Went for coffee and cake in Alton, then wiggled back through Binstead, Selbourne and Kingsley.  Took a detour home past the Hostaman's garden, which is looking gorgeous, with lots of other things popping up in between his 3000 hostas. And now, time for a quick snooze

Foxglove seedlings ....when will they flower?

Posted: 29/08/2015 at 16:22

I sowed some foxglove seeds this May, and have pricked out seedlings into their own little pots....they are happily romping away

I know they are biennial, but does that mean they will flower for me in 2016 or 2017?

many thanks

Rain stopped play here. But not before I got quite a lot done.  Very pleased with my first "Kefidget" delphinium to flower .....seeds from KEF, from an original Fidget plant ......

 Think I might register for PBR
