How much....

I got mine free when I was 18 . My grandad bought it (Black morris minor deluxe with grey leather seats but no seat belts) when I was three months old. He only used it in the summer, the rest of the year he used his business volkswagon van. So when I got it it had less than 50, 000 miles on the clock.  I used it for five years, then when I got a company car, my brother had it. He took out the 948 cc engine and put an 1100 in. He got quite adept at changing engines, gear boxes, and a back axle.  He had it for another four years.   We found the original receipt.  £504.

What is this please?

Get them in their final positions, and then give them a good watering in.They are biennial and need to make good root systems before next spring.

Is this an underground weed?

I think alstroemeria from the leaves.  Easier to eradicate than bindweed.

Time to give them a nudge and drag them into the 21st century, Clarington. Most people pay by BACS these days. Practically instantaneous. Apart from one person I work for, who likes to pay me in cash to save him having to bank it. When I take it to the bank, they look at me as if I have been working on street corners. I think I prefer snotty clothes shop assistants who treat me like a bag lady. Amazingly, if I go shopping directly from work, in a suit, they can't fall over themselves fast enough.

Once they start forming the black seeds, the plants die off as they are annuals. Collect the seeds and sow next spring for more plants next year. Seeds dropped in the soil now will overwinter and flower earlier than a spring sowing.

 This was a rooted cutting I bought in February. I potted it into a 6 inch pot, then into this pot. It was kept in the frost free greenhouse, and then unheated polytunnel until late June.

 Gladioli are three tied back to back with raffia, then dahlias around the base. This colour will be over by october, but I hope I will have buddy which is yellow, also coral ruffles.  The dahlias may get changed for chrysanths or cosmos.   Experimenting, if I put the gladioli in as soon as the first floret is starting to open, they look their best about 4 days later.
