books/ magazines / internet / gardening forums. I think you pick up plant names etc easier  if you generally interested.

I did most yesterday in the rain moving pots into GH and emptying them.

I wanted to move a peony and lift the last of my dahlias and a general tidy up, but it snowed last night about inch but it froze  I have already nearly end up on my bum but my silky moves kept me on my feet 

Where is Autumn?

It been a terrible Summer / Autumn here in NW. I cant remember when we had a fine day or when we didnt have a wind / rain weather warning. we had hailstone / heavy rain / thunder / Lighting and winds Wednesday  it knock a load of pebble dash off the wall. The garden been saturated for weeks on end now, I havent even planted one bulb yet  I keep buy more as well what are getting sold off cheap.


The only good thing is we haven't had a frost yet,  until this weekend -3 forecast. I have only just lifted the canna  this week but the wind shredded the leaves along with most of the other plants.

It not been a bad year for autumn colour most of the leaves are down now though
