Definitely not June for me too many birds around.

Still what suits one doesnt suit another, we all have different priorities.  Just keep nipping the new leaf buds out to thicken it.


What's the star in your garden right now

Dont worry about it, I did get some today but I think yours are well astray by now

If you complain to the post office, you can do it on line, they will send you free stamps

My rudbeckias are the same veedun, been a fantasic year, even from the cuttings from last autumn.

The best is yet to come in my garden, I delay the cosmos so they are 6ft tall and just coming into flower and the asters are still in bud.

Boil up a little bit with some sugar and taste, When I lived in Kent, I used to swap apples for plums and other veg, maybe you can do that.

plant feed cherry laurel

They do need to make root before they start making top growth, maybe wait till Spring now and see how they look by then. I am not sure about feeding now as they are getting ready for dormancy. Feed will confuse them.

I wonder if you bought plants that were a bit tall, they take longer to get established. I am sure they will be just fine.

Me too, you cant hurt them!

I am so sorry to hear that pdoc, is it west country your mum lives? I seem to remember you mentioning it before

It is very difficult looking after parents when they get old, just think what they must have gone through when we were teenagers!.

I feel that if we do all we can, and suggest all that will help them, then we cant do anymore, and we then will have nothing to feel guilty about.

They do like to hold onto their independance for as long as possible, my parents are 86 and 90 and have just now given in to me doing almost everything for them and mum said today, ythat she is pleased and is enjoying my help.


A tiny plant ID, and a quick question about roses.

Were those two flowers on it when you bought it, it looks like a yellow rose to me too.
