Fluffy Cloud

Walther Funcke, nice coppery orange.  I cut it back in early June and it makes height of about 2' 6"".   Moonshine too is about the same after the same treatment.  Secret is to grow in poorish,,dryish soil I think.  Terracotta is also nice, for an achillea, at about 3'.  All compact when compared with Cloth of Gold.

Get as big a clump as possible.  Either put in large pot or two or plant in ground.  You could dig it up and put in bin liner with damp soil around if.  Tie it around the rootball and leave in the shade

Morning Trudi.

Some nice comments there.  Just want to add my support..... Cancer and its treatment is a roller coaster ride, isnt it?  Hopefully, it will all go well with ??ou.

I,wouldn't worry too much about your garden...do what you can and enjoy what looks like a lovely garden. Theres no need to rush into anything drastic, is there ?  

Your garden ...as it is....looks a relaxing place to be in so it will probably feature strongly in your recovery. 

Good luck.  Clearly you have support here too

Yes, use glyphosate.  Choose a dry slightly cloudy day......stromg sun can dehydrate treated leaves.  You need at least 5 hours of dry weather for it to work properly.

Morning Grateful Deadhead,

A  very unlikely situation I think.  There aren't that many members on here. 

If you are worried about your neighbour seeing your post just be a little less forthcoming with the info you post.  

If your forum names are not your own there is even less to connect you with anything you say.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Cloudy, dry, still and warm......rain later they say. ,(said rain yesterday but it was lovely)

Picking tomatoes now and loads to come.  Looking healthy and good.    No cheese yet on my swiss cheese plant yet but I'm looking forward to that......cheese and tomato sandwiches.
