Verdict....your new plants this year

Posted: Yesterday at 23:15

I've been very pleased with my foxgloves,even though they won't flower until next year. The Cosmos went berserk,loads of blooms and growing my own toms for the first time 

The Sunflowers which were a damp squib as ever they are when I try to grow them. I think I'll just give them a miss from now on. The Larkspur - looked great on the seed packet but a slug magnet and can't help thinking of them as a poor man's delphinium. I think maybe I was expecting too much... 

Football season - 2014

Stoke away will be tough Bob but your following match should be 3 points 

Congrats to Liverpool David,though you do seem to win at Tottenham in recent seasons?

Your words regarding Everton are kind. However,as you pointed out, conceding 6 goals suggests we have problems at the back. That's 10 in three games now. I think our problem is having two full backs in Coleman and Baines who spend all their time attacking,an out-of-sorts Jagielka and a 37 year old Distin. Not to mention Tim Howard who appears to have left his head at the World Cup. Maybe Martinez needs to bring in John Stones even though he's only 19.

New garden new start... Fingers crossed

Well knock me down with a feather SweetPea - I was only asking about you yesterday and here you are 

Sometimes a blank canvas is the best option as you can do what you want. We live in rented accommodation too (Housing Association) and when we moved in the garden was basically long dead grass and thistles. There's such a lot you can do there

A lovely pond Peat and everything wildlife could ask for. Lots of surrounding vegetation to give little frogs lots of cover

Lyn - your pond looks brilliant and is bigger than mine,so well done you as well 

Peat - my pond is a pretty simple affair when all is said and done. And wildlife doesn't discriminate,water is water and your pond is just as welcoming to a frog.

Anyway,a dam busters raid suggests you have a reservoir!!
