Morning Clari ((hugs))

yes it's hard - but to change who we are and what we do is the aim of the terrorists. - we must not change

Yes seedlings or suckers from nearby trees. Pull or dig them out and keep an eye open for a recurrence in future years. If you get them put when they're smaller it'll be easier.

Morning all  ...  So much sadness 

Here in Norfolk the sun is shining and the sky is blue and the garden look beautiful in the low morning sunshine ... 

Today I shall pop up to the farm shop for food for the weekend, then potter in the garden ...

Glad the invalids are a bit better. 

Sluggy areas have been deluged with nematode spray ... that'll teach'em 

By the time I'd done all that and a bit of general tidying I decided that I needed to do some knitting on the sofa ... think I'm missing Wimbledon   Roll on Olympics

No - totally forgot it was on - hopefully Virgin has recorded it for me and I'll watch it tonight.  Was on phone to sister in law.  

I'm going to put nematodes on the veg patch as they've got my beans and I've had to replant, and also along the Shady Bank as they have had a go at the Blue Angel hostas   Hopefully one application will cut down the infestation enough to make a difference 

Please help I.D. this plant

One of the varieties of Philadelphus (aka Mock Orange due to it's beautiful perfume being like that of orange blossom).

Sounds like it needs a concerted effort by cleaner, newsletter lady and you to keep pointing out the problem ... nicely ... don't want to get into Pdoc's NDN situation. 

Just finishing my coffee and listening to Popmaster, then I shall mix and apply the Nematodes - slugs, they're coming to get you ......................................
