overwintering cannas

Monty Don showed that on Friday night. Cut them down to about 8 inches, put in an old bucket, cover with old compost or leaf mould and put in a cool dry place, no light needed. Water very occasionally, just so they don't driy out completely. Although I must say, I just let my dry out and soaked them in Spring for an hour or two before planting, they came up big and strong.

I've been retired for 4 years now, bliss! The only problem is, I find myself procrastinating, i.e. thinking to myself I don't have to do this today, can do it tomorrow or the day after, especially things I hate doing, like housework, cleaning windows etc. It's a hard life!

The only thing I would like to rip out is our thuja hedge, but at least it keeps grockles from peering in from the road! Am too attached to everything else.

Hi Brumbull, yes, can't remember how many pages back, but it was a photo of a harbour or marina, somewhere on your travels.

I've gone back a few pages and looked at all the lovely photos, very enjoyable everyone.

Brumbull, quick question. A few pages back you posted a photo of a harbour with yachts. Could you tell me which harbour that was? I saw a boat in it that looks very much like our old boat. Thanks.

Talking of ctting trees back, my mission for today is to finish cutting the hedge back. It is mostly the dreaded leylandii (planted not by us but about 30 years old) It's not too bad if kept small. There is honeysuckle and clematis montana going through it so looks a bit wild but quite pretty.

Good to see Verdun back. I'll have to fight for a slice of cake now.

Same here Pam, ours are about the same age, were here when we moved in and I hate them, but at least they block the view from the road. As my borders are mostly along the hedge and their roots grow out at least a meter, I'm always surprised that what I have planted there manages to grow!

Glad to see you too, Verdun!
