Puzzled by the typo in the original message - what's a large gainfully? Can't work that one out at all!

Rabbits ate all the flowers off my display of blue and yellow bedding primroses - I only had it for 2 days. They nibbled the centres out, right down to the buds. They are now covered with upturned wire baskets - not really the look I was going for! However, the plants did produce new buds and are flowering again now. (I know it was a rabbit because I trapped the little beast!)

I was taught to just say each syllable with equal emphasis, but I don't think it really matters how you say it, it's a dead language so there's no real correct way. I find I can understand the scientific names no matter how they are pronounced. Don't worry about it, no-one will laugh at you!

Plant Identification please

That was my first thought, Nut.

Linaria Vulgaris

It certainly self-seeds very easily, all over my gravel drive usually. Cool conditions, cover with grit? Worth a try.

Hi Kim scott3, can I suggest that you start a new thread for your new question? You will probably get more replies that way.

Not much happened here, just went a bit dull but the sunshine was there throughout. Disappointing!

Winter jasmine grows fine in my very alkaline soil. Other types have sulked and died.

Suggestions for Hiding Ugly Back Fence

I would be wanting to do something about the ivy that's coming over the fence, it would overwhelm anything that was planted on the garden side.

Just as an aside, I had a lot of this type of fencing when I first moved to my current garden, and I regretted having it taken down - it blocked off an unattractive view of the neighbouring builders' yard. I wonder what the view is like in this case?
