Baza, do you water every day? 

Some plants benefit now from a drastic cut Ladybird asked, can you tell us what plants you have?  

Even in the garden now is the time to cut some long blooming plants back. They will bloom again with renewed vigour

BG is excellent but, ladies, don't go overboard about CB.  He is only 4' tall and offen presents progs on a platform.  However, he knows his stuff so let's be kind to him. 

From bad to worse
