RHS how to garden, lovely and great reference book.

80 days , liked the part where Monty mused about letting the plants do their own thing rather than being pruned and clipped to please us. For me, a bit of both but must say that the clipping neatness is easier to achieve unless you've got lots of space to allow the plants to sprawl away and have a good eye to create pleasing combinations which look good all year - this is going to be my next challenge, oh dear! ( didn't like Monty voicing his negative opinion about national flower, which was quite pretty, although I can see his point about it being ugly too , but his opinion was too strongly put and the lady looked uncomfortable) sorry more ranting, still not recovered from yesterday.

Morning all , dreadful conference yesterday, awful travelling too, arrived late - Leeds! Never ever drive through Leeds even with a sat nav. Another venue crossed off my list. Speakers too, lectured like students but 10 years out of date! And I lost a days pay to go! Not happy, can't wait to do online feedback! Sorry, rant over.

Watched around the world in 80 gardens to to calm down, that was nice. Got rhs how to garden out of library,

Work today and another conference tomorrow

Sounds a very good idea, which plants were you going for, was it camomile or a variety of different ones?

Thanks addict.

is it too late to prune a lilac tree?

I have a large lilac tree which needs shaping / trimming back. Should I wait until after it flowers nnext year or can I get away with it now, possibly just removing the branches I don't want. Thanks.

Chicky, im even more excited now. Is yours flowering now? The label and website said late summer/aut. Oh I do hope its properly labelled and its not a pink one ( not that there's anything wrong with pink).

No chance of sofa and sleep for me yet.
