My Grandfather used to have old tin baths hanging on the wall of his shed,I remember as children we used to go around hitting them with sticks like huge drums.

I,ve had an abutilon in the garden for several years,they always look sad when they have finished flowering,I always give mine a hard prune then right back to almost the hard wood(depending if you want it to get any bigger,I don,t).

It gets no special teeatment,but is situated in a sheltered spot next to a fence with the shed on one side and a thick hedge on the other.

If you decide to prune,do it asap,if you get frosts soon after,it will kill it.

Morning all,

Sunny at the moment.but quite cold and we are having internittant heavy showers. will start with lots of intentions of a proper wash day etc,then you wake up it the summer,its a beautiful day and you rush out to the garden,jobs forgotten..........but that the joy of not working,you can please yourself what you do and when you do it
