Oooh Tetley - nylon knickers!!!  thank goodness we're no longer wearing undies made from the by-products of the petro-chemical industry.

Can't blame the EU for that one. 

 

On another note, it does seem strange to me that I keep coming across people who seem to be deciding on their vote on party lines  i.e. Vote out to kick the Tory government in the teeth

The thing is, the Labour Party have always supported Britain remaining in the EU.

I don't do a routine pruning - only cut back the long reaching tendrils when there's no where for them to go. 

At this time of year a good dose of Fish, Blood and Bone will help, and has been said plenty of water in the summer.

If the container is big enough and the compost is loam-based, have a look at the Clematis alpinas - many of them are happy on north facing walls.

Have you read Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach? All about the breeding and trading of rate tulip bulbs in Amsterdam in the 17th century and the fortunes won and lost - brilliant!

It's good that Gardeners can touch the ground isn't it? Straightening up without clutching the small of your back and groaning is even better

Are these Cosmos seedlings leggy?

Mine were in the mini greenhouse last night - we had a frost and there was ice on the lid this morning.  The cosmos were/are fine.

But I bring the tomatoes in overnight.

We've had lamb tonight too - lovely local lamb chops, crushed baby potatoes and chopped red onion sprinkled with olive oil and crisped in the oven with some fresh thyme, and a big helping of purple sprouting broccoli from the garden.
