So warm here.....prob 13 degrees. ,just come back from a walk across the Towans to the beach.   However, light drizzle trying to push in now.

dug up an old convolvulus cneorum a few weeks back and replaced it with a yellow leaf santolina.  pittosporum Tom Thumb stands behind and above.  Needs more thought though cos silver grey looked good there esp when blue Linum also flowers there during the summer.  Maybe the curry plant or has anyone got an idea for a low growing silvery plant?

Lyn, I would cut back your violas.  Give a light feed say end of the month. 

tete a tete?  They will need good light as they die back so can they stay indoors for a while longer?  I would then plant in the garden

Mahonia soft caress

An article today about mahonia soft caress has re-awakened my interest in this plant.  After researching it I thought it was a little too vulnerable to disease and flowered too sparsely. 

Anyone growing this?  Does it flower well?  Any problems? 

Onion weed

They smell strongly of onions, grasslike and prolific.  They spread by bulbs and seed.  They flower now right through to spring. Pauline, they are of the allium family and what a promiscuous family they can be.  Best dug up rather than pulled.

Barney, agree with Lyn. which Coast are you on?  I'm on the west Cornwall coast and your choice here would be a wider one

most politicians.  They should be replaced by business people who actually understand what they are doing.  And the monarchy.  Sorry folks.  I know for every anti monarchist there is a royalist but they really are a shambolic overpaid and over privileged bunch.

sounds like Triquetrum to me.  A pain.  Don't have it here but a friend has it amongst Her lavendar hedge.  Not sure glyphosate is very effective ....it will kill the plants you see but persistent treatment is needed.  Digging out whole clumps with soil intact is effective before it flowers again.

Get  rid of it as soon as you see it or your problems with it will become much worse
