Cheers Fairy, the ground is pretty good here. It's been a while since I've had one. If I remember they can be quite tall but prone to floppiness It's still so mild that I have plenty of things that could do with planting out, even my cuttings are still growing. They should be good plants next year

I've got a very small sedum, thanks to nut It's got a few small rosettes and looking healthy. Looking forward to seeing it next year and really good news that it's still flowering for you. Perfect.

Mines still in a pot but if we ever get a dry sunny day will have to decide where it's going to live

It was on it's way earlier on and my ever calm OH said it can be fixed so not going to worry about it Just makes the garden look more untidy than it normal does

It's gone a bit too far for that Topbird. In fairness OH quickly erected this in the Summer to block out a neighbours over imposing summer house

 I've got some plastic coldframes and green house which I'm a bit worried about as well

It takes me ages to decide where to plant things and I always squeeze things into a space that I know deep down might be too small

Always have loads of surplus, still have some sitting about. Managed to sell quite a bit this year and gave loads to the local community centre for their garden and funds. It's only up the street so easy My fencing is being blown down by the wind

Oh nut that did make me laugh especially the little attention and playing with seedlings

Made a plan, Hebacious border for next year

Plan is looking good Perki , I have had a few gardens and have always just plonked things in, probably would have had a better effect with a bit of forethought. They are such great plants jo aren't they? Just keeps on flowering
