Good morning.

Good luck with fundraising and weather at the weekend Lizzie, it should be okay I've currently got the rain

Daisy hope work is ok.

Hugs Lily, SP & all who need them.

Safe journey OL.

MrsGarden you'd make a good veg grower you could specialise in garden peas.

It's Wednesday so I might as well copy & paste last weeks post  B&Q and SM.

John sounds like a lovely day. Will Google heucheras, thanks.

Sweetpea hugs take care of yourself, eat well & sleep well. See you back soon.   

Duh! I bought the wrong Clematis for a container to train up a pergola.

Caral don't panic, I don't know what pruning category these two fall into, someone will. You haven't killed them, just rather delayed any flowers for this year. If it says prune in March they flower on new growth and you've cut that off. If they have a second flush you might get a few flowers, but you will have a good plant next year.  

I'd still have planted them as you have and planted deeply as they want roots in shade. Leave room to top pots up a bit in following years. They might flower later this year  but deffo next year.

I have two lots of 1st earlies Pentland Javelin & Vales Emerald . PJ not flowering VE are but as soon as weather dries a bit I'm emptying a sack of each and expect them to be ready, planted on 10/3.

2nd earlies Charlotte have grown much more leaf but need leaving a few more weeks.

I usually harvest when leaves start to yellow regardless of any flowers
