It would be interesting to see if it sets seed and then comes true. You might have t&m beating a path to your door.

I have a patch of carex comans bronze. My mum thought they were dead. So much for the artistic bronze colour.

Try digitalis monstruosa.

It has the flattened flower at the top, but seed does not seem to be available, so maybe it's just a fasciation

I pinched out all the squash tendrils that escaped the patch( 4m x 3m) except the one trying to get to the dahlias over the fence, and two that are now 6 ft up a hawthorn hedge. I have over 20 that have set, currently mostly like cricket balls but three football size. When can I start using them? Do I have to wait until all the leaves die off?

Its been sunny here all day. Maybe hurricane balderdash has burnt itself out.

After saying that I'll probably find the polytunnel on the garage roof tomorrow.

Damsons aren't ready here. If anyone local to Notts/derbys border has 10 lb or so going spare...... I'd be interested.
