Yep, I know who you mean JIMMY.  I have taken back plants after a couple of years if they die or look sickly.  Yes, always keep those receipts

Grass cut, planted out echinaceaa and cosmos, potted on my almost freebie coleus plants, planted out large canna, a couple of large dahlias and watered a little in prep for rain due tonight and tomorrow morning.  Supposed to be quite a bit of rain so it should do a lot of good.   With all the recent heat I'm expecting a lot of growth.

Could be watering or any number of things I guess Mousey. The only thing I think it was perhaps wet cold compost

I would simply let it be have repotted.  Dont Over water....I hardly water mine....and keep it in the sun.  

I cut mine back a few weeks back.  they are a little slow this year in responding but they are now doing that

Lovely scene Fairy.  So different to here.  We all want something else dont we?   Down here its more about the coast, beaches and everything maritime.  Nothing like what you have here 

really hot.  because there's no wind it is quite steamy and humid.  Not weather for working hard in

do need rain though.  A good spell of it.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Posted: 20/06/2015 at 23:15 gold top milk.  Drink loads of it.  But our local milkman stopped supplying it. he also delivered early am from supllies evening before. And often the milk quickly went sour. cant remember fhe cost but it was expensive. 

Dont worry folks.....milk will cost more.  

Shall we run a campaign now to support our local garden centres?  Support them in their desire to raise prices.  Shoot me for buying online
