If you want to plant straight away, I would put them on the compost heap,mixed up with other stuff.

We have had four phone calls today by the man who is "managing our expectations". I've never heard such a load of management speak Bull **** in years. Give me someone who speaks plain English anyday.

Can anyone ID this plant please?

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?

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?

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 15:50

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.
