Identifying Calendula seeds

Many gardening videos on YouTube are made by people who know more about cameras than plants.

They are making vanity recordings of their own inadequacies and showing them to the world. 

Dont believe everything you see on the internet ... Check the source.

Good morning all  g'day Pat 

Dacha ... Me ... Sprinting genes ??? LOL ...  No way ... I was reasonable at slow and steady cross country ... But never competitive. I'd probably have been better at javelin but we didn't do it in our school. I was quite good at netball tho

So which discipline do you dream about Dove ?

See original post

 My son competed in the 100m for his local club  and school at county level in his teens so I love watching the sprints, but I'm gripped by all the track events and most of the field too ... and at the moment son is involved in setting up the Communications along the Mall for the Walking events on Sunday, so I shall be watching those ............ he did the Comms on Tower Bridge for the Marathon the other day, and has also been working on the sound system in the VIP area of the stadium so he's been surrounded by his heroes ...

In my experience it's not a deep rooted shrub ... I'd cut it down and dig it out.

It is a good product if only people would read the instructions first and carry them out to the letter. It only gives problems if people don't do that and so overdose. 

See original post

 Absolutely agree Hogweed ... used according to the instructions it's a very good product

Peony Leaves

 Peonies are one of the first plants to die down in the autumn and this year the seasons are coming a bit early, so I wouldn't worry ... the leaves are just showing their age
