Morning Purpletrace

Plant them back into the soil, not too deep and mark with a very short stick so,you know where they are.  (wish I followed my own advice there cos I'm often digging up cyclamen )

They will flower in autumn or spring 

Lackluster lavender

Morning Yarrow

Cut lavendar now and you will forfeit flowers for this year.  Cut back hard but not into old wood and you will not lose your lavendars.  

If mine, I would enjoy what flowers you have and when they start to fade prune back.

When containers are top dressed....with grit etc.....it's difficult to tell how moist the compost actually is.  However move gavel aside and push your fimger deep into the compost.  It may be too dry.  Lavendars still need to be watered now and then.  liquid feed too.

Morning forkers

Beautiful sunny warm morning.  Just watered (too many) containers.  Less growth now and more flowers 

Hectic day yesterday,  helping friend in morning, string out stuff for my niece in the paNdnd then my mum ace over all confused. A possible small stroke but my feeling is she just got frightened and panicked.  Anyway she stayed overnight in hospital. Difficult to be objective with your own mother.......how much is attention seeking?  Late last night in the hospital she was apologetic and very "with it".  Ah well!  

Will send sunshine to those without it

GW was enjoyable last night.  

Love your garden though is excellent.  Ok,,it's flawed......shoving hundreds of plants in knowing many will not survive ......but a lovely sentimental, caring programme based on gardenIng.  Corny?  Perhaps.  But titchmarsh at his best.  And his team just as impressive.  Lovely

Hello folks

Hops those poorly and upset are recovering well now

Rain overnight and a shower is possible this morn.  The sort of rain plamts love though.    Feeling warm.

Helping friend this morn and then sorting issues for my niece later

Enjoyed football last night.  Real football.  Skill, pace, teamwork, excitement and individual brilliance.  So, nothing like football England contrive.  Trouble is Germany are through and will win the tournament.  (nothing against Germany except that they always win but then they are so good )

Enjoy your day everybody.

Plant feeding

Many of these liquid summer feeds are similar.  Phostrogen is still hard to beat.  Dont really grow many annuals but it's good to build up foliage initially and then allow them to flower.  Once a week is fine.
