Thanks dove lol..... Where to start with my chilli seed list.... I have a lot away this year to get people growing....dan-c the bhut jolokia will take a while to flower and produce fruits. If they are in the greenhouse you should see a result but their growing period is about 160 days which is normally too long for the uk unless in heated greenhouse... However I overwinter mine to produce fruits next year! I as you can tell am a bit of a chilli freak! Will post A list of seeds available a little later..... And if anyone is reading that had my chilli seeds and growing tips how are they doing?

Huge hydrangea

Hi all.... Hope ur well and your gardens are rewarding all your hard work and effort.... I have a very old hydrangea in my garden which until this year has never really grown much.... See now following Monty's advice I have been leaving the flower heads on and looking after it a bit more. This year it has exploded. It's amazing it's smothered in blue and pink flowers and has grown huge spilling over the lawn by at least 2 feet. i am going to have to give it a severe chop in the spring but how hard ( and I realise it will affect next years flowers)  and how far can I chop it back? Help x

slugs and snails.... the population id=s rife in my garden this year as well... went on holiday to 6 lupins in my garden came back to 2!!!! if the marigolds are in pots then you can buy copper tape to put round them to prevent the slime deamons climbing past it ( they hate copper) i also went out the other morning and discovered much to my horror a slug orgy ( it wasn't a nice sight) and low and behold all of my beans have been stripped of leaves!!!! Good luck int he fight agains slime evil

Morning all..... Hope ur gardens are all blooming well lol..... Just thought I would pop in but omg how long did it take to get here!!!!! Court should finish next week so will be hopefully back with you all a bit more!!!!!!!! My garden is doing fab ( although the slugs did get rid of about 4 lupins when I was on holiday!!!) my wild swan is fantastic lol I talk to it daily!!!! Husband is getting itchy feet to move somewhere with a bigger garden which I'm all for as I am officially out of space ( although the 23 acre plot he saw is well out of our budget!!) my woodland garden is ace so thanks for all your recommendations ..... My fave view is of the towering pink and white fox gloves as you walk into my woodland garden ATM......
