Claire.....ASK for bigger discount.  50%?  You will get a lot more than that so go for it

Beat me to it Fairy.

no, do not hack it all down. Simply remove all flowered stems right to the ground.  You will then be left with a nice  foliage plant through to autumn Tim

Just a word about golden is a beautiful and underrated foliage plant.  It isn't a fast or tall grower in my experience.

The athletics and the boxing for me.  

But here in Cornwall we are part of the greatest female rowing team ever.....Helen Glover gold again. 

Good to see a united GB for a short while anyway 

Poorly Euonymus

A pest of some sort Keen...weevils love euonymous both to feed on and to breed but it's not their fault this time.

choice....spray or let mother nature take care of it.  I would spray as a one-off

a lot of critters attacking all sorts of plants this year.....the mild winter has prob allowed numbers fo build up

No time to garden today but I did follow up the bargain hunting when I passed the gc.

even better value today but the real bargains on the good stuff will be gone by tomorrow.  a couple of friends got some bargains too.

will pot them up later...looks odd but I always cut off the flowers when I pot on.  They will make cracking plants next year for a to-be- revamped border.

hope lilysilly got her bargains today

Salvia greggii and Clem Daniel Deronda

Morning Dove

pretty much what I would do with Daniel too 

I would take cuttings of salvia now and move it and clematis in late Sep/October.  

I find most salvias move surprisingly successfully whatever their size
