Why was santas's helper sad?  Because he was in poor elf.  just thought of that.  The spontaneous ones are so much better, aren't they?   Aren't they?  

anyone reconise this plant description? please ?

Nut is soooooo quick off the mark.  Yes veromicasteum.  I grow a few varieties and they are all superb.  I've been singing their praises all year.  

Cannabis, Cangranmafixit?  Mind you it is a very attractive foliage plant.

Morning folks.

dry, calm not too cold.  In fact some sun is forecast.  For a forecast wet week it's going well so far 

oh, Chicky!  Just heard Berlin is closed this weekend

annoying and concerning  doctor on newsnight last night trying to explain (I think) that paedophiles should be understood more.  A guy talking about his love for children aged 4 as though it was the most natural thing in the world.  We simply cannot go down this road 

cannas were hit by the recent mild frost so they will be cut down.  Often cannas last longer.  Oh well!  

It's my birthday

Happy birthday fidget. hope it's a great one.  Would have sent you chocs but ate them. still, it's the thought that counts and I did think about it 

What are you getting rid of...?

They do need better soil though Victoria.  Good soil is essential I think.  Did you provide such a position?

Where to start...

Hello Dan.  Yes post a picture or two.  

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Lyn, yes a bit like that.  Waiting for what seems inevitable but all too real.  .?? My mum is a few months away from 93 but it seems so sad and pathetic that she has dementia in such a short time.  I keep.looking at her to make sense of it.

Victoria, I have  buzz Ivory.  Superb for colour,,length of flowering, for bees and for butterflies.  it isn't small and next year I would expect it to be 6' plus but that's a lot less than normal buddleias. 

its funny, isn't it, what is liked by some is not by others?

Salino I divided Alison Blackman last year and it now thrives in 2 places.  Dividing phormiums enables fresh young rootstocks easily.  I see so many phormiums down here growing as monsters with ugly bare pieces and old tatty colourless leaves
