Be careful what you wish for!

Started applying nematodes and biblical rain started, now look like a drowned rat, but at least the nematodes should be watered in.

Morning all.

Typical Spring day, rain, sun and wind.

Watered pots and need to water on some nematodes to attack my slugs, waiting for a bit more rain first.

have not seen new gardening prog. yet, don't like instant makeovers, but do like a good design and seeing the plants, will I'm sure be fun.

Busy, busy, busy.

Lovely day here: planting, weeding, dividing and potting on. As many jobs as I have done, my list is actually longer now than when I started.

Verdun, some times there are plants you just have to have, even if you know there is nowhere to put them. The C.hoisya might go well with Persicaria Red Dragon.

Pot Marigolds [ Calendula ] and Marigolds [ Tagetes ] are very different plants, the first are hardy and the second are not.

Generally hardy annuals come from all over the world, half hardy plants come from warmer climates.

Please help identify

It is a Skimmia, although not sure which one.

Morning all.

Hot and humid here, but very dark clouds.

Like others have said, I feel the need to get stuff done today.

Just heard my first cuckoo, sadly quite a rare sound round here now.

Have a good day.

I hope things work out for you Flumpy.

Plant 1 is a Ligularia, can't remember what species. Lovely plants, like a bit of shade and lots of moisture.

Agree with 2 and 3
