What is your weather like?

Posted: 24/08/2016 at 07:34

Yesterday it was 31.9C in the shade here in Norfolk and the temp dropped overnight to 16.1C.  

We have hazy blue skies and sunshine at the moment and it looks like another lovely day.  

Please help identify this plant

It looks like  Allium sphaerocephalon to me.

I.D. Please

Privet. Probably just a different clone to the others. 

Is my sprouting broccoli beyond saving?

When did you sow the seed for these broccoli plants?  This year or last?  If you sowed the seed this year they shouldn't be producing flowering shoots until next spring. 

Fruit Trees from seed (of the more exotic form)

You can grow all sorts of citrus as well as avocados from supermarket saved seed, but you're unlikely to get fruit on them anywhere in the UK.

You could paint them with yoghurt to encourage lichens and mosses to grow on them

Buddleja is only invasive if you don't weed your garden. 

When you know you've bought the wrong one

Gave the almost brand new all singing all dancing Dyson to Wonky 'cos I was fed up with it and her Lovely Hub liked the tech look of the Dyson.  

We bought an ordinary Panasonic like we used to have to replace the Dyson and I love it.

A few months later and Wonky bought a Henry to replace the Dyson ... don't know who she gave the Dyson to.

31.9C in the shade in my back garden ...

If you want it really thick I'd cut the whole thing down to about 18" high, and then it'll bush out from the bottom as it grows ... but you'll have to forgo the privacy for a few years ... your choice.
