Plants I won't be growing again next year

Posted: 20/08/2016 at 09:34

I like orange too, teamed with reds and yellows, in my hot border. Have Cannas, Dahlias, Geums, Calendula, Crocosmia etc. Although I have to admit that, the bed is best viewed with shades on.

Sadly L. Queen Victoria was destroyed by slugs, which is a shame, as it went beautifully in that colour scheme,

Funny isn't it, my Harts Tongue ferns grow and spread beautifully in the dry stone walls that line some of the stream, but if I try to plant them in soil, they just sulk.

Yes it is Verdun.

Who started the EU angle...... oh yes it was you, followed by your sidekick.

Why did the EU need mentioning, they are not in the Olympics?

S##t stirrer. This is a fun Olympic thread, but there is always someone who wants to agitate.

Hi all.

Woke up to a very strange coloured sky, hard to describe, red and black, looked like something bad is going to happen!

SM done, only person in the store, love it, but a bit sad that my days revolve around how easy the shopping will be.

Waiting for the storm.

Have a good day.

Just heard an interview with Alistair Brownlee, asking about how he celebrated winning.

"A burger, a beer, and some cake." [ Alistair ]

" Some cocktails later" [ interviewer ]

" No mate, I am from Yorkshire" [ Alistair ]

I may be wrong, but my understanding, gleaned I think from the British Ladybird people, is that you should not kill Harlequins, as they are very good at killing a number of pests, and in larger quantities than native ladybirds.

I believe there is also evidence, that the native species is fighting back against the alien.
