star gaze lily................after having my daughter, who never pauses for breath, I can now see some of the merits in my grandma's saying!!!   mind you, my grannie can talk the hind leg off a donkey so perhaps she actually wanted more time for HER to talk!!

thanks milfordchris, i'll try anything to save it as my ceanothus has flowers for 10 months of the year and the bees adore it in the summer months!

and don't get me started on the neighbours, the weedkiller is the tip of the iceberg!!

thanks for your sympathy flowering rose.  i'm actually looking at moving to get away from them, which is a shame as i've lived in my house for 15 years now and two of my children have grown up here..............

apologies for my late reply to your reply!! thanks for your answer.

it can't be a systemic weedkiller as only the parts the weedkiller touched have died back but i will follow your advice and fingers crossed for next spring!

and yes, the local policing team are aware of the problems i'm having but it's my word against the neighbours, i didn't see them do anything and, despite me hearing neighbours talking about putting weedkiller on, it's not proof enough!.

my lovely (!!) neighbours have put weedkiller on my ceanothus (and other plants too) as part of an ongoing hate campaign.  Luckily it's just on the leaves of the ceanothus but i'm wondering whether to prune out the dead now or leave it til spring?  i'm oop north in yorkshire and the ceanothus is quite exposed...advice please

i live north of watford (!) and our crocuses have been in flower for the last 2 or 3 weeks now!!  also, i had my first daffodil blooming 5 weeks ago but then it got hit by the first lot of snow. my second and third daffodils then got sideswiped by the second lot of snow! and today, i saw my first painted lady, luckily my wallflower 'bowles mauve' has flowers on it!! mild weather indeed!!
