I currently have 20 dozen touchwood  double pricked out into 3 inch pots.

I will bring some to Barnsdale, they are looking for a home.

Can anyone identify this flower for me please?

Can we see a picture of the whole plant and the leaves as well?

The "winky series" of aquilegia  have upward facing flowers.

Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

I'm not neat. I have every intention,,,, but then the sneaky plants get away from me with their exuberance.

Oak Tree shedding leaves

We had a tree surgeon in for the day to take dead and diseased wood out of our tree. Swinging around on ropes like a monkey he found diseased stuff that we couldn't see from the ground. He took photos for the tree preservation people at the council and removed diseased stuff. We were alarmed that a big branch that looked ok from the ground had a large rotting area at the top.   It cost 400 quid,we got a huge pile of chippings to use as  mulch, and peace of mind. There is a preservation order on our trees,but they still have to have diseased wood removed to keep them safe. They should be ok now for 20years or so.

And the rest of us in the frozen north (instead of sunny verdunland)have only just put the seeds in. Don't worry folks, still plenty of time to plant seeds and get a good harvest. My broad beans at  getting a good set of pods though.
