Go Roger Goooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

ooops, sorry, nothing to do with gardening, but I am a bit excited

Plant names...not Latin or common but those named after people

I like planting plants with names that mean something to me - have nearly all the family represented in some way or other ..... even OH, whose name is not very flowery, so has to make do with a BigDaddy hosta.  My Megan's mauve agapanthus are just about to flower for the first time .... my niece will be delighted

KEF - your garden pickings sound fab - lovely to get reward for all the work we put in to our gardens

Bit late, but must get our box hedge trimmed today, plus a big deadheading session.  Hope to sneak some tennis watching in too.  No sign of the rain some are getting.

Went out to an old neighbours for drinks/eats last night and was able to take a bunch of sweetpeas as a present ..... made me ever so slightly proud

Whenever i have had wilt it affects the tips first, so you might be ok.  Might just be the older leaves getting a bit tired

my shrub from next door is not doing well

Looks like some sort of laurel possibly?

Happy Sunflowers

I used Westcountry once, and the plants were great.  However, won't use them again as you have to sign for delivery - no good for me.  Most companies are happy to leave things in a specified place.

Enjoy West Dean Woody - i always enjoy it there - weald & downland museum is fascinating too.  Have a good evening too ...... and all that jazz

Had lots of rain  But also now looks fine enough for me to get out there to do some serious tidying.  Enjoy the weekend .... chatting, cakes 'n all
