Best way to control rust on fuschias Buttercupdays is to prune hard annually.  This is also effective on hypericums (also prone to rust)

Pat, I think I asked you before but do you watch Gardening Australia?  Is it popular with you?  The presenters all seem excitable in the nicest possible way.  I am currently watching the new series on line. 

Your recent gardening buys.

Morning Tootles 

looks great and a productive day then 

I know  exactly what you mean about the characters at the timber yard.  Real folk who talk in a jargon of their own and full of fun 

Bulbs in gravel

Ooooo Tetley.  

When I first got into gardening I was enchanted by these wonderful blue flowers that cropped up in my garden.  I wanted more and more so I spread them everywhere.  

Now I control them.  have dug up most of them now.  To me they are weeds just as crocus are..........agh!  I can sense the lynchmob already 

david glyphosate will kill them and in gravel is prob the best solution. 

Have you got yours yet?

Tetley, yes, fishermen here are desperately hoping to be free from Europe.  Their livelihoods are constantly threatened by EU.  Our own MP and government minister...already mentioned.....says we need to leave the EU.  He is also a local farmer.  I guess he knows a thing or two 

Each and every one of us needs to take this referendum seriously but ignore any scare tactics.  

Did I say our man won the world heavyweight championship ?

I use Emerald n gold in several spots.  I grow as shaped....mounds or cones....evergreens.  Spring new growth is a delightful creamy yellow.  Contrast with purple foliage ...lovely

What is this red herring about negotiating to leave the EU?  So what if it takes 2 years or more?  Systems won't  collapse. Trade and life will continue as if nothing had changed.  Comparisons with Greenland???   What is that about? 

We need to consider how we will benefit and not dwell on posible negatives.  I have no doubt we will prosper.  Europe is a failing, out dated, bureaucratic mess supporting huge salaries and excesses.  Europe will drag us further and further into debt.  surprising to me that many cannot see this
