I don't think that osteospermum is usually hardy, Steve. This last winter has been so mild a lot of tender plants have survived, whereas normally they would have succumbed to frost. I have a row of argyranthemum that I expected to die but is about to flower. Normally you would take cuttings in Autumn to overwinter for the following years plants.

It might be easier to do cuttings from an established plant, also in well drained compost.

I think a tent like thing hanging from the tree will make enough of a statement. Cream will soon get filthy.  Red I think is too much. It will hang where there used to be a child swing, the ropes are still there. I think we will have to have a garden party to christen it.

Following on from the new herb bed and a rim (raised bed?) around last years onion bed, steps are now being modified, to steps with a ramp in the middle for the wheelbarrow. The trouble with terracing a slope is wheelbarrows  dont like steps.

 The trouble with engineers is everything has to be perfect and gets overengineered.

My raised bed has metposts with 3 inch sq posts in each corner. It should stand an invasion of triffids.

Also, Oh has decided that maybe I can have a cacoon to hang from the oak tree, so I can loll and look at the garden at the same time.

I'm thinking a green one, what do you think.?
