SL it's Lysimachia. It's been discussed on forum quite a bit lately, some people do find it a pesky spreading thing. It seems to behave where we have it as it's not a very hospitable area for growing. It's in a really drafty cold area.

p.s.we don't light the chimnea there, it's currently in the naughty corner as it's gone rusty and was making a mess on the patio

Hi all, again.

I'm happy. Got togged up ready to shovel sand and hubby wanted to know what I was doing. Apparantly half a ton isn't much and I'm not required to help, might supervise It's just come and only half a big sack thing.

Think I was remembering when sand came for building the extension,garage & walls, hubby forgot to ask for it bagged, and by the time I got outside they had tipped ( I've just been told 10 ton) in the gateway and drive. Couldn't get off the property, couldn't even climb over the pile. I covered front lawn with plastic sheeting and started shovelling. When hubby got home you could hardly see any impression in the pile. Even though heaps on lawn. Luckily a neighbours came to help.

Tina are you sure it wasn't a hornet? Rightly or wrongly I thought bees lost their sting after one sting. Didn't think they attacked like wasps. I'm sure posters will tell me

Bye again.

A quick good morning all. Hope all feel ok today.

Weather looking dubious, great, can't wait to shovel wet sand.

Thanks Nut, certainly looks like our monster. Well I can make sails from it according to the link, and repair my saddle with our Yucca, what more could a woman want?

Dunno how come it survived the winter a few years ago, but it did. Sadly tree fern ( wrapped up better than I was ) didn't and many in GH didn't.

Tomato problems

Posted: 01/07/2013 at 21:40

Some of mine are curling in the upper leaves but they are a good colour. I'm sure they'll be ok. Some days wonderful weather, door wide open, other days cool & dull, door part closed. What's a poor tomato to do ?

Nut, do you think it is a phormium ? I'm not sure. Had phormiums before, a lot nicer looking plants, but always a bit tender in Yorks if planted in the ground. The trifid is very tough has inflexible leaves, but not sharp, tough as old boots, no die back, not bothered by hard frosts, been buried and flattened by snow, almost drowned, never fed, and had lumps dug away from base. Doesn't produce any basal off shoots.

It arrived about 15yrs ago in a pot with a phormium, that we were given when GC flooded. We potted it on and it remained smallish in a pot for 10yrs. Then I stuck it in the garden and that's the result. Horrid orange flower thing but I haven't the heart to dig it out.

Haven't found anything in books quite like it, would like to be able to give it a name.

Hole in my courgette

The first couple of courgettes on my plants were similar, I just picked them off and next lot are doing great, eaten two this evening. I give mine a tomato feed once a week.

Mine have been in years, they are just late flowering this year.
