Malory Towers! That brings back memories.  I loved those stories. 

Just a quick hello.  About to go out to do some waterings.

Just looked it up out of interest and it is osmanthus fragrans.  Burncoose has it half hardy- temps down to 0 only.

Ah, pinching out.  Missed that bit! Well they're very busy anyway (or were!) maybe a bit of pinching now to encourage those side shoots.

Bekkie, I am Noodle really anyway. But that username wasn't available so I had to be super.  But I'm ok with that

Or exhausting! its the first year this year that I've been "tending" rather than just "refurbishing" ( cutting back, digging out, flattening banks of soil, ground elder hunting) and it's been lovely! I just pretend the not done bits aren't there.

I thought leaving the undone bits to weeds would mean that my new beds would be very weedy but hey haven't been too bad.  I've done ok in terms of pests too (famous last words?) so suspect having wild bits has helped wildlife look after itself.

Great, thanks Lesley.  Rained immediately before.  Rained immediately after.  But amazingly given forecast not alt all during the party!  With half hour to go before the party the organisers suggested calling it off.  but I didn't fancy telling the 3 year old!  So we went ahead and was fab!  Happy child.  Relieved parents.  Thanks dove for sacrificing your washing, and everyone for your well wishes.  I left a note on my other thread (who's favourite food is Fatsia japonica) but as title no longer related to the topic suspect it got lost!  I do seem to be very tangential on this forum!

Went round garden removing broken branches last night due to hailstones.  Gutted as leaves we're looking so healthy and now very scarred.  Dahlias in particular are in a very bad way. I've removed some leaves but didn't want to overdo it.  It's my first time growing them so don't really know anything about them.  Will the leave grow back? There's buds at the bit where the leaf joins the stalk ( what's that called?). Are they leaf buds?
