B3, banter,,provocative ...but inoffensive personally....stuff doesn't go down well here, does it? 

as with texting it is difficult to convey views on the forum as they were meant.  The EU is topical right now and we should exchange views about it.  opinions, strong opinions, don't hurt anyone but they are often misinterpreted.

I am happy to join in vigorous debate so let's see what happens.  Got slaughtered last time

Possibly over watering peter.

Maybe take them back under cover if rain is likely

Geum keenongreen, I grow them on in pots for a couple of reasons

i like to grow them on so when I plant them out they can make an immediate impact.  Nothing worse than seeing tiddly specimens in the border

gauras are best delayed planting out because they flower later .....I have them in the ground..overwintered well outside.....and small plants from cuttings last year.  These are now already in 1 litre pots and will go out from bigger pots in a few weeks.  

So they come on better in pots and they are also waiting whilst I find the right spot in relationship to other summer plants

if you like gauras check out Corries and gold  leaves and white flowers.  A beauty.

Nice...have magic fountain delphs too......geumkeenbutgreen 

very fond of gauras too, esp the white Whirling Butterflies.  I grow these on into 2 or 3 litre pots before planting out cos they start flowering a little later than many summer perennials.  

Planted out more tender perennials,,yanked out a few wallflowers, cut grass and tied in tomatos.

a very warm day, no wind so a little humid.  Sun for a while this afternoon but mist never too far away.  Lovely day for a walk to the beach and for gardening.
