Not sure I'd call Panda's Dublin trip a holiday. If I recall correctly she will be accompanied by hordes of excitable Girl Guides, that she will have to keep under control. That's my idea of heroism.
its the weekend .....yippeeeeeeeeee
And those nice train people have decided not to strike on the day we are going to Chelsea (would have totally scuppered our plans, so we have been on tenterhooks) ............double yippee
I agree with Blairs - only move it to a slightly bigger pot. You should do this before July, as it will want to put out new roots to fill the space before next winter comes. If you use too big a pot, or do it too late in the growing season then it might exhaust itself trying to reach its goal (Sounds mad, but was the advice I was given by an acer nursery at Hampton Court show a few years ago)
Frances - its looking stunning - I love the clematis in the pot too. Great to see it smothered in flowers from top to bottom. Love what you have done to your space too WillDB
Sweet little chicks Frit - look like they are doing well
Hope your open day goes well on Sunday Lizzie - remember to take lots of pics so that those of us on the other side of the channel can have a virtual visit. And hope you haven't done too much damage to your ribcage - sounds painful.
You're right Hosta ....you'd think by now they would have found a better way of finding out what people know
OL - yes, we are in the midst of exams too. Good luck to your big boy with his. Spent last night testing her on chemistry, which is today's delight. As for exams myself, i absolutely dreaded them. Used to actually make me sick. Its funny, nothing else in life has ever had quite the same effect on me.....so glad they are in my past (although, 30 years on, i still get the odd nightmare where I'm sitting in an exam room realising I have revised the wrong subject)
Now I'm off to give the GH a quick check before launching into the rest of my day
Morning Dove - enjoy Cromer .....beautiful day for it.
We always seem colder than the surrounding area ....we have our own microclimate (Not sure if thats something to be proud of). I always subtract a few degrees off the forecast to be safe. Very often we find our magnolia and pieris have been turned to brown mush overnight, when those at the top of the hill remain looking glorious
Morning all Congrats to the dry stone walling champion
Didn't actually freeze here, but GH thermometer is saying 0.5* , so glad I bothered with the fleece. Had to squeeze some of my plantlings under the propagator lids, they've got so big. But skies are blue, and it looks like a good day in store. Off to London today, so a train journey to look forward to
Think we're getting it twice Dove ...a double dip depression
