Is it too late to pot up?

Plant Pauper - I have no experience of them -  I take it you mean the Zantedeschia crowborough?  I'd say - yes but there might be more to them than that!

Start a new thread and you'll get plenty of advice.

Not sure if I can bear to watch the tennis - may have to watch through my fingers....

Hosta - I don't drink so wouldn't think to stop at pubs after a walk - usually just want to get home! Where you park at the Pentland hills there is a nice one though. I may do them as the walk - haven't really decided or thought about it much to be honest....

I should be doing housework but 'the boys' are calling me....

Do you want an early alarm call  Hosta?

I often don't eat much when I'm out LP. Depends on how long I'm out and what the weather's like! If it's nice - you stop more often to take photos and enjoy the views, but it's usually for a drink rather than food. If it's vile - you just get back to the car as quickly as possible and have your lunch there! 

Hope your hacking/slashing/burning/pruning goes well. At least the weather's looking favourable for it 

Don't watch Downton. I kind of missed the boat with that one  (thought it was a one off drama when it was originally trailed ) and don't have the time or energy to try and catch up!

Oooh missed that lily - apologies 

Have a great day - I'm sure you'll be spoilt rotten   

You're right RB- you can never have too much cake. Have another lily  



Can you move hostas at this time of year?

I think what we're saying is, Bob - get the chainsaw out

Great that you've got plenty of successful cuttings Lena 

The buddleias will cope with pretty much any treatment though 

Pruning after slug damage

My thoughts too Tetley. Not seen them being vulnerable to slug damage - and heaven knows - we have plenty of those here!  

They're usually quite pest resistant if they're well established. Possibly something else has been munching as it's a younger/smaller plant and more vulnerable. In pots, that's often the case.
