Also I need a home for some spare cosmos.

OH is working all next week in Berkshire. Only problem is all hotels are fully booked because of Ascot week. So hes stopping at his twins all week. Which leaves me the small job of getting ready for the party on Saturday. Getting numbers of people coming is like herding cats. Somewhere between 14 and 40 is current best estimate. I might need Kef and co to come and drink 12 litres of Pimms. Now, how many sausage rolls do I need?

Anyone done any gardening today?

Planted the dahlias in the island bed, along with a few salvias( patens and african skies), eight delphiniums, and an odd penstemon red riding hood. I tied up the sweet peas again, and picked the first bunch for the house.

Then it started raining again.

Tall Verbena

Looks like Verbena bonariensis. I'd cut it down to about 2ft, just above a pair of leaves. It will flower later, but you will have more flowers.

How can you tell if manure is "well rotted"?

Posted: 13/06/2015 at 19:46

If its well rotted, i plant straightaway after forking it in.

Whats my name?

Looks like sweet corn or maize. Male flowers come out of the top first.

I used Jeyes fluid instead of water
