Cuttings From Pinks

Dawn, you dont need a video.  Look at your plants and pull shoots....3 to 4".....(pipings) off, tidy them up and pot them up in compost.  Water, cover with polythene bag and leave outside in a spot out of direct sun.  They root quickly.  You will have flowering plants next summer

Still raining here.

my hosta First Frost arrived and potted up.  Looks quite nice. But now I've got my eyes on Stained Glass......will pinch Dove's

honesty here.  Climate change is NOT happening.  

Wont go into it all again but an academic who should know better loudly proclaimed to me how bad it is all going to be.  What a silly man.  He called out an electrician to replace a fuse 

climate change "experts" are tripping over themselves......they are so focussed on their highly paid jobs that they fail to see how often they change their definitions.  

Before anyone jumps in with the usual accusations I am not deluded or in a state of denial.  Like most others,  we KNOW the climate change lobby is wrong.  And one way or another they are costing us all a fortune

summer continues with a heatwave this weekend...a pleasant 23 here and a torrid 30 plus in the south east. however this  is not climate change.  But just watch out for the "experts" renewing their climate change huff and puff as temps soar

Morning Susan

beat you to Beachgrove.  Recorded but watched it late last night.  Shame that Chris Beardshaw is leaving to go touring with Ken Dodd as one of the diddy men ..........oops!  I'll get my coat.  

Well, the rain is not happening so far.  Just took spike down to overlook the beach.

salvia love and wishes duly planted...behind deschampsia goldtau.  

It's my birthday

Bacon butty?    Yum yum 

hello folks.  Raining here.  Yes actual real rain.  Well, not heavy but forecast to be for the morning.  Pleased to see it....for a limited time!   Shame really as I wanted to water the lawn

expecting replacement hosta this morning....gone for First Frost.  Not in Hostafa's league but got a few varieties now.  A garden withiut a hosta lacks something I think.  The garden I visited last week had none
