Bit small for cosmos.  I think more likely to be a white bidens. Have a look at Bidens. "Pirate pearl" on thompson and morgan website.

DD, I know how you feel. Himself knows he has to lose weight, and I've given him a lot of leeway recently, but the new kitchen will need locks on food cupboard doors. There are now no biscuits or cake in the house. If you're hungry , eat an apple. We have a fridge full of them.

Liri, I feel for you. (Hugs)

Hubbys mother had alzheimers for over ten years. His fathers sister  was diagnosed later with vascular dementia, but went downhill a lot faster. His paternal grandmother also had some form of dementia. With it on both sides of the family, all in females, if there is a genetic link then I think his sister will be hoping a cure can be found soon.

My sister has a sign in her kitchen....Adventures before Alzheimers. Ever since she jumped out of a plane to do a tandem parachute jump, at the age of 56, my great neice calls her Supergran.

I'm off to work. Play nicely ,folks.

Sarah Raven recommends Clematis montana wilsonii, for perfumed white flowers, flowering in May.

If you go to Taylors clematis website, you can search by colour. They give a lot of info regarding size and spread, and flowering times.

Montana are among the first to flower. I would call them spring flowering. One would cover that space, I have one that goes up 20ft into a hawthorn.

How much heat can you provide?

It must be more cost effective to buy new plants each year.

Whats wrong with this cucumber?

Cut it off and throw on the compost heap. Unless you have a lot of heat on in the greenhouse, it's time to clear out the greenhouse for winter.
