7 is fine for nearly everything.

No ph is perfect for everything.

As long as border is sunny, both your suggestions would work.

Could consider some Miscanthus sp. as well.

Rudbeckia Herbstonne would be nice in combination with the above.

That looks like a fairly severe case of Verticillium wilt to me.

If so I am afraid that the tree will die and should be removed, before other plants become infected.

Wait to see if others agree with me.

Plant them, or they will dry out.

Hi all.

Lovely sunny day here, but bitterly cold in the wind.

We have just been for a short stroll round the Botanical Gardens, lovely Autumn colours, a vast array of berries and lots still flowering, the Heperanthas, in particular looking great.

had to stop every 100 yards for a rest, but still lovely.

I have managed to persuade OH, who is more stubborn than me [ yes really ], that she is in no fit state to work at the moment and needs a few days off.

Glad to see you are having fun Chicky.

Has anyone seen Clari?

I have a feeling that it was me she had her eye on Fidget.

I know why she is stressed Obelixx, I just don't know how I can help. I am trying to be upbeat, but she knows that I am terrified about what will happen next and no amount of being upbeat, can disguise that.

Glad you had a good walk fairy, great place to be lain to rest.
