That does look like yarrow. I grew some pastel shades of these last year. I really like these plants, should have plenty of flowers this year. The small clumps that I planted last year have really bulked up so I think they spread a lot. Hope the insects find them

I gave watching the news many years ago Tetley, I just found it too depressing and sad. I found that the things that were being aired were really beyond my control. I think my life is better off with out it I listen to the radio a bit so pick up bits from there. Although Radio 4 still has too much news for me.

Tetley says

"I am interested in opinions from others (even if I disagree with them), and also think that it is a good thing to be able to discuss these really very important matters with other reasonable adults.  It is not always good to just agree with opinions for the sake of "peace and quiet" because that is futile and - yes, sticking one`s head in a dark place!

If there are posts on the forum that hold no interest for me, I do not join in - it is not compulsory."

Sorry can't do the quotes thing, but yes good reasonable healthy, respectful  debate is a good thing. I suspect that that things on this thread took a turn towards the vitriolic and alarmist nature which won't add anything to the debate apart from get peoples back ups. Shame really but that's just people though, some just can't help themselves.

Still no leaflets but it will be compost for all of them

Ha ha that's what I thought too KT, can't bear the male version either! I'd forgotten Monty said it was off tonight and was all settled down ready for it. Disappointed

I always turn mine and I like to think it makes then sturdier. They will fine planted deeply. I leave a small bit of stem standing out of the compost maybe a cm.

I'm sure the leave group will no doubt spread their own propaganda Tetley. MInd you they must be really revealing in the bad press that the Gov is getting spending that money. I heard on the radio that another 14 million? 7 each is going to be sent on trying to persuade people either way.

I wouldn't have thought there would be many floating voters on this one though.

I haven't had any leaflets yet, don't even know the date, is it in June?
