Stipa gigantea........dont t cut before spring.  Then remove dead and old leaves.  Dont plant where too wet in winter.......you could place a piece of glass over it using short canes to,keep it dry.  Plant it where the golden oats can dance in the sun.

My post registered late for some reason.  Being an unedikated Cornishman I can't fathom anything!  

Still scorching here.  Just took my dog....he is now puffed out 

KEF, yes,  joked a bit with the nurses but no buns   However, my mum's friend is on the mend albeit very thin and frail.

My niece's boss is giving her a hard time for giving in her notice,she was very upset and I feel like intervening.  However, she has to toughen up a bit now and deal with a bit of aggro.  She expects me to sort everything and come up with wonderful solutions.  

On way back from hospital I called in on my fav local nursery.....got another ( new to me)leucanthemum and 3 double white argyranthemums......all with discount,of course   All planted as I knew exactly where they were to go.  No more plant buying now...Ive still got lots of plants in pots looking for homes.

Wintersong.....always good to,have a rant   Safety valve and all that   You seem to have had more than your fair share of bad luck there. You are a lady of spirit clearly who speaks her mind.

I am a "speaker up", to put it mildy. Often then I get goodwill voucher for my inconvenience. 

My niece is getting a hard time from her employees because she handed in her resignation today.  Would like to intervene....of course I wouldn't......but I also understand her employees not being happy she's leaving.

Its bloomin' hot."  Must be 25 but prob more than that in my walled garden.

Roof off the car Punkdoc.....lovely. Always had convertibles and hardly ever had roof up.  Fun motoring 

Those lovely 'perenial' foxgloves being touted

You did better than I did break.

My illumination pink lasted 18 months....beautiful non stop flowers all summer.  Meant to divide in autumn but forgot .  Think the wet winter did for them   My feeling is they are more biennial than perennial but if divided annually and potted will be "perennial" that way
