Katherine hasn't impressed me enough to go looking for more Berghill. I find the bog standard reticulata more to my taste.

Tree Peony from seed

It's a long wait but they're pretty reliable germinators. If you can get fresh seed they usually put up a shoot in the first spring. Bought, stored seed sometimes just puts down a root the first spring and shoots up the second.

I sow mine in a pot when they're ripe, put them outside with grit on top and wait.

Can anyone tell me what this is plese...

Definitely a comphrey. I've got a large patch of that one. In flower now.

All sort of bugs in the soil

When there aren't bugs in your soil it's time to worry. Most of them are on our side, just a few no so welcome.

Bed time I think. Maybe I won't have a cough tomorrow, maybe you won't either Fairygirl.

Dove, I think there was a word from Verdun this morning.

I'm sitting down, it's OK.

Bob, when I looked at my pot supply at the beginning of the season it seemed huge but I'm going through it very quickly, Those 6" shallowish ones that I use to prick out 6 or so perennials are nearly gone. I could use the standard 1L pot but that's deeper and I like to do the next (single) pot on into those.

Thought I might try chardonnay tomorrow, see if it works better. Choc no good, or red wine, they keep me awake and twitching all night.

But then I might fall over Dove.

Hi all. Anyone want my cough? I've treated it with Sauvignon blanc but it hasn't cured it.
