End of April last year up in the butterfly garden.  Do you think that is enough, Edd?

A lot of my pics are too big to go on here successfully but I will try later, Edd.  At the moment I am trying to finish a talk I am giving on the 11th April while the pollution and then rain in Bristol has stopped play in the garden!  I have watered in the conservatory and found a very good germination rate for my rudbeckia which bodes well for the golden display in the autumn.  

Major boo boo!

The fact she bought it so cheaply makes me think it was out of date or ineffective in some way .  You could be lucky.  If it had happened to any of my potgrown plants I would take them out of the pots and dunk each thoroughly in a bath of rainwater.  Then repot in fresh compost.  Many benefit from cutting back now anyway but make sure she does not use the herbs in her cooking.  Tell her they need cutting back to sprout lots of lovely new shoots for her to use the rest of the year.  We have dreadful pollution in Bristol today and I will not be using anything from the garden but the saladings in the conservatory are fine so a cheese salad for lunch and chicken salad for supper.
