I have been blaming rabbits for chewing my plants down to the ground, maybe it's squirrels. Do they leave droppings the same as rabbits?

I will take a pic when my hydrangeas come out.

i know you have to treat the paniculata different to the bog standard ones as they bloom on the current years growth, opposite to the others.

Rose mummy, have you left them on the plants until the pods go black?

when you say ....fresh or dry ......I wonder if you may have picked too early as none of mine especially delphiniums are black yet. The wallflowers are no where near turning.

Use of a Propagator

  1. As  the OP said she had an electric propagator, I assumed she had it on. I have never had a propagator so I suppose its a good thing to keep plants together.

Climbing Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby'

It's perfect with a clematis as they both like their roots in the shade, so grow something low in front or cover the soil with slates or something to keep the sun off.

it won't swamp because you cut it right down to the ground in the Spring just like any other fuchsia, there is no such thing as a climbing one, just a tall growing one.

Verdun, they will leave you to cope on your own, and as most people try too and struggle, they will leave it.

i phoned every single day in the last two or three weeks of my mums life to see if anyone was coming to help. It was a day to day thing. The care package never ever was put into place.

The best to help was St Luke's in Plymouth, Mac Millan nurses never came at all!

Lesley.... Thank you for your comments about my garden, Brian was about six or seven,  his shell is six inches long.
