I wonder Peanuts if your rozanne is growing in wet ground?  My own plants are mound forming. 

What's the star in your garden right now

Nice Lesley.  For some reason most of my lupins  are blue.  

Tempted to go for some I saw at Chelsea......some wonderful new varieties now. 

Netting for carrot

Fleece is the ideal thing for carrot fly. You can keep it in place all summer if you want to.  Keep it fairly loose to enable unfettered growth though.

Replacing conifers

Hiya Tom

Yes, they are imposing aren't they? 

I think the extra space in your garden, the extra sunlight too, would be good there.  So,,climbers on your fence?  Evergreen and deciduous .......honeysucklees jasmimes, clematis momtana, solanum?  

How do you feel about removing the conifers.?  Up to it?  

Clematis leaves turning brown

I think hogweed has shown you the reason Lesley. 

Camellias

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 20:09

Prune now.  You have a whole growing season for it to make some decent growth.  New growth on camellias is usually very attractive too 

Epsom salts, primarily magnesium, but a great tonic to most plants.  

No, have a go with the camellias.  Lovely shrubs and pretty easy too Philippa

Hot today.  Lovely 

My niece got her dream job .........they told her just as she got back here.  Her deceased mum, she was born just 15 months or so before her mum died, would be so proud of her.   Difficult not knowing your mum 

Great weather now folks
