Mine is in the S - S - E facing corner with shade from big trees until mid morning and it's coping ok - not as fruitful as a friend's on a sheltered southfacing wall, but we can only work with what we've got - good luck

Perennial Geraniums

Yes, chop them down and stand well back

In my garden today?

Tomatoes tied and side shoots removed, all pots watered and fed as necessary. 

Pots on terrace moved about and rearranged trying to match aesthetics with individual plants' needs for sunlight/shade etc

Runner beans checked - we have beans 4" long!  Earlier than ever before! Dessert goosegogs almost ready, late sown peas have pods ready to fill up.

A good morning so far, apart from the hosepipe taking on a life of its own and soaking me  when I left it to fill a watering can - reminds me of when we were small and Pa turning the hosepipe on us on the lawn on days like this

Bargain!!!  It would've been rude not to!!!

I find John Innes loam based  and added horticultural grit about 1part grit to 3 compost works well.  Have you got a south or south-east facing spot for it? 

Storing Charlotte potatoes

Leave them in the soil and dig them up and use them as you need to - they don't store well.

What is this, please

One of the whole plant, one showing stems/thorns/leaves , one showing bud shape and one showing open bloom should do it
