That's the problem with tv programmes - they so rarely show you the tears and torment!

One of my newly planted honeysuckles succumbed to mildew earlier on this year and lost all its leaves  - my fault, I let it get too dry under the trees - but with more consistent watering it's growing healthy new shoots.  Don't worry, yours will survive - it's always a bit of a battle

Good morning Verdun -  that sounds like a gorgeous view you have there 

From the forecast it looks as if we're in for a humid day with showers and thunderstorms - I shall try to pop out between them and plant the new additions to the front border and do some deadheading. 

The lawns could do with mowing, but I don't think it's going to be dry enough.  They'll have to wait until later in the week as I'm visiting Aged Ps tomorrow. 

What's the star in your garden right now

Lyn, I remember the photo of when you'd just taken the hedge out - what a transformation! 

Hollows in fig tree branch stumps - a problem?

I agree - take it back - potential site of infection there.

Good morning all   

OL don't panic!  I may well have been wrong - it's not unknown   I've only very rarely had Blossom End Rot (well, my toms, not me ) - it doesn't look like what mine had but fingers are crossed - I can't see any  blight on the picture of your tom plant so I probably am wrong!  

Who knows their roses?

There are two types of secateur - Bypass and Anvil - there's an explanation here

Freaky Fennel

Yes, you have the 'herb' fennel - chop bunches of the leaves and use them in fish dishes.

If you don't want to look a 'wally' in front of your neighbours - now that you've dug it up, dry the stems and use them on a BBQ to cook some fish - it will give it a lovely flavour and it'll look as if that's what you intended all alone
