Did you mean 'Begonias' Copperdog? The thread has been about Bergenias so not the same plant. 

Hazels' advice is good, that's what I do with them - I'm afraid I don't know anything about begonias though!

What a difference in just a couple of months BL! Looking very established and pretty already.

Hope you can keep the bindweed at bay though

Morning Joyce, and all those to come/afties Pat. Hope you're cosier today 

Off soon - not too sore, thanks Joyce!  

Hope you're a bit brighter today Wonks, and can enjoy some garden pix and some 'me' time 

I think your mum might feel slightly better too once those antibos kick in.

I'll have a quick look round before I head off

Have a great day everyone, whatever you're up to

They're on that golden Libertia in front of the Phormium, Joyce. First time it's flowered. I will have to chop the phormium back a bit to give it a bit more  room. It's really too small a space for them both, but I like the  contrast of foliage  


Looking good for tomorrow. Heading east of Fort Bill to Loch Treig - bit of a roundabout route via Spean Bridge/Roy Bridge to get there though!

Sorry to hear you're a bit 'off' Wonks. We're all here if you need to offload. 

There's some lovely garden pix to look at which might help to raise your spirits - Yvie started a thread with her lovely garden visits, and BL added to it as well. 

I'll bring you some fresh air and views  from the mountains when  I get home x  

Off to bed. Night all

Thanks Liri -  fog early on, sub zero till about midday, then looking fair afterwards, so should time it well enough for the summits.  

You can come and fill all the nail holes in my door surrounds if you have time.

I think that'll be an autumn/winter job - too much digging, building and border preparing to get on with outside. 

I have some fruits on my tomatoes, so I'm quite pleased.

Has doc gone on holiday? Did I miss that?  Haven't 'seen' him for a little while.

I'm just looking out the front window at one along the road from me. It's a good bit higher than the top of the front door, and that also has steps going up to it. It's at least ten feet, by about five feet diameter. 

They're big shrubs, given the right conditions. Ladybird's right - it will thank you for being in the ground and given room to thrive properly. They're ok in pots short term, but they aren't really ideal potted specimens long term.
