Good afternoon Verdun.

going to try to sit outside work for last ,10mins of lunchtime.


any suggestions for tall trees

Sounds familiar, amerie2, I did the same. I planted a golden ash, still waiting for its 'quick growth', patience is needed but you can buy ready grown huge trees as well. It depends how much space you want to fill and how much attention you want to give it, a pleache'd tree would leave space for planting underneath.

Addict - thanks, I usually grow morning glory and / or black eyed Susan in this planter( sorry bit early in morning for full names). Neither have done anyhing yet this year. Im pleased with the nastuertiums though.

birdy -  I chop off the flowers when in bud on sone of my alchimilla and they stay much more reasonably sized.

Debra - great spuds! What do you mean about growing in a box - di you bury the box in soil to avoid spread or do you mean in a planter? Never grown potatoes or other veg.

Good Evening FORKERS

It certainly can get out oh hand, I'm about to move mine and reduce it yet again ( its under the Lucifer in my middle pic earlier). Looks lovely when water settles on leaves.
