Dare I say.

I am sure we can accomodate all sorts on here; those who just want to read the posts [although of course we do not know who they are ], those who like to ask questions, those who like to answer them, and those who like a natter.

The only exceptions should be those who want to be abusive, or dismissive of others. Perhaps it is also best to avoid politics, religion or sex { although personally I am fond of at least 2 of those ] Many will remember the thoroughly unpleasant situation that we got into last year. Since then things have been great, lets all use the site however we like.

The baskets sound large enough, so it sounds to me as though it is lack of light.

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.

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.
