Why would you want to cut the flowers off!  Leave them going as long as possible, if you want, you could trim lightly to keep it neat, but I do as others say and wait for new growth in March/April time then right off as low to the ground as poss.

Fishy, could I have some wallflower seeds please?

Thank you to everyone who is sending seeds to me, isnt it nice to grow things from other peoples gardens. 

I still have loads of those campanula plants, keep finding huge clumps of it, its amazing how quickly it spreads, I only started of with a couple of plants from Parkers sale catalogue! 

I cant tell if its the blue or white now, but you are welcome to some.

should i just give up or buy a new fork!?

Being a TA, I think you should not give up on that one, just take it to the local blacksmith and get a new prong welded on.

I have had two clumps of bamboo planted 3 years ago, in the garden, they say its a non evasive type, its only just started to grow, I really wanted that swaying type waving in the breeze, will mine ever grow 6/8ft tall.  Does it take a long while usually to get established?

Thank you, I just cant think what else it could possibly be obstructing like that. Mum is quite prepared for them to say they will remove the bladder, she already has a stoma, she says another bag wont make any diference, I just hope she can stay that positive, she is brilliant for 86.

Dad is coping very well now, cooks a breakfast every day and at the moment has a tomato sandwich every day for lunch because we have a glut!

The weather is still here, just not showing at the top of the home page.

Google Gardeners World weather, then when you have selected it, put it in your bookmarks /favorites or whatever you use. Its just the same as it was.

Your poor mum, verdun, she must wonder what is going on in her head. Do the nurses think that is what is to be expected from her, or is there an underlying problem, I havent read all the posts on here but it sounds so sad for everyone concerned.

My mum is still in hospitsl, thats about 10days now, I am expecting them to say bladder cancer, but she seems so well in herself, just cant pee because of an obsruction. We will know in 2 weeks time, when they have diagnosed from the biopsy.
