My ex colleagues, doctors like me, no appreciation or understanding of mental illness. They made my life hell on the many occasions I tried to return to work. I might have managed with a bit more support.

Disappointing plants

Posted: 06/08/2016 at 14:11

My Ricins have been poor this year. Had to plant them out when they were still very small, because we were going away. They never really got going, which is a shame, as they often grow to 4 or 5 feet.

Monardas do well in the damper areas of the garden, but not where it is drier.

Lawns cut, 2 hours of my life I won't get back, a few floppy flowers decapitated, and now very hot.

Going to sit in the shade and snooze.

What is your favourite plant?

Just walked round the garden, and today my favourite plant is, Dahlia Karma Choc., or maybe one of the Cannas, or maybe...................!

Hi all.

Wall to wall sunshine here, must cut the lawns today.

Did anyone see the fabulous programme on the Scottish highlands, last night, magnificent scenery and wild life photography.

Am going to book a week in Gairloch, as I realised watching the programme, how much I missed it. Have not been for a couple of years. Despite some of the amazing places, I have been lucky to go to, Gairloch and the North West coast, is still my favourite place on earth.

Congrats. Hosta and hubby.

Changes every day, but I suppose my "desert island" plant would be a dark Delphinium. I just wish I could stake them more sympathetically.

Ask me again tomorrow!!

Applying Nemaslug

Why do you want to Nemaslug the lawn, most people water it onto the beds?

Need a watering can, with a rose with large holes, the packet will tell you what diameter.
