Wait a little while longer for the cuttings rosemummy.  Agree £8 well spent if you take cuttings.  When you do, mix perlite....50/50 .....with mpc.  

Shrub border done :-)

Pat, think this is in the episode I will watch later   

What do you think the prim and proper poms will make of Costa?

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Tigs, looks excellent 

so hot in the garden.....there is a cold wind but not in this walled garden. 

Heathers trimmed and tidied, lychnis coronaria alba planted between them and cotinus royal purple.  Neighbour kindly offered me a lager....said I looked hot (hmmm I mean hot as in opposite of cold !!! )

planned to plant out 3 argyranthemums where wallflowers are fading now but the next 2 nights could be cold so I will hang fire.

arranged another visit to help cousin with his stroke-caused aphasia.....we read and pronounce words etc.  Think it helps.  He is one of the lucky stroke victims  there is a lack of official therapy help down here....."5th richest country and all that!"

Monty has grown on me, I must confess.  It can't be an easy job being in the public eye doing your best but constantly being judged.  I enjoyed GW last night, BG earlier and will enjoy Gardening Australia later today.  

( on the downside.....baaaad news today.  And I am very upset about it.    ............






my local bakery have stopped making Nelson Slices )

it's ok!  I'll be ok, probably

Hmmmmm!  Anyone buying a tulip spade is prob a bit eccentric . "Eccentric" is good 

an ordinary spade is same thing 

but, Monty does love his old tools's ok to show them off as far as I'm comcerned.  I have a collection of old pens and now and then show them off  Why  do so many ponder the petty things?  Does it really matter????
