I was pulling up the wallflowers in the front garden when I found this handsome chap. No wonder the Hostas in that bed are so free from damage. Mr Toad the Gardeners friend

Hosta - where's the topsoil going?  Is that for between the polytunnels?

Lupin help!!

I would deadhead the lupin, then it'll bulk out rather than putting it's strength into producing seeds.  Then next spring you can take some basal cuttings - they'll grow true to the parent plant.  The plants grown from seeds may not be like the parent plant as they are likely to have been cross-pollinated.

Hosta - have you eaten anything since OH went Up Country? I'm sure he left you loads of meals.

Salt water gargling has been going on here for the past couple of days
