Sequestered iron really perked mine up this year - but you sound like you are already giving them that.  Epsom salts sprayed on the leaves was another recommendation i had.

I have just made liberal use of the ignore button.  Should have done it weeks ago.  What I can't see won't bother me.

Me too - feel utterly dejected now.

Morning all - haircut this morning, bulb planting this afternoon.

Just read the BBC storm news and they are warning people to stay away from woodland areas.  But I live in one

Matty - was the aster garden on GW the one you posted pics of a couple of weeks ago - it looked familiar......

Lily - there are some stunning trees for autumn colour in GC's at the moment - check out amelanchier, golden maple, liquidamber as well as the acers (osakasuki is great). You don't have to buy now, but you can make a note of the names of the colours you like best.

Good to see you Gardening Grandma ! Pop in and say hello from time to time. Glad your garden is being appreciated - pics you have posted on here have always screamed "cottage" to me - lovely.

Mrs G - lovely to see GH and glad bulb planter has arrived GArdengirl, hope that arm is better soon.

Some very sad work tales - seems a common theme unfortunately. I am lucky - i love my job - but i learnt a long time ago that work colleagues are exactly that - very few of them are true friends when you no longer have the daily contact and work things in common. Thats why i cherish my real friends and family.

OH has been busy creating me gifts for the garden (give a man a welding machine and its amazing what results). If it doesn't rain tomorrow i will proudly post pics

Lovely Ann - all those apples brought a big grin to my face

No pictures to share, but i am currently looking out of a train window, and the colours on the trees are beautiful - is this the peak of Autumn do you think??

Never worked out what it was for - seems random. Funny though, i don't even notice it anymore - clever how the brain filters out that which is of no use !!
