Got my legs crossed, fingers and toes-it is bloody uncomfortable but if it produces a result then will go with the flow.

I have been to Bourneville- many years ago

I found a slug the other day around 5 inches long-(sad case measured it)-it went into space.

i think I hate you all (sorry jealousy is so unbecoming

Not a single flower from my one remaining pot this year. The other 4 pots didn't make it through the winter. For the last 10 years or so I have always had the most amazing displays , In fact its only got about 6 leaves on it. I was hoping it was just late - like everything else but after being in Somerset at the weekend where they are all going mad, I think it is just going to be a rubbish year for me this year. 

Not to make you feel better but my white agapanthus has about 18 flower-heads-will post a picture ina few days to rub salt into the wound-and 3 weeks later neighbours is still going strong-he is on the move-I could nick it?

Hollyhock Rust

Have had to cheat a bit here to be sure of my facts but I believe there are different rusts that effect different types of plants-whether chive rust and hollyhock rust are the same I honestly don't know-but found this that probably explains it better

Are you keeping the same plants to flower again?

The reason I ask is if you treat as bi-enniel and discard after flowering then raise fresh ones for flowering the following year -that might work

My impression is that rust resistant varieties partially resist it -but the conditions this year have been ideal for rust and the spores do remain in the soil

Alina usually has some good advice on this-hopefully she will pick it up
