One of the other members here (Hostafan) hails from the west of Scotland and now lives in Devon. I don't know... becoming 'soft southerners'....

I've no intention of heading south...in fact, I'm thinking of going further north eventually!  

a question about buddleia (the butterfly bush)

Posted: Yesterday at 21:50

They take a couple of years to reach full maturity and height, assuming you start with a decent sized plant at around 2 to 3 feet,  in a 6 to 7 inch pot. 

They require pruning early in the  year, and they then flower on the new growth. Once they're settled, that growth will be anything from four to six feet, or even more, depending on the conditions you have. Even a cutting taken this year will produce a flower or two next year and it will only be a small plant.

Actually, now I look at it, I don't think it's Niobe - the petals look a bit too rounded. 

Rouge Cardinal is very free flowering. I had it in a previous garden. Lovely plant. Delightful anyway, whatever it is!   

I'm assuming from your forum name you're in Fife?

Hey Flyfifer, do you like Honeysuckle by any chance?   

Lovely pix.  Particularly like the 'view' into your gravelled area. 

Is that Niobe? One of my faves.

Fishy - I bought a packet of Harebells this year as I love seeing them on the hills in summer. I've got a good lot all growing away. 

If you'd like some, I'd be happy to send them to you. There's more than I'll ever use!

I'll see it on the review prog Dove. He looks like a lovely guy.

Evening all. A downpoury kind of day but at least it was slightly warmer.

Had to go to B&Q after work but older fairylet made dinner so that was a bonus. Did 'the lad' get beaten Dove? Not seen or heard yet. I'm making an assumption though  

He was so thrilled the other day, and his supporters too. It was a great match too, and a well deserved win. 

doc- it's such an unpleasant situation. Think you're handling it extremely well. If you get the jump on him by contacting the police first, it makes a big difference, especially if you 'keep the heid' ...

I now have a bed to sleep in  - may even sleep in it tonight! 

I'll have to rig up a curtain though. Don't want to frighten the natives...   

Breaded Iris Question?

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

DD - I would have had a relatively good split from my husband. Unfortunately, the new partner decided HE was in charge and made things far more protracted and difficult than they would ever have been. In the end, it cost me a lot more financially, not to mention the stress involved being caught between a rock and a hard place all the time. 

I had a good family solicitor so there are some out there! I don't know if there's a similar structure in France regarding the different types of lawyer. It might be worth while writing down your thoughts about what you ultimately want, and how to go about getting it,  so that you can then make  a list of questions to ask your lawyer.   

Sadly, even the most reasonable people can end up 'fighting over the teaspoons'.
