Well I got not a lot done today.

Went shopping, picked up tiles for the kitchen, went to brothers to retrieve hedge trimmers. went to mums to collect metal dustbin to keep bird food in and rodents out. Got back to watch tennis.

Nothing on telly again.

Its raining again. bit depressing at the moment, the gardens a right state.

How about "The Mad Hatters."  or Le Chapelier Fou   Based on the mad hatters tea party in Alice in Wonderland. Waitresses dressed as Alice. Proper tea service... china teapots. and cups and saucers.  Out of fashion now, so China tea services are available quite cheap on ebay or through local auctions, or  charity shops.  I'm assuming that the French know the story of Alice in Wonderland. I would have thought Disney would have sorted that.

Peg a few long shoots into the soil around it. They should root. That will give you back ups if the old plant dies.

If you cut the top out , it will bush from lower down. Flowers will be a bit later, but you will get more overall.

Just a Lily, woo hoo !

This was taken mid July last year. The ones in the pot are still growing and have buds. The others out of the batch that I planted in the garden flowered last year, but disappeared over winter.

Pigeons vs Brassicas

Posted: 02/07/2016 at 17:06

An air rifle is useful.  We shoot any wood pigeons that come onto the lawn. They will decimate any brassicas at any stage. Keep them netted. Also old compact discs dangling on strings seem to help deter them.

Does anyone know what this is please

Rudbeckia goldsturm doesn't seem to run in my soil. The clump is not thickening up as fast as I would like it.
