Evening all.

Quiet days pottering, nursing slight hangover.

Several Meconopsis now got buds, but none ready to flower.

WW, I go back far enough to have seen Dave Grohl drumming with Nirvana.

Have a lovely evening all, I need to get on and cook tea, OH applying for jobs, as her current one ends in July.

Chelsea Chop

Posted: Today at 13:34

I think that it is important to remember when particular plants flower in your area, as the Chelsea chop will delay this by a few weeks. Here in my slightly shady Sheffield garden, a lot of plants would not flower at all, if chopped.

Newman and Redford, almost enough to turn me off the Straight and narrow!

Where did you go in Arrochar Fg?

I think the Cobbler is a great hill, used to stay on Loch Fynne and often walked in Arrochar.

I think Obelixx's comments are key. It is difficult to wet the roots of a very pot bound plant and it will struggle without moist roots.

Also  agree with Verdun, de-stress the plant, by removing the flower.

Thank you so much everyone. Love the pictures and all so apt for me. An old punk partial to a drop of alcohol, in moderation of course.

Love Chelsea, but the crowds and the Hooray Henry's do make me want a gun.

Morning all.

Damp here at the moment.

My Birthday present is a 2 day trip to Sissinghurst and Great Dixter later in the summer. What a lucky boy I am.

Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday, I shall mostly be eating and drinking, starting with a sausage sandwich.

Happy Birthday Clari.

Help with my first garden project?

You will only get blue Hydrangeas if you have an acid soil, so you need to check the soil pH.
