Doesn't it get dark early?!

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 01:43

I've really noticed the nights drawing in. Usually down here in London it stays warm until mid October, not used to these cold spells at this time of year. We came out of the Garden Centre today and I remarked to my girlfriend how autumnal it looked, all the trees looked like they were ready to turn, very strange.

It's probably because we've got a three day holiday in Norfolk this week, when that's over it'll get really hot again when we've got to work . Loved reading the poems!

I dead headed cosmos by cutting back to nearest leaf joint and they have produced masses of flowers and still are. I read somewhere that with candytuft to cut back quite a bit, so I cut them down to about half, they are now flowering for the second time. Yes Orchid Lady, the second flowers on my candytuft were about half the size.

Potted plants for winter?

This is an interesting thread, thanks for starting it. I too was wondering what I could do to make use of all the pots I filled with annuals this year, seems like there is lots of choice.

Tree ID please.

Thanks for all the advice! I've got some time off work over the next two weeks so I hope to have a look round at them.

I'll check out the local Nursery it's pretty close to here.
