Our heating has been on all day, drying the washing.

dove, no need to wash the outside of the car, it will be well mud splashed down here.

which hospital Hosta? Are you ok to drive?

I can house the fuchsias, just the cannas Hosta, just haven't the room as they are in quite big pots, miss Paradise can live in the conservatory, in fact I brought her in today, before she blows away.

Jad, my courgettes have been very good and still more coming, they do like rich ground and lots of water.

lettuces, I bought a pack of living salad from Lidl in December, separated them up, planted in the green house there is still some in there. I did grow some dark red ones outside which were good but at 99p for 8 months I probably won't bother using seed tray space.

my parsnips are huge, well, the green is! Don't know what they are doing underground, added bonus, the slugs don't touch them.

my sweet peas have come adrift from the trellis as well but runners still gripping on. They are at the giving away stage, I am not keen on them frozen.

tomatoes by the tons, I am hoping not to have any green ones but I did sow too late, you need to sow mid January down here as May and June are our warmest months, by then they will be grown, flowered and making fruit.

It's more than like earwigs eat the buds on dahlias.

You can get those for gardening fishy, I bought one of those belts with the hold it all pouch , It slipped straight off to the ground. 

I need to find an ordinary belt to slip in on too, they are good though, holding secateurs ball of string a few plastic tie rings mobile phone, hankie, odd bulb i dig up up, come to think of it I don't think a pouch is big enough!

My Bristol Garden in 2015

Lovely lot of photos Mation, I especially like the little violas, I always have a pot of seedlings on the go, they just fit in anywhere.

Is that a little coral coloured Salvia? It's very pretty, also the Japanese Anemone.

Pouring with rain here in nice sunny warm Devon....not!

looks like another quick nip to the greenhouse then maybe bit of the dreaded HW.

too wet to get out to feed the birds, must find winter gardening coat.

I expect Hostas day will be the same.

How to plant Crocosmia

Posted: 14/09/2015 at 09:31

Just put it in the garden, no need to over winter those, plant them at leat 3inches deep or they will rock if you are in a windy area.  I have pulled these out of the garden, left them overwinter in a box and planted where I wanted them the following spring, they all came up. In fact it's a job to get rid of them.

The purple flower is a Petunia, nothing special just from a packet of seeds.

Chrysanth in the middle, cosmos at the bottom.

Maybe you have pruned them, if you cut of last years growth you won't get flowers this year.
