You couldn't make this stuff up could you? 


"Allardyce has described the meeting as 'an error of judgement', adding that 'entrapment has won on this occasion'.

But many might say that he's far from being a victim: his payout equates to £15,000 for every day he was in the job."


" entrapment has won on this occasion"  No, greed and arrogance lost on this occasion.

For me, heathers come under the same umbrella as hanging baskets, window boxes, lavender hedges . They CAN look lovely , but for every good one you see, you see a hundred horrors.


I totally accept it's pretty much all down to maintenance, but lots of folk don't bother.


I have no problem with bareness in winter, be it roses, hostas or other things. I love the resurgence in Spring and the contrast between the garden in the season. 


Lantana, unfortunately, our passion flower was not only cut down to the ground, but Hubby thought he'd dug out the roots, and the flippin' thing is still coming back. 


Sprayed with SBK  a while back so hopefully , no more next year.

I think the trouble I have with heathers , is that I started working in a garden centre in 1979 when everyone was having " heathers and conifers" and , being in Scotland, lots of tourists bought heathers to take home.


We sold millions of them . " too much of a good thing........."


I'm still  not keen on "dwarf" conifers, for the same reason.


I've never bought one, and have never had one in any garden I've ever owned, nor do I expect that to change.

Morning all. 


Well done Wonky. I'm so pleased for you. AND A VAN!!!!


 Hosta moving today. bulbs can wait. I planted loads yesterday. Dove, I''ve planted loads of alliums and tete a tete in those new beds on the terrace behind utility room. Popped another clematis in and 3 different varieties of penstemon ( 12 plants ) mixed in to give a bit of height between hostas and clematis.

they're horrid little blobby things which most folk don't prune properly and they end up all woody and even more horrid.

Hubby home a day early. Finished the job so thought he'd come straight home as a surprise.


Almost pooped me pants when he walked into the polytunnel.
