My Bristol Garden in 2015

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 10:06

Not too bedadraggled up the garden so deadheaded roses and rescued ripe plums and apples from the birds and took some pictures.  Lots of more rosebuds have appeared and the hibiscus bushes are covered in buds so look promising.

More rain for Bristol today.  Quite cool and gloomy so it is on the way as forecast.  I really must go out on a tour of inspection before it pours down.  Breakfast can wait though I have had a cup of tea after sleeping in !

I think it must be something to do with the new website being prepared this week.

Yes all swelling gone down on my feet now thank you GWRS.  And pics are back to normal.  The change in the weather may be affecting your dahlias.  They like it warm.  You could try a feed with tomato food - just half strength but probably only patience is required.  Make sure you deadhead the first flowers as they go over to encourage the others as the plant really wants to be pollinated..

I hve just noticed all pictures posted have disappeared from the site.  When you click on the link given it says this web page is not available, so posting pictures is a waste of effort.  They seem to be disappearing into the ether.  Help from the monitors of the site needed urgently.

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
