Morning everyone, had a busy week last week so have hardly posted.  Hasn't the weather been glorious?  I'm off today so some tidying to do and maybe go to B&Q to see if they've still got some half-price bedding left as there's a hanging basket that failed that needs filling again.......I've haven't told the accountant   Have a good day at work, Dove, and all those who have to slave away today (that'll be me tues and weds so I'm not being smug).

The enormous eucalyptus tree was finally chopped down on Saturday so now I have so much more light on one side of the garden - hooray! But I have a bed full of stumps now so pondering how best to get of them so we can have a vegetable bed next year......

Morning all, just got back from work.  Busy week, feel like I've been living there, been missing my garden badly, only been in it to do some watering.

Tina hope your son's op goes ok.

Mrs G, you need daylilies for this time of year.  My crimson pirate is flowering now, he's beautiful, will post pics later.  They're so easy to grow and give so many flowers, and almost impossible to kill.

Anyway off to bed for a few hours, can't sleep too long as I'm working tomorrow day as well so need to make sure I sleep tonight.

Take care all


Good Evening FORKERS

Evening all,been so busy the last few days have not had time to post.  Been spending the evening trying to catch up on threads.  Off tomorrow, got to get son ready for French trip weds then in the garden for me.  Sounds like you all enjoyed your cake!  Going out in a minute to deadhead and water, and might post a couple of new threads as I have questions, only minor ones.  Take care all, am so tired after lack of sleep last night it'll be an early night for me with a fan for company

My neighbour grows it in his front garden, it does get everywhere...I like it but I am always cutting it back through the fence.  I don't need to grow it myself, it can be useful when it spills over onto my garden to hide gaps, etc...  I agree with the other posters, just pull it up or cut it back, you won't kill it.....

The foliage is feeding the tubers/crown below the surface. I wait until its all dead then cut back.

Morning Bev and Dove.  Hope you both have a good day. I'm off today and tomorrow, going out for thai tonight and tomorrow afternoon is niece's 2nd birthday party, so I won't get as much time as I want in the garden, but hey ho..... still got some potting up to do and then lots of chopping stuff down in the back jungle.  Assistant Gardener/Accountant is back but he hasn't noticed extra plants yet...phew!  And my strawberries are ripening so will take pictures in a min and post on the garden gallery.  Peonies well and truly over now so time to deadhead as they're dropping petals everywhere.....  I'll be back on later, look forward to catching up with what everyone's been doing
