Good afternoon all,

Still waiting for the heavy rain that was forcast for this afternoon. Even got a yellow warning.

Been wondering the best way to treat my agapanthus. I've got five clumps, two in pots and three in the ground. Only one of the pots has flowers and of the clumps in the ground there is only one with just one flower. I understand they like to be pot bound. I've never fed them and they are left out over winter.

I read Geoff's post about his neighbours neglected plant so should I dig mine up and replant in pots in the ground?

What's the weather like in your area?

We've got a yellow warning here for heavy rain. Spent an hour this morning giving all the plants in tubs and the geraniums in the ground a feed  of phostrogen. Some of the geraniums in one part of the garden have yellowing leaves with green veins. Some sort of deficiency. I will look it up to try and find out a solution.

Hi Jenny,

I didn't know who Robert P was either 'til I googled him, but if he's just been cheated on do you think he will be an asset to the team? He might have his mind on other things.

Perhaps Dean's doctor could give the team a medical, he sounds reasonable.

They were painting a postbox gold in Penzance this morning to celebrate Helen and Heather's gold in the rowing and stamps will be available from lunch time featuring them. They said the gold paint would peel off after 6 months so not all good news.

I loved that series 'Das boot' about the German subs in the war. If you could get the submarine captain on the team I might overlook the shower facilities.

Lottiebeans, Might it be a HUB? Husbands and boyfriends.

Kate, if the pond is our shower facility I may not be available and my transfer fee might be a bit steep.

Will we be training in Geoff's back garden?  I hope Mrs Geoff doesn't worry about the potential WAGS that may be hanging about.

What's the weather like in your area?

Blue sky here in Cornwall but with the occasional heavy shower. Good growing weather but the weeds love it too.

My mam was a fantastic baker and cook too.  It was one of my best memories, blackberry picking, and still do it now.

If you know where your yardarm is and the sun has gone below it then definately.

Talkback: How to plant a kiwi plant

I agree with DianaR. Mine is growing against a stone shed and towers above it and have to keep cutting big shoots off. It was supposed to be self-fertile and has lots of flowers but never any fruit. Does anyone know how to tell if it's male or female. The flowers are about the same size as a wild dog rose.
