Football season - 2014

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 17:55

I think man united will struggle all season.  The team has lost confidence, arrogance and a winning mentality.  David Moyse should have been given more time.  

I think the European teams have sussed us out and british clubs will struggle in Europe this year.

What's the star in your garden right now

David, funny isn't it?  Scent can be great for some yet awful for others.  However, it's the foliage's so, so, so good.  A little moisture in good soil so quite easy.  No, never really been fond of chrysanthemums but I guess I could reconsider them.  Perhaps it's because I used to grow so many that I tired of them. 

Oh lily pilly never thought of doing a video.  I guess I could  

Chicky, I do have a red helenium but I want to add a couple more. However, red dahlias are providing lots of reds around the garden as it is.

what will go with Delphinium summer nights

How about malva alba?  

Do ??ou want exactly same,height as summer nights?  Annuals or perennials?  And must be from seed?

White new guinea impatiens?  Cuttings taken now will produce lots,of plamts for next year

White Gaura provides elegant  spires all summer. Again a single plamt will provide lots of cuttings. 

Not too informed about seed sown annuals so I'm sure others will respond more fruitfully
