Instead of a hug Orchid can I have the money instead? 

New lawn

Not cut it for,6 weeks?  New to me.  

If grass is growing well, it's not wet and your blades are set high a light mowing should be fine.  It's what  would do.  Regular light mowing is good

Nice to see you punkdoc.  Glad Glastonbury went well. Difficult being a "caring" person and easy for others to be judgemental. Also our own stress levels at times affect how caring we can be 

A few heavy showers today......quite a novelty.  But bright between and signs are good for this afternoon

Different look and feel today.  Rain about apparently but dry here locally. Glad I cut grass yesterday pm as well as deadheaded, tidied and planted out a large canna Durban before any rain. 

 

 

What's the star in your garden right now

Fairy, Iveyii is a very under rated shrub.  I have lucifer in front and purple berberis  to its side.  

Cannas now about to flower all over the garden..........orange, red and yellow at 7' plus tall.  The heat has really  pushed them lately

Is there a yum yum thread?    Free samples?

(my local bakery is brilliant....always a supply of tasters on display. Trouble is because my taste buds are poor I need 2 or even 3 tasters)

What to grow under eucalyptus tree?

Geranium Orion or rozanne would do well there and look good too..

Alstromeria tubers

Agree with Dave.  Individual tubers/roots are so small. I dug up a beautiful princess lily 3 or 4 years ago and the roots fell apart. Gathered several together and now, this year have grown and  flowered superbly.  Yes, can be and is a little invasive yet the small roots can perish on transplanting.

Removing stubborn ornamental grass
