Lily, did you prune it last year?  Or perhaps,pruned it late in the summer?  Cut to strong non flowered shoots.

certainly hot now.  A pleasant light breeze too ....luverly  

checked spring onions and no sign of pests.  Prob is dry there area in veg patch  I tend not to water very much.

and yet another kniphofia with flower spike...this time Orange Vanilla.  Aconitums now opened as are  veronicastrums and heleniums but by the weekend I think everything will be blooming like mad.   Not  many delphiniums now but they have done their bit.

Hello Forkers

Feeling extremely warm.   clearly will be hot today.  Hotter still tomorrow 

more echinaceas in flower this morning and Papya popsickle has its first flower spike forming.  The very warm night has produced plenty of growth on most everything

No.  Why dig it up and "investigate the roots"?  You will kill it for sure.     so, you investigate the roots....then what?

treat it for vine weevils.  Won't harm the plant. See if it recovers in a couple of weeks. if the soil os dry water it....its usually over winter that a wet soil is a problem to rhodos.

Meant to say earlier.  My cousin seems to be reasonably ok after his stroke.  Still confused though,,his word connection not good and his right arm "not feeling right".

compared to others in the ward though he appears very lucky

spoke with his son today to work out how best to support him. 

a stroke has to rank highly in the scary graph.  Something so sudden, without warning, yet so destructive
