I thought that the purpose of the off button was to avoid what you did not like.

Hi all.

Am back from Harrogate, had a lovely day. Great to speak to some of the knowledgeable staff, from some of the specialist nurseries, friendly, helpful and did not seem to care whether you bought anything or not.

However, did buy a Uvularia grandiflora and a Cornus canadensis,for the woodland.

Snap Yvie, also saw 2 Red Kites today, having not seen them for years. They are fairly common in N. Yorks. , but have not yet reached Sheffield.

Morning all.

Much cooler here today.

Decided to go to Harrogate Flower Show, on waking this morning, so need to get a move on.

See you later.

Jack by the hedge. In fact lots of jack by the hedge!

I would just strim the tops off, will prevent further seeding.

Morning all.

Speedy recovery to Shadow.

Last day of sunshine today.

Time to pot on various Salvia, Cosmos, Rudbeckia and Ageratum. A nice day to sit outside the summer house and use the table there.

I may be wrong, but I thought that they were not hardy.

Steamy here. Sweating like a pig, which is a ridiculous phrase, as pigs don't sweat [ actually refers to the smelting of pig iron ]

Divided 4 large clumps of Asters, made 16 plants, which have now created another sinuous line through a border.

GW magazine has arrived, so afternoon outside reading I think. Is it too early for a little snifter?

Morning all.

Sunny again, but last day I believe.

Another day of moving and dividing, trying to create sinusoidal waves, throughout one border. [ pretentious moi ! ]

Also need some sea weed feed, to try and resurrect my box blobs, who knows what else I may return with?

I think some of Verduns choices are good, but try not to use too many different types. 2 or 3 plants repeated will look much better.
