Hello GWRS - I didn't know you live in Lincoln - do you ever go to that Pie place by that steep hill - I hit my head on the beam when I went down the stairs - can't remember much about the pie - must go back again some time

We're in Norfolk and I don't plant anything out until the first week in June - this year we're going to Cornwall for that week so they may go out a week late ................ or shall I risk planting out a week early?????????????

Transplanting Delay = Stunted Tomatoes, Or?

Think they're around San Diego Hosta

I agree with you - the tomatoes will grow just fine

I think it's Morning Glory (Ipomoea purpurea).

Thunbergia leaves are coarser-looking and have a slightly toothed edge, in my experience.

Yes you can get white or purple honesty. There's also a variegated one.

Which shrub to choose

And what about a weeping broom like Cytisus scopiarus 'Golden Cascade' to trail over those concrete walls and break them up a bit, as well as keeping the bees very  happy and perfume your whole garden.

Agree with Nut.

 

  1. Lovage - wonderful in salads, soups and stocks
  2. Honesty
  3. Mallow - looks like the weed rather than the more desirable forms.

AND ... if we wanted to grow it in our veg patches, what's the betting slugs and snails and caterpillars would love the leaves, and vine weevil grubs would eat the roots
