Makes lovely compost.

This seems to happen from time to time. I dont know if I am correct, but I have always put it down to excessive damp. The plants will be fine.

Morning all, lovely and sunny here, but hole digging has left me a bit immobile. I think I shall just be sitting outside today, enjoying the garden.

A day for all to remember the sacrifices made by others for us.

Hope all the workers have a good POETS day, and lets hope for good weather for all the planned weekend activities.

In high summer it would not be possible to get access to several of my borders without leaving a scene of complete carnage. This is a great excuse for not weeding until stuff starts to die back.

Identify plant

Yes, agree with Nut. Interestingly it is the second Sorbaria we have identified in the last week.

hydrangea anomala ssp. petiolaris dying

I am with Fg. on this one. Although you can of course grow anything in a pot, Ithink that these are suffering. I think the fact that it is 3 years is telling. They have probably outgrown the container and exhausted the soil nutrients.

Plant ID's please

I think:

1. is a Heuchera

2. maybe a Thalictrum.

Turned out all right in the end, even had a bit of sun.

Had just finishrd tidying the house when the cleaner came and moved everything. Why do they do that?

Dug some big holes for my Cannas, but they are still intheir pots as I am not sure they are quite right yet. The hot border is the most fiddly, as it is all tender stuff, so its layout changes every year.

glad you had a good holiday Stacey.

Good luck with that cv. Mrs G.

Off to cook tea, see you later.

Need some more id's please!
