It's a damn fine emerald sward, Verd 

Who can name this clematis?

Posted: 01/10/2015 at 19:43

Very nice Daryl  - whichever one it is  

Many clematis are better in a little shade as the flowers don't fade so quickly. Give it plenty of food and water next spring to get the best from it.

Hosta - I replace my duvet every twenty years - whether it needs it or not...

Not a fan of roses but that deep pinky/crimson one is really beautiful Kathy. Some lovely planting  

Lovely pix LP - as always. Love that view through the gate 

Help with shrub ident

I'd second Iveyi. Mine didn't make it through the winter 

Nice shrub though

Evening all. Had a nice little walk after work and had my dinner (leftovers )- young Fairy cooked some bolognese for her and her sister. She did well, and older Fairy brought some fancy cakes home   

What a glorious day it's been here too 

You've all been very chatty - ovens not ovening, hedgehogs going awol, new duvets and pillows...and Hosta slumming it with Merlot...

Do you really replace yours twice a year RB? 

Glad the flitting went well Dove. Do you use that expression?  I love painting too but it's a bit far for me to go with a roller.... I'm a bit pernickerty too...  

Moving of Plants/Trees

Preparing the new site well, and getting as much rootball and surrounding soil out when you move them, will make a big difference Ritchie. They won't have had time to get massive by then, so they should be fine

Morning all - another misty start but not as pea soupy as yesterday and the sun is coming through  

I'm a champion chucker-outer. Oldest fairy will come home to an empty room if she doesn't tidy up soon... Not the first time I've done it...

Lesley - I hope you're not buying in to the 'mean Scot' stereotype with hubby re the 'replacement Valentine' tree 

Having a short walk after work with one of the girls coming with me next week. Think she's slightly worried about her fitness for the hills....

Off for a quick look round before I go as I wasn't on much last night. Watching Collision - anyone seen it? Excellent. See you all later - have a good day

Boiling sets blood stains Hosta. Better to wash a couple of times after doing the soaking in salt.  I sometimes do that a couple of times too. With three women in a household - I'm used to that...

Thanks for PM - will reply to all later 

Glad you stayed calm doc - not easy though 

You must be relieved Yvie - awkward with the sleeping arrangement though
