HELLO FORKERS!

Roasting here too. just rushed around cutting grass as wet weather is on its way tomorrow or weekend.

treated to a free lunch.....steak and chips but worried now when I fit in my usual lunch 

dicentra Albas flowering beautifully here too.  Hoping a dark red astilbe will flower soon alongside one of them.

spent the morning at a friend's house again......trimming juniper, heathers and planting stuff we bought on Monday.....Nandina, Teuchrium, senetti, phloxes.  Bit hot  really but I started there at about 8am.

Snowy post a picture.  We are all guessing here without seeing the plant.  Or knowing how you treated it over winter

First aware of Japanese knotweed several years ago when a guy had burnt some of it.   Out of the charcoal remains it was growimg again.  In Cormwall I think they're trying different methods of control but not sure if any are successful

But did I get second place Panda? 

Are there any conifer experts who can help?

I grow dwarf cryptomeria vilmoriniana and one whose name escapes me. both are very slow growing cute little mounds. however, I still trim them annually. i grew elegans nana but it needed pruning to keep it compact.

not sure what cutting too much of yours will do Dyers End but cryptomerias do grow biiiiiig.
