Verdun I've just googled acteas, ooo they're lovely. But I think with my skills I will resist and be happy to see pics of yours .... And Fairy's.

Hi all, went to an open garden today. not especially showy but lots of lovely plants, lots of flowers. Came away with a few but only because it's for charity. The went to GC, again didn't get much. 

hope you've all had a good day gardening.

Waterbuts, wish I'd gone to Bakewell today But didn't see your post in time.

did a daft thing today - scattered seed in borders - not in rows or curves - so I will just pull the random things out thinking they are weeds. Never mind they came free with Garden Something magazine (Garden answers?).

Found seeds I'd sown in spring , Vebena bonawotsit. What do I do with them now? Anyone know if should plant them or put in GH, they are about 3" tall, or am I wasting my time?

Job well done, Fairy. Evening all. Watching GW thinking about Verdun using his new toy trimming hedges. Glad to see Monty still doing cuttings to spur me on. Just coming to Carol's bit now. see ya later.

Hmmm, should I keep it in the pot then or just plant it and hope for the best. Might try some cuttings if its not too late.

No gardening done, maybe later. I've run errands for FIL, left kids at GParents. Took one shopping. Dragged em away from tv/computer. Now sent them outside to play on trampoline, unfortunatlely they have now become 'boys' - fighting , shouting and being annoying - better send them back to gadgets!  Have started a list of jobs they can do to help around the house, prompted by Potty but something I've been meaning to do for ages.

I have collected some garden goblins (missed delivery yesterday) but both have some damage so waiting to see how that's responded to.

Can see lobelia has started to flower but not been to have a close look yet so that's my next 'job'...

Potty - s.son chose paint for his room few years ago, dark blue and dark red, went mad withOH allowing it so I did it boring beige 2 years ago. Not sure i want a repeat episode, but good plan.

oh that's not what iI'd hoped to read Fidgetbones, but err thanks.

When I've googled it and the label says it's hardy.

So maybe I should leave it in it's pot and greenhouse it? Or do you think the pests may have eaten it rather than just dying?

oops sorry didn't think i'd posted as separate thread, though I'd deleted by mistake so this is duplicated now.(coreopsis) thanks fidget off to read your response now
