Just checked all details.  I do seem to have Polish Spirit.

Chicky, I looked on the site you recommended and the flowers are too small for Liisu. Will check Polish Spirit out tomorrow.  My plant has lots of buds on ready to burst open.  It is very floriferous.

Not yet, but will mention it to the organisers of the trips I go on!  Thank you.

Oh, that was a lovely day in Dorset.  I was so impressed with the way the council had managed the verges and roundabouts in the county and the lovely thatched cottages and then these two lovely gardens.  Bennetts Water Gardens were so beautiful and the Abbotsbury Subtropical too.  I will post some of my pictures.

Wow, now was that not a lovely present to leave me in my potager?  It does have loads of flowers on it still in bud so, if the weather staysbenign the fuchsia is going to be a riot of red and purple for a good few week's yet.

Thank you, waterbutts.  That looks like it.  I shall now label it.  It is very pretty.

Could someone enlighten me on the name of this clematis which was left in a corner of my potager in a small pot for me to find by one of the many visitors to my garden?  I did recognise it as a climber, put it in a big pot with a stake and put it under my Fuchsia magellanica to shade its roots, then forgot it was there and now its purple flowers with pale green middles are scrambling through the big fuchsia bush and I cannot tell my visitors its name because no one has owned up to leaving it for me.

Autumn colour

Posted: 11/09/2013 at 12:05

My baby acer which I grew from a two leaved seedling I "weeded" at the Bristol botanic garden below the very old ones there, is beginning to show its new colours for the autumn.  Watering the asters below it has made sure it did not get forgotten with the watering can this dry summer.
