Pea shooters in my day!!

We have that Berberis around our oil tank, Police said even if they break into it, they will certainly leave some DNA.

Have a good day everyone, I am really going to get stuck into bulb planting today.

Vandalism!

Its not so much the damage done but the fact that someone has been in whilst you were out. My parents were burgled some years ago and thats how my mum looked at it. They got a German Shepherd dog after that, on the Policemans recomendation, he said they always turn a blind eye to dogs molesting burglars!

Prickly bushes are the thing for unruly kids.

Pleased to see I am not the only one who hasnt planted bulbs yet.

My daughter came up yesterday and emptied all the tubs and baskets ready for me to plant up, and brought 10 bags of compost to save me having to go out, just need a dry day now.

I think they look better too, they look a bit straggley if you leave them, they make tremendous growth in one year. It will thicken it up. Cut it back when you see new growth just appear at the base.

It wont make that size, but it will look thicker and stronger.

Beautiful, thank you for sharing.

Dahlia - still flowering

I wouldnt plant it out now, just enjoy the flowers, it will show you when it wants lifting and tucking up for winter, it will go black and soggy.

Some leave them in the ground over winter, most store the tuber and start it off in a pot next Spring when you can also take cuttings.
