Good Morning Everyone

I hope you are better today Geoff

I would be upset ,too Kate

We have had to put up with our neighbours building lots of extensions but luckily the shrubs/trees mostly hide them now - not when I look out of the upstairs windows though!

I hope the worms are o.k Lottie  I wish your Grandad a really Happy Birthday and hope he has a great party

I won't join the belly dancers though - that would be just too much

Hoping to have a good day in the garden today - weather forecast is good Going to Homebase to buy some sacks of bulbs - it is a 15% discount day

Have a good day everyone

Another end of summer flower

Sage _ Why Can't I grow it?

Posted: 27/09/2012 at 13:35

Hello Bulleyana- You say your  new Sage plant is in a good sized pot - I am thinking that if the plant is a new one maybe the pot is too big  to start it growing well ? I usually pot new plants into the next size and grow them on a bit befroe going to the next size - if this makes sense  The only other thing I can think of is where the pot is - Sages do like the sunshine - when we get any that is
