Thalictrum flavum, or possibly T. sphaerocephalon

Both have yellow fluffy flowers and aquilegia like leaves.

Little hedgeehog who went to hedghog hospital on Friday,died on sunday night.

Work has had internet down for a week, because of storms last weekend. 300m of cable have been replaced, and we're waiting for a man to plug it in at the exchange

The amount of aggro,because stuff has been loaded on to the internet at one end, and we cant download at this end, is unbelievable. Tomorrow I might go down the exchange and plug it in myself. Apparently we are "Not priority" When I asked for compensation for a weeks lack of service, , the man who is "managing our expectations" said he would escalate the problem to a manager. Sod the manager, find a telecoms engineer.  Grrrr.

Large glass of white wine needed.

What to grow under eucalyptus tree?

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 19:52

A large phormium lived under my eucalyptus for many years until the really bad frost got it. Its coming back slowly from the rootstock.

Are these wild raspberries?

Looks like a raspberry. Wild raspberries are not likely to give a good crop. You would do better buying in some virus free raspberry canes.

They are propagated by dividing the roots and replanting.

Planting in Dappled shade

Look at Longacre plants (plants for shade).

I am developing a bed of Roscoeas in a bed in the dappled shade of pear trees.

I had excellent service from this company. Ordered one day and delivered by courier at 9.30 next morning. Good packing and excellent plants.

No, fairygirl. Lots of pit moggies, who spend their working lives underground, and when they see the sun, it affects the brain.

Please help me before I do something I regret !!

If its on their side, there is nothing you can do. If it knocks a fence over, it's not a good fence to start with. If it pushes the new fence over, give them the bill for repair.

If its creeping under the fence on to your side, spray anything on your side with glyphosate.
