Estate agents and solicitors are far more dangerous!

What sort of Salvias are they? Not all Salvias are hardy.

Hiya Pat. Gentle exercise and pain killers. Sadly a bit early in the day for my favourite remedy!

Liming effect on slugs?

You don't need to use ground beans, you can drink the coffee first and then use the coffee grounds.

What's this plant?

It is one of the Euphorbias.

Morning all.

Back would not let me sleep, so I finally gave up and am eating some raspberries and drinking coffee.

Not sure what I will manage to do today, worried that it might involve money, to cheer myself up.

Hope other poorly people are feeling better, see you later.

Evening all.

Don't you just hate doctors! There was a definite, although unsaid suggestion, that bad backs are just a part of getting old. 27, is that old?

Looks like no gardening for a few days, so seed shopping, planning and plant porn for me.

Off to cook supper and await OHs return from work.

Have a good evening everyone.

Is this powdery mildew on my Monarda Mohawk?

Def. powdery mildew, but I slightly disagree with Verdun, in that although it is unsightly, it has never caused any long term problems on my Monardas.

This conversation sounds a little worrying to me.

I would want to be 100% sure, that the plant you have, is the same as that used for culinary purposes. Otherwise there could be problems.

Morning all.

Still in pain from the back, so doing that thing that all doctors hate doing, seeing a doctor. At least I can usually get a GP appointment fairly quickly.

Torrential rain again yesterday, so garden looking a bit flattened.

Dove, sadly Botswana not till next summer, but needed to be booked early, due to the number of separate activities in different parts of the country, with internal flights etc, that needed organising.

Have a lovely day whatever you are doing.
