What's the star in your garden right now

I used to grow zephine drouhin over an arch until it suffered badly with rust, black spot, etc.  in mid summer I used to cut back hard and the resulting growth was clean.  However, without foliage or flowers in mid summer it was an eye sore so now have honeysuckles there

Rotating Beans Yes / No

I don't rotate runner beans now. They are in the best spot but I generously incorporate compost into the trench every autumn

always best to rotate though

Monty don new series

Watching recorded episodes.  Interesting but patchy.  It's a prog about gardens but so far nothing inspires me.  Monty tries a different way.  I'm sure he will inspire potential gardeners to have a go though

Been busy too digging up and tidying plants.  Keeping most of my cannas in the ground though.......want even more impact next summer from them.  Digging up some tender perennials and replacing with wallflowers for the winter

misty overcast day with just a promise of sunshine now n then
