Just received my subscribers issue of Gardeners World magazine, I've subscribed for longer than I can remember and what a lovely  issue the August one is.

nice uncluttered cover with pictures of proplem solving to tempt you in.  I want to read it straight away but must keep that pleasure for later. What do others think or is it just me?

Hydrangeas don't mind the shade., it might be the hydrangeas have been forced into flower and now the flower has finished.if this is the case cut the dead flower off,look after the plants and they should be ok next year.
