Hanging a Horseshoe

Posted: 04/07/2015 at 17:36

Yes, in East Anglia they always hang with the open bit at the bottom so the devil doesn't sit in it - or you get two and interlock them

What is this please?

Looks like a Philadephus to me too - possibly Belle Etoile.

harmful plants to cats

According to this site

gardenias are toxic to cats and dogs, horses and guinea pigs.

Hope that's helpful.

BL - my emails are playing up and I do accept PMs - I think there may be a problem with Outlook today.  Anyway, I received your email and have sent a text to your mobile number - hope you get it.  If you don't get it, yes, time and place fine - see you Thursday

Verdun, it's been very hot here today, 33.4C a bit earlier, and very muggy. 

It's the Lord Mayor's carneval parade through the city starting about now - no way am I going to stand in a crush of people in this heat - but I bet the waterslide down Rampant Horse Street is popular when it opens this evening!

BL - I've received your email but for some odd reason Hotmail is playing up and not letting me send any emails today   Can you send me a PM?  I've tried to send you one but it says you don't accept them.   I was thinkiing abut Thursday 1pm at the venue you suggested - can you just check the name of the village as you've written it wrongly - don't want us both going to different places! 

What is this please?

The first pic is of astilbes.

Can we have a close up of the leaves and flowers for the second pic please?

Sad looking honeysuckle

Posted: 04/07/2015 at 12:32

Yes, they're succumbing to powdery mildew because they're struggling due to drought at the roots. 

Honeysuckle are woodland plants and like cool damp roots and their faces in the sun.  Drench as Dave says - a dose of tomato feed wouldn't come amiss either.
