Good news fidget......pleased for you

So hot esp this afternoon.  Painted my chimney......drove me potty! 

Saw my mum in hospital,this evening. when a friend saw her this afternoon it sounded like my,mum was at death's door......bit of a Job's comforter.  However, my mum was lively, happy and ok.  Yes, she is confused and that won't go away  but it was a fun visit.  

My dog's birthday tomorrow ...11 years old .  I have been told to get him a card....what?   A card?   I understand the goodies but I guess I will have to get a card for some peace

Like your style Steve...chocolate waffle ! 

Busy morn and contemplating something in the  garden.  So hot I think I'll treat myself to cream apple turnover bought earlier ...oh!  And a lager   There are a couple of areas I can improve on for next year.  Got a load of echinaceas, about 30 I think,  in small pots so might grow in bigger groups.  And one or two plants will be  better elsewhere.  don't want to meddle too much cos, by amd large, it's all looked pretty good 

 

 

Unthrifty Eryngiums

Eryngiums are dying down now;   Just normal.  they seem to do this  earlier than a lot of other perennials but it is nearing autumn time .  Got couple of different vsrieties and they are all "dead" looking.  I cut off dying foliage and await new growth in spring. 

(is that avatar a good likeness ?)

Thanks fishy 

What plants should I be feeding now?

Posted: 04/09/2014 at 10:02

Agree with Lyn.

Granular fertilisers generally take a few weeks before plants can absorb them.  Organic more so. the blood element in fish blood and bone though provides nitrogen quite quickly

Sometimes I will lightly autumn feed hellebores but really after flowering is feeding time
