Obelixx, I know it is a quarterly report, but it seems a little odd, that this one was released, whilst others have been withheld, citing " Purdah ".

I may be being too cynical.

Hosta please pass on my congratulations as well. I knew nothing about the type of Primula they grow and now want to find out more.

I am sure I can find a space for some, somewhere.

Wow, it is hot out there. 34 in the greenhouse.

I swear the Ricin have grown 6 inches in the last 2 days.

Colocasia has just been planted out, getting too big for the living room.

Time for a cool drink I think.

Government have just released the immigration figures, convinient or what?

Any thing that involves fire has got to be good and if it doesn't work, at least it will be fun.

Morning all.

Very warm.

I too shall be voting for Chris Beardshaw's garden. I am not sure whether this is an appropriate thing to say, but if I was gay, he would be my ideal sort of man.

Today will largely be spent moving Cannas and Dahlias around the garden, trying to find their ideal positions.

Then I shall be sitting down to "admire" my handiwork.

Tomorrow, I will hate what I have done and move everything again.

Evening all.

Just back from the city, after a meal in a new restaurant called Joro. Run by a group of young guys who like to forage, out in Derbyshire and the food was great.

Not seen much of Chelsea yet, but I know there were major issues, in that big sponsors did not want to commit money, just after the BREXIT vote.

There is obviously a trend away from "garden" gardens and towards landscape pastiches. Surely there should be room for both.

I heard Chris Beardshaw being very damning about the judges on last night's programme. I have always found him intelligent, thoughtful and with bucket loads of horticultural knowledge.

No doubt he will win the peoples choice best garden.

Thank you for your kind wishes.

OH has taken the day off and is helping move the Cannas out of the living room. [ She is fed up of the slug trails ]

I hope that all of us posters realise that the atrocities are nothing to do with religion, but acts of terrorism.

I noticed that many of the kind acts after the bomb, were performed by Muslims.

I do not have a faith, but am aware that faith is what will help many people to get through this.

They are Thalictrum. they will cope with shade, but prefer a moist soil.

Such a sad day.

Could not get motivated in the garden, so sat and listened to the radio and tried to think about some of the acts of kindness that were shown after the barbarity.

I have to believe, that in the end, goodness will prevail, although at the moment it is hard to do.
