Lovely morning dividing and replanting.

I love the idea of getting plants for free, but also find some of my plant positioning is a bit more imaginative with divisions, probably because they are freebies, so I am less concerned about their future health.

Bad luck on the car fg, and you with the tele DD.

Now going to lie on the sofa, and watch the first part of "The Night Of ", a new series, which has had very good reviews.

Hi all.

Very muggy here.

Just made a big discovery, I can see the computer screen much better, if I wear my glasses!

Plan today, is to move a few plants, to places where they may look better. However long I garden I still struggle to throw out plants which I don't think earn their keep. I prefer to keep moving their location, hoping to eventually find the perfect location.

Must be more ruthless.

Apple and Blackberry crumble for breakfast!

Have a good day.

The pictures + as nut says, the ease of removal of plant, roots and all, really does NOT suggest JKW.

Shall I carry on with these seedlings?

Serious Delphinium growers, will often cover the crowns of the plants with grit in Autumn. This will prevent slug attack on the newly emerging foliage in Spring.

What did you learn from your garden this year?

And I thought it was us blokes who are always in trouble for objectifying women.

Have to say, I would not kick Demelza out of bed.

Pots - yes.

Spring flowering - yes + early summer.

Bees - some have very complex flowers, so no, but some yes.
