Cauliflower conundrum

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 07:16

It sounds to me as if you should have eaten them by now - I'd get started making lots of cauliflower cheese - it freezes well

Who knows their roses?

Can't get anywhere with that link Snoodle 

This site has a similar search facility

Morning Stacey - my grapevine is at the back of the herb bed, so we've got thymes and sages around the base.  I think lavender sounds good - you could get some of the more unusual ones - I saw a low growing pale pink one the other day - looked lovely. 

Leggy Violas

I regard violas as a winter plant. They do tend to get leggy in the summer.

At this time of year I'd cut them hard back and re-pot.  

You can use some of the material you cut off as cuttings to increase the  number of plants you have 

Good luck

I've never had to deal with it myself thank goodness, but I hope this will be helpful

Good morning all   It's soggy here, but at least the wind has dropped.  Lots of tidying and staking to be done when it dries out a little.  

Panda - Hurrah!!! 

OL, hwk here today too - I need to get the polisher out and tackle the parquet - hasn't been done properly for ages.  

Verdun - glad you enjoyed your meal - is Mum going home today?

Flowers on the beach

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 06:11

I agree Salino - Sea Rocket.

There are quite a few specialist plants that grow on beaches, but they are getting rarer and rarer - it's lovely to find the quieter beaches where they can grow undisturbed 

Who knows their roses?

When taking your photo, please include pics of foliage and the shape of the buds and semi-open blooms - all can be helpful. 

I do hope your SIL is better soon.
