Fairy - its looking fab, fab, fab  All that work is really paying off - you must be so pleased.  I remember the "before" pics, so know just what a difference you have made - you're a star

Love liatris too wintersong - dramatic flowers that hang around for ages.  Whats the little tangerine flower in the first pic ??  Whatever it is, its going on my list !!

lovely upcycling lesley - love a bit of quirkiness in a garden, especially when its your secret

Lots of recharging going on here - just been for a trip to get our toenails painted (complete with little flower and everything) so can't put gardening shoes on til tomorrow for fear of smudging.  Sun has made an unexpected appearance, so sitting witha cuppa and a GW mag

Got my Dad staying for the weekend and he wants to visit a local GC (sister has a birthday coming up!) so might mosey along there later .....

Maybe you should aquire some dwarfs to keep the fairies in check - i have heard they can become quite unruly if left to their own devices

Should i top my tomato plants?

Posted: 19/07/2014 at 09:30

Depends on the variety, but most people say top them out after 5 or 6 trusses, to let them concentrate on the fruit that is there.  Having said that, i never count trusses, but top them once they hit the GH roof

grasses

Grasses v popular, but missed this thread last night

Great pics - stipa gigantica with its oat flowers is still my favourite though - sort of floaty  Like it with verbena bonsariensis too.  Ours has yet to flower this year though.
