Plums Again

Posted: 22/08/2014 at 07:24

My favourite for a glut of plums is to halve them, remove the stone, then freeze on a tray.  Then you can bring them out, drizzle with honey and bake - delicious with ice cream

Bekkie - just responded to you on the phlox thread and it made me realise I don't know very much about your garden - do you have a GH or a cold frame?  And are you more flowers or veg??

phlox paniculata

Love my phlox - take no looking after at all and flower for ages. Here are some of mine this year ...

 Bekkie - not sure about specialist growers but hayloft do great deals on phlox (10 plants for £10 etc) - but you have to be prepared to grow them from bareroot.  They also take well from cuttings - can you beg some from your neighbour.  Do you have a GH?

Morning KEF.  I can't fleece a whole garden.  Looks like my late summer display could be rather short this year.  

Morning Bekkie - think we'll all survive a touch of frost better than the garden

Where did that reappear from? Emily is pretty, but not THAT Pretty

Just came on to say bumper hedgerow blackberry crop here too (actually its on my driveway - at least a bit of fruit compensates for the numerous pairs of snagged work trousers it gives me the rest of the year)
