What is this Cape Verde plant please?

I am sure the second one is a Bird of Paradise tree - Caesalpinia gilliessii. My neighbour tried to grow one down here in SW France, but it died the first winter, but then she did plant it in a north facing spot! I think the first picture is also of the same family. Beautiful flowers but I don't think you would have much luck with it outside in the UK.

Set up a nature view camera and you will then see what is digging the hole.

French gardeners - do you know this viburnum?

I can only find it listed on our french sites as a Prunus as Ladybird says. Maybe BL can come up with something else. I will keep trying!

Deformed carrots

I grow carrots in raised beds with an irrigation system. I too have sometimes had carrots that look like this but not all of them. Maybe it is something to do do with the irrigation/water supply?

Hi Paula, what a beautiful garden you have. Mine has been frazzled buy the high temperatures this summer down here in SW France.

I cut my two euonymus down to almost ground level and they responded well with lots of new growth.

I had the same problem last year on two of my bushes. I cut them right down and this year they have recovered well with plenty of new growth. They are very tough.

What is your weather like?

A hot 34 here today, much too hot to do anything outside and still 25 at 11pm.

I contacted the subscription office to tell them I had not received my June copy, but have not had the courtesy of a reply.

I still havn't received my June copy, I don't know if it is the post over here or over there. Does anyone 

else in France receive it and if so have you got your June copy yet?
