Now we've just got to set a date for the trip. A middle of the week in mid June ok for everyone? Let me know by pm days you can't do. Hemerocallis should be out by then. Mine are just budding up.

Anyone got a, long range weather  forecast? We don't want a repeat of the hodsock fiasco weatherwise.

Mine prefer lidl cheapest to aldi cheapest. Though aldi is 20p dearer. Bitter rather than lager.

My friends daughter, living on her own in a flat, told someone on Facebook that she was going on holiday. The day after she left, she got burgled. She didn't have much before, even less when they'd done.  It could be coincidence,but.....

Perennial rudbeckias left in the ground overwinter have been decimated by slugs. I dug the remains up, potted and moved into TLC area.

 Cherry brandy and cherokee sunset I treat like annual bedding. Space at least a foot apart.

I spent today moving staging out of greenhouse, staking tomatoes which had got to the floppy  stage, and found four roscoeas coming up in a pot. Then I found the roscoea seeds i sowed last year have started to germinate. Little broad leaves all over the tray.

I've also killed a lot of big fat black slugs and stamped on a lot of snails.
