I went there about a month ago.... lovely place. As we sailed along in the train there was a gorgeous perfume from something which I couldnt identify.... a bit like lavender, but not quite. Couldnt see any tho, or anything else it might have been... anyone else find that? If so... What was it??  Really strong it was, and lovely.

My Tomatillos are being odd..... spitting their lanterns behind them, but still growing in

a naked way!  Wonder if it was too hot for them earlier on.

The bottle brush flowers are !/4 normal size and finished very quickly too.

The Crocosmia are twice as tall as normal... peering over my 4 1/2 foot high wall.

What a strange year!

And lets not mention Ants.......

They will flower eventually but may take a year or 2. Depends if you want more of the same or not..........

Ive got Champagne Rhubarb..... lovely stuff, with sticks about 3 feet long, lots of juice and makes superb wine! Really robust plants about 4 feet across. A mix of red and green stalks so you can choose what colour you want too.

Cadging spares from friends helps too, or taking bits from their plants to grow on. I always take a plastic bag with me when visiting a garden...... bits drop off all sorts of things and lots of them will grow!  Wanted a Bay tree so bought a pot of Bay... and there were 15 separate bits in it,   Have just passed on the rest via raffles and pursuasion. Box grows well too if you want to grow Box Balls.

Ive found them to be unpredictable  too. Any tips on how to keep them going after they have flowered???
