Rabbits

Ooops - did not mean to write that . I have used cayenne pepper this year - I think it's worked because nothing has been munched. I thought a hot nose / tongue & paws might deter them.

Shotgun?

30cm plant plugs - GW offer

Mine arrived yesterday. I have potted them on into a larger pot because they are still quite small. My garden is now too dry to put things in.  I'll wait until autumn to put them in the ground.

I suppose you could put them in the shade in a tray which has a wet towel in the bottom. I've done that before and it worked. Would someone look after them in their home for you?

Oh come on......

Reading a book right now which talks about the effects of climate change 70,000 years ago. Not much change then, it's still changing! 

Weed or not?

Epilobium angustifolia? The pink form is called fireweed or rosebay willowherb in UK but the white form is lovely in the garden.

FIDGET'S BIG DAY!!!

My daughter had a M&S cake made up of three tiers. The florist made a beautiful spray to go on top & it looked good and tasted delicious. Cakes can be way too expensive.

Son had a cake made of different cheeses, decorated with ivy. Now that was different!  

Monty and those gardening sins...

Oh dear ... this thread  took a turn I was not expecting. I suppose I should have said that at least Monty does some things the way normal mortals do too.  Another example of foot in mouth syndrome.

Was it just me who saw Monty commit gardening sines? He over-stuffed a hanging basket with POT BOUND plants! Tut tut.  And then he planted some distinctly leggy cosmos which had not been pinched out or watered much by the look of it! I only know that about cosmos because they looked a bit like mine.  His halo is slipping!

Attractive stinging nettles?

What about the red or white dead nettle? I don't think they are stingers though.

What's wrong with these gooseberries

It looks a bit like mildew after the early stages- as if the furry stuff has come off and left the scabby stuff behind. Not a very clear explanation but someone with better knowledge will be along soon!
