Could not sleep, so decided a gentle amble round the garden would cheer me up.

it is beautiful outside, but I can't seem to shake how fed up Last night has made me.

Morning all.

Just off to bed now, after a hugely disappointing night, see you some time tomorrow.

Evening all.

Not around much today as trying to get local supporters out to vote, driving some without transport and generally supporting the cause.

Hope it is worth it.

Off to watch the results.

Oh dear WW., showing our age gap. I saw P. Floyd on the original Dark Side of the Moon tour!

Feeding Cannas

Posted: 07/05/2015 at 12:08

As has been said, Cannas are very thirsty and hungry plants. They can actually be used as marginal plants.

Mine are still indoors, in the living room [ drives OH mad ] and will not go outside till end of May or early June.

In my experience they are less hardy than Dahlias.

Good luck.

That's a shame, I have used them before and found them very good.

Annuals we befriend

I started growing Atriplex in my hot bed about 10 years ago. 1 packet of seeds and now with self seeding it reappears every year.

The same is true of Escholzia, which happily self seed without any help from me.

Getting ready for busy day tomorrow. Like to vote as soon as polls open and then like to stay up all night for the results

Fg. Lovely to have you back.

Which mountains were you in?

Weather terrible here, stuck inside trying to find a movie to watch.

Morning all.

Been in the greenhouse potting on the ever increasing number of seedlings. It is amazing to think that a few weeks ago they were seeds so small I could barely see them. Every year I have doubts that things will grow and usually am proved wrong.

I too am trying not to get involved in other thread, but as some of you know, I find it hard not to stick my oar in.

Have a lovely day, raining hard here and cleaner coming, so I shall disappear out somewhere.
