Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 08/07/2016 at 21:20

Didnt feel like doing any gardening this evening after Federer lost  . But reluctantly mowed the lawn before weekends rain forecast, its starting to look like a lawn again after resowing patches. Just been in the GH scoffing some strawberrys to cheer me up 

Tomatoe plant broke

I cant make my mind up what to do with my tomatoe plant. It broke but not a clean break. should I leave it to and hope it doesn't break totally or cut my loss now and cut it off?

Looks like the weather been playing up with most people this week. I bought some plant supports the other day, but it seem I am to late . A terracotta pot with regale lilys has blow over as well breaking the pot  sometimes I wonder why I bother. I think I go and sow some biennials today in GH out of this ruddy weather. 

Plants for hanging basket in shade

Like obelixx said lobelia are good in shade with a good range of colours. Mimulus - begonia - busy lizzles are good aswell. 

What is this plant?? Has never flowered.

Looks like a Monarda. Aromatic leaves stems are square shape, how the new top leaves are shaped look just like my monardas.

Well this week I,ve had a little melt down regarding my lawn / grass. I was getting really annoyed for quite a while that some grass wasnt matching colour wise with the rest of the lawn. ( petty I know )

I couldnt take it anymore so I just want out and dug it all out knowing full well I should of waited till the end of the season.

Now I,ve got some crazy pattern on the lawn which some people think is some form of art , the fat wood pigeon trying to steal the grass seed now, plus the sparrows having a mud bath which refuse to move until I get within a few feet. 

I cant be alone regarding a garden melt down. someone must of do something they know their going to regret but do it anyway.
