You might be better off getting in touch with DEFRA. They will give you advise as to what to do and how to go about it. Here is a link to their site Flumpy.

This is their email address    igcb@defra.gsi.gov.uk 

Please let us know what happens, good luck.

I have just read this post, I do hope everything works out for you flumpy. We have a wood burner and the chimney is lined. When it is lit you can't see any smoke coming from the chimney. I can not understand why people today have to be so horrid, if you were our neighbour and said that to us there would be no problem at all, it would be sorted. Some people have no consideration for others at all, it is so sad. Good luck Flumpy.

Hardy Chrysanthemums

I have never grown Chrysanthemums at all. I saw this one in Lidl and it looked so lovely I had to have it. I'm not sure if they are truly hardy, I have had a hunt on the internet to try and find out some info and like you say they are described as half hardy. They like a sunny spot and may need staking from the Autumn winds we sometimes get and you can take cuttings from February to May. Hope yours survives and gives you plenty of flowers. Good Luck.

I have just bought a Chrysanthemum from Lidl, it is huge. I am going to put it into a bigger pot and pop it into the greenhouse at night and bring it out in the morning just in case it doesn't like the cold nights. I do hope that I can keep it going for a long time.

Stood in my back garden watching for the Vulcan Bomber, didn't see the Bomber but saw this little beauty resting on my sweet peas, what a treat.

I have grown Dahlias again this year and they are doing really well. The head broke off so I put it in a saucer of water to keep it going.

Mine didn't come to anything either, grew a to a few inches then just died. Shame, because they are pretty.

I love your country, my husband and I have been many times staying at Duinrell, Wassenaar. What awful weather you have had. So sorry your garden has been so badly damaged but glad you are all safe and well.
