orchid i have been having a scour and both camps are represented.... I'm gonna chuck her out into the border and see, although its an evergreen so i will need to much and protect in the autumn..... now lets hope someone is selling them at hampton court so i can buy about 6 more!!!! 4 blue and another 2 white should do it!!! I have midnight blue in a pot and it is 'ignored' every year it is full of flowers so........ The nursery is a small independent nursey called oak tree, they geo a lot of their plants themselves and for the majority the rest they have to buy are all english grown. Chicky seeing as you do go to long acres i wold highly recommend a visit to oak tree its opposite the stirrups pub its ace(RG426LH is the postcode) ( oh and their hearty gardeners bfast is only £4.99) Their plants are fantastic and they have a healthy and reasonable tree collection ........

Morning all ....... Right I have decided to clear the bed under the grapevine..... It's a mishmash of tatty plants.. It's a narrow bed in full sun but what to plant mmmmmmmm ....... I want something low- mid height so not to distal act from the grape vine, bushy to fill the space with scented flowers to fill the house with scent as it's by the patio doors in the living room.... The soil is sandy and quite shallow..... So apart from lavender ( which is all I can come up with) any suggestions????????

chilli plants

Mice!!!! Mine fall foul to them every year.... When they are green slugs and snails like A bit of spice as well..... And to top it off birds don't taste or are not affected by capsicum oil which puts the heat into our chillis so have been known to have a peck when other food is sparse

Evening all..... Well this morning when I left for work I had a healthy gooseberry bush out the front now :

 Gone!!! Note the little blighters on the pot and their poop all over the sawdust bale!!! I'm assuming it's sawfly!!!! I have been hit bad by it this year.... Right off to mourn and watch hampton court whilst I plan what to buy on Saturday lol x
