On Sedums - i have a few pinky ones (autumn joy and an unnamed donation from my Dad, which originally came from my Grandad's Liverpool garden .... I think i will call it heirloom) .... But I would like to add a really dark red one - any recommendations anyone??

Morning Peeps .... Looks promising out there.  A day of garden pottering calls - bliss.  Loving that border Ggirl - you've been busy again.

Lily - wish I'd been good and raked acorns last autumn - might have been slightly less saplings if I had.

Loved West Acre - well worth a visit if you haven't been before.  Plus came home with a bootful of plants that are all thriving one year on

Great bday tree Panda - makes a striking feature. And lovely flowers LPilly - although hope they are wrong about the frost.

fabulous day at the zoo (i kid you not) - but now exhausted.  Lovely to see teenage girls SO enthusiastic about stuff (they seem to no longer care if its cool to get excited) - and so many tiny babies to see.   Baby meerkats are soooo cute.  Thats enough now, back to the gardening tomorrow

Hi Dove - i used to have problems logging in here with an iphone or ipad.  I found if you open the site using Safari rather than Google the problem goes away - no idea why it works, but you might want to give it a go

When should I plant Phlox

Woody - i think you could do either, but i would go for autumn planting.  My logic would be that these are not young fragile plants, but ones that are well acclimatised to the conditions of your garden (they've lived there a while) so they should settle in fine.  If they were young plants from a nursery, i might be tempted to mollycoddle until spring.

Happy birthday littlest Fairylet

Sunshine here but no gardening today.  Littlest chicklet and her friends (15 years young, all of them) have requested a trip to the zoo!!  Marwell is not far from us, and have a very little baby leopard that has been on the news.  So i'm taking them, armed with a pile of papers from work that have to be looked at some time this weekend - might as well do it at the zoo

Gardening tomorrow - need to get my new crocosmias in the ground and have another session digging up oak saplings - definitely my worst weed of 2014.

Will be following the new thread David

Interesting about the scent of the blue ones - I had some this year, and they started off smelling lovely, but ended up so rank that the chicklets evicted them to outside the back door

Liri - I find cleaning bathrooms shifts most things on my hands.  Normally do them late on Sunday evening after a weekend in the garden - then I am presentable for work on Monday.  Don't like to think too carefully about what the active ingredient might be in Mr Muscle (other cleaning products are available) - but it does the trick
