Morning

Why does this time in the morning feel so much worse on a Saturday than it does on a weekday???

Heading off to catch our Plymouth train - will be looking in from time to time on the journey.

hope Spike is better this morning.

and hope the TWIGS have fun

How strange ... Seem to have the house to myself.  Both girls out, OH at the gym.  Settling down with a cuppa, and going to treat myself to some old Beechgroves, and some who do you think you are.  Never, ever normally get control of the remote .... now lets see if I can get it to work .......

Harvested this today.

Hope Frank and David are reunited soon

Verd - advance warning that I will be coming within shouting distance of Cornwall tomorrow (daytrip to Plymouth for another Uni open day - making good use of our railcards).  So if you could possibly let some of your famous sunshine seep into Devon, I'd be very grateful.  Tq muchly

Morning.  Just had a scan of the news headlines - the world is a scary place wherever you turn

Pdoc - great to see your Mum has regained some of her sight, and some of her spirit too. Really exciting news about your expedition - what an exciting way to use your skills.  Looking forward to hearing all about it, and all the build up too.

thunder, lightning and torrential rain seems to have passed through here now - yesterday was wild

Morning all

Now that the Cleve extravaganza is over I will start looking forward to my next gardening treat - which is a few days away in Essex - with Beth Chatto's and Hyde Hall thrown in for good measure ..... Fingers crossed for some sunshine.

but before all that ......best get off to work

HELLO FORKERS!

Back home - Cleve was wonderful.  Entertaining, really interesting, and came across as a really genuine guy.  Will never look at a Chelsea garden in quite the same way again.  Amazing how they all contain so many hidden details, and have so many people working behind the scenes.  Great evening.

Is it too late to cut back lavender?

Posted: 08/10/2014 at 19:07

I wouldn't expect more flowers til next year.  They look fine to me - don't cut back any harder now, or the coming frosts will clobber the new growth it stimulates and that could kill the plant.  You can give them another trim late spring next year if you want to tidy them more.
