Is it this one Alan https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/details?plantid=3636 ?

Sunny?  Not here it isn't - overcast and chilly - we're heading into the city for a day of food and culture

 

Oh, and maybe a little bit of shopping

Woody   I'm glad you enjoyed East Ruston - I'm on the lookout for a fine day this month and I'll take myself out there for a day on my own just luxuriating - I might even take a sketch book! 

Shame you didn't have time to call in here for a scone - I made 11 pots of Raspberry Jam especially   However, I'm quite relieved that you didn't get to see my lawn edges

I've not been to Beth Chatto's for years and years and years - we must do that outing next year!

End of the season thoughts

I'm a bit behind the curve due to having injured my wrist, so still have loads to do - and I'm awaiting delivery of some native-type daffodils due any day now.  Loads of perennials are still blooming their socks off so I'm not cutting them back yet and I think there's at least one more meal coming from the runner beans. There's lots more seeds to sow and I've still not planted up any pots of bulbs  ........... busy busy busy

Compost Heap

I'm going to turn mine thoroughly in just the way you describe (when the Under gardener has time to help me ) and then I'll cover the heaps and leave them for the winter.  We'll  have a look in the spring and see how they're doing.

Advice please - a climber for fence

What's the soil like - sandy/loam/clay etc and do you know if it's acid or alkaline?

How big is the area you want it to cover?

You're suffering from the gardening addiction that affects the rest of us here Derek. 

My life is very difficult as my OH works next to the garden centre and I often visit him at work

Your other half will appreciate all your hard work in the spring when your garden is looking lovely.  Bulbs are such an easy way to bring colour into your life

Thanks fro asking - much more like me today - have done quite a bit in garden. Then stopped as don't want to aggravate the good that is happening. Don't want to be like that again 

Wrist and bruises improving??

Much better now thanks - a bit achey sometimes and knuckles still sore, but almost back to normal really.  OH takes good care of me   Apparently he's taking me out to lunch tomorrow 

Take care of yourself - concussion can be nasty for quite a while.
