Get your flip flops and thong packed Hosta - and don't be coating yourself in olive oil...

Have a lovely time - send us a postcard. Do people still do that, or is it just me? 

I'm off to collect another knee brace soon. Sigh... 

My new knee brace arrived today - very attractive .......... not

We always send postcards when we're on holiday - we  singlehandedly  saved the Cornish Postcard Business this summer

And Rodgersias ..... how could you all forget to mention Rodgersias - a boggy spot in the sun - absolutely perfect for them, large leaved exotic looking perennials - real statement plants just made for your garden

Thyme and sedum - plant them out now?

Hellebore seedlings in winter

My hellebore seedlings spend the winter in small pots in a sheltered corner outside - the biggest threat to their survival is the attention of slugs and snails. 

Why has a thread disqppeared? Who decided?

OK - I'll put my hands up here - I felt that Buddyboy calling Jo a 'big mouth' and making other unpleasant attacks on her wasn't acceptable, so I asked Daniel to take a look.

No other reason.

Nothing at all to do with the subject being discussed - if you want to discuss Merit 75, neonicotinoids etc start another thread - I'm sure it won't be deleted unless people start bickering and making personal remarks.

That's a great new planting area Dove

All of that corner has been so dry it's been impossible to grow anything - now we can plan ......... and although it's a bit wide open, the view isn't too bad - I've watched sparrowhawks doing a courtship flight above those pines in the distance
