Tony Blaah - weasel words from a weasel person! I noticed he managed to do that affected wobble / broken voice thing when he was 'apologising'. I despise him. 


I was thinking about David Kelly too. He seemed such a gentle quietly spoken man torn apart by politicians.

Which cosmos is this if it is?

Morning!


Nice to see you DD - and everybody else too. Well done Pat - first steps mastered - we will expect some of your excellent botanical drawings next week!


I'm off to Helmingham Hall today with Dove, Nut, Panda and Wonky.

Weather forecast is good & the gardens look beautiful. Cake will be consumed at some stage and Wonky is bringing plants 


Best  jump in the shower then - SYL

I have grown a mix of Rubenza and the yellow cosmos for the first time this year. They are in bud. If the Rubenza open to this colour I will be well chuffed!

Glad you're ok DD - keeping busy is sometimes the only way to get through difficult times.


Chin up.

We did have more than a little bit of Roger  - and you know the sun will shine again when he needs to change his shirt on court. I maybe enjoyed that a little bit more than I should

What a fantastic afternoon of tennis!


 Can't remember when I've enjoyed the quarter finals so much. The Querry match looked good too but I only saw bits of it.


Nice day tomorrow to calm down & prepare for Friday's semis.


Might have a quick look at the footie now - do we all have a little bit of Welsh dragon blood in us today?

Will the Murray match end before the football starts? 


When can I get my dinner? 

Chelsea chop question

Posted: 06/07/2016 at 19:38

My Centaurea flower in May. I regularly deadhead them back to a side flower shoot which prolongs the flowering season but eventually theyvget straggly and floppy. I then cut them to the ground, they reshoot and produce a 2nd burst of flowers in August. 


I guess you could Chelsea chop them in April but the idea of the CC is to get sturdier, bushier plants and I dont think it would necessarily have that affect on Centaura. I grow mine through flower supports which helps keeps them upright.


I don't grow Achillea so can't advise on those,
