Dahlia outside

Depends whether we are going to get anymore frosts. Where I am, we can still get frosts up until end of May / first week of June.

Buxus - should I dig it out

To my mind, that looks terrible [ sorry ]

I would get rid.

Don't be too nice to me fairy [ oh go on then! ]. Those of us who do it, get at least as much back as we put in. Most of us who do this stuff are adrenaline junkies and the stuff we do, is just not available in the NHS.

I miss the hills so much, although still regularly to look at them and obtain so much vicarious pleasure from your accounts and photos.

Do these need repotting?

Are the roots, showing out of the bottom of the pot?

If they are, then re-pot.

I agree with you all.

I know that what I do to try and give my life more meaning, is not much fun for those around me, that is why I have never told my family about any of my trips, even though my first was to Afghanistan back in the 1980's.

Secretly I rather enjoy being told what to do.

Hi all.

Cloudy with a little drizzle.

Today, I shall be doing, mostly what I am told, I just haven't been told what that will be yet.

Well if I say so myself, that was a lovely dinner.

Prawn and mussel  risotto and a bottle of Cremant de Loire.

Did not see GW, as OH has been watching Masterchef and wanted to watch the final.

You deserve so much more Clari.

You have answered your own question kennington.

If you prune in spring and they don't flower well and they tend to be long flowering shrubs, then as Nut says, prune them in winter.

Why have these leaves gone brown?

Eye of frog and toe of newt.

Please identify and how do I get rid of it?

Posted: 12/05/2017 at 17:50

As weeds go, I don't find it too much of a problem.

Just pull it up when you see it and you can keep it under control.
