Morning. Drizzley and cold again.
Nice to see you Stacey, and glad to hear you have your chilli stuff selling ont net! Well done, I remember you mentioned you wanted to sell last year. Might even grow some now you've started a thread of what to do with them! Yeah right, sure i will!
As usual I've now forgotten what everyone else is up to!
Kef, hope shopping goes ok
OL, enjoy the freebies, have missed the bit about yr OH going self employed though, but well done to him, hope it goes really well.
Verdun, missed your mum being ill, hope she's well soon.
Dove, hope the ceiling is ok.

Plant sale was a wash out, only a few sellers turned up. Still , I came away with a lilac thalictrum (I think, best check the name again).
Then ended up at GC, tempted by a betula PANDA, no lie! Resisted and did a bit of tree porn when I got home, think the perfect solution will be betula Royal purple ( purple leaf silver birch, bark takes a few years until its white though). Will pop back to GC to ask if they can order it, otherwise burncoose ( I think or maybe bluebell, I looked at both!).
Happy evenings everyone. X

What's the star in your garden right now

Lovely flowers everyone, I've enjoyed looking back on this thread. Mark, that tri-spotty-thingummy is gorgeous!
My huge cosmos is still going crazy despite the rain.
A rescue poppy from late spring has a flower on it now so at least I know the label is right.
8foot sunflowers just coming out - but pointing the wrong blinkin way!

Thanks both, its the flowering type and yes it is quite woody for a full lawn. I have 3 'patches' but none have flowered, oh well I'll wait and see what next year brings.

Does anyone know why my camomile lawn hasn't flowered this year? (apart from 3 or 4 flowers). For the last 3 years it has flowered very well. Thanks.

Morning all.
So is it official yet?... August is the new autumn ?
if so my unopened sunflowers have had it, but at least its autumn so I can start rearranging the planting. Ready to plant the new trees out but the GC doesn't know its autumn yet so haven't got a good choice in for me...
Roll on summer
have a good day everyone.
