Dare I say.

Gardening is a mixture of art and science, although it is quite possible to garden successfully without a knowledge of either. I dont think that we should get too concerned about the minor details, the only important thing is how much you enjoy it.

I am a scientist, but have little interest in that side of gardening, prefering as Verdun says to try and paint pictures.

Morning all

Much cooler today which is nice, i know I shouldnt moan, but it has been a little too hot for me. I really am going to tame the jungle today!

Edd the trip sounds great, and I am glad your op. went ok.

Bizzie B. Ageratum are HHAs, flowering from early July through to late September in Sheffield. I am not sure if they might be hardy in some southern places.

Evening all. The jungle remains untamed. I have felt an overwhelming tiredness today, so I have just been looking, and worrying about how much there is to do, having missed the garden for 3 weeks.

Oh well, it will work out in the end, drink anyone, and then I better cook tea.

Not Asters, they are Ageratum, a much larger form than the normal bedding types. i raise them from seed every year

Please help ID this flower...

Certainly does Nut, but I like that. It sometimes makes nice combinations by accident, and if i dont like where it ends up, it is easy to pull up.

Not much gardening going on today, but here are some pictures.


what shrub is purple flowered beauty?

I dont know what it is, but I am sure it is not a Callicarpus. Flowers on these are really insignificant, you can only see them if you are right up close.

Morning all.

Nice to be able to see whats going on here, Mum does not have the internet.

Machete at the ready, I am going to tackle the jungle today. If I dont appear on here tonight, please send in a rescue party.

Whats all this about tarts, oh I see not that sort!

Have a lovely day everyone, its nice to be home.

Can anyone ID this plant please?

Yep, agree with fidget. you shouldnt need to prune it, as it dies back in winter. All the new growth comes in Spring, and if you prune it you may not get any flowers.
