It's been cold and mizzly here all day - I've been on the sofa with my knitting and the Cheltenham Gold Cup. 

Pork chops, braised fennel and jacket potatoes have been eaten - OH is washing up - I'm waiting for GW on the telly - I might have a little doze first ...

Is Hosta still under that hedge?

The herbaceous ones don't climb so I think they'd work well there.

Boggy rocky mess!

Grafting

Has to be plants of the same family.  Roses onto roses, apples onto apples etc.  Pears can be grafted onto quince 'cos they're closely related.

Found you in my Junk file


 


 Lovely!  It's a hydrangea of one sort or another

Cut last year's flowerheads off just above a pair of fat green buds - scatter some Fish Blood and Bone or Rose Fertiliser on the soil around it and hoe it in lightly.

When it flowers we'll have a go at telling you a bit more about it.

It likes to be in semi-shade but can cope with sun as long as the soil doesn't dry out, and it strikes easily from cuttings.
