Jeannie - if your friend was able to help - I can go to Cheshire if necessary. I'm a single mum too but my girls are older so it's no prob for me to do this over a weekend if necessary. My car's big enough to take  a fair amount of plants.

Sorry KEF  

MrsG's was worse though....

I think the sun is starting to come out so I should go and get a few things done before the next load of rain arrives

Planting out Sweet Peas

To be honest David - I usually sow direct and the only reason I sowed a few in pots last weekend was because I was struggling to get outside because of the rain and I also haven't got the big pot ready yet that they're going into...too many other things to do    


Perhaps I might get that done this weekend - when it stops raining! 

How's the new garden going Hollie?

rosemummy -  Camellias and Rhodies grow perfectly well in neutral soil. There is a bit of a misconception about this. I have neutral soil here and the inherited rhodo at the front door was covered in blooms last year :

I've usually done it later in the year - wouldn't have thought there would be enough growth to get a reasonable size of cutting Daintiness. If you've something big enough though, why not try it anyway!

Watering it lots will help dilute it and, although it's few weeks ago since you applied it, that's the best approach. It will recover Domino - it might take a little time. I've overdone the stuff in the past too - it's an easy mistake to make.

Just do a rain dance - I can send you some - plenty of the stuff here!
