Rhodos grow like weeds up here Tads - loads of rain and clay soil! It will be perfectly happy in the ground. A bit of shade is best but if they have the right conditions they'll grow well in sun too. 

It's my birthday

Morning all. Shaping up to be a beautiful day here  but a bit brisk 

Shame I have to work 

Hosta - do you have flippers and a snorkel?  

Pat - the weather in this country can be wildly different - even within a few miles. Small island stuck in the path of the Atlantic!  What would we talk about if it was Mediterranean all the time though eh? 

Is you appointment two thirty Verd? 

I'll get my coat...might need it as I'm off to put the washing out

Hosta - I was being naughty 

Off to bed for me now - I need my beauty sleep. See you all tomorrow

Hi Tads - do you replace some of the soil each year? It may well have used up all the nutrients in the pot. It may well be all roots and very little else if it's been in the pot for a long time. Alternatively, has it had enough water and food? If it's dried out at any point it would struggle to recover. They're not the best shrubs for keeping in pots long term.

Made all the difference Liri - as you know only too well!

It's like carpets in loos. Why did anyone think that was a good idea?....

At least once the roof's on the weather won't be so much of an issue. Hopefully the men can crack on with it then

What a lovely set of pix Hefty.  That first one could be a painting. I really like the moth too. 

That squirrel's having to work hard for his tea
