Hiya Jomilton

wouldnt really put blight affected plants in compost bins.  Most of us don't  generate enough heat in our heaps.  Hope you enjoy your beans 

busy elsewhere this morn but transplanted hefty double white hellebore and dug up some large clumps of flower and well over 7' plant elsewhere.  Needed to see what they would look like next summer and they look good in their new spot.  

Miscanthus Gold Bar looking splendid now.  Mine stands 9' plus tall yet the books and suppliers say it grows 4' or so.    Gold Bar is a far better plant than Zebrinus with quadruple the gold bands on each leaf.

Marc, those pansies and violas will flower into late spring. tulips will then take over the colour. Then keep tulips in and plant up some summer stuff like bidens, pelargoniums, osteospermums, etc. etc.

Beautiful day.  Wall to wall sunshine.  

Hey!  My ears are burning!  At least Susan is (rightfully) respectful ....I am indeed SIR Verdun.  In my own mind I am deserving of that title .  Not Welsh.  Cornish with a touch of Aussie.    g'day dreckly 

busy this mo but will soon move a few plants. 

Careful Punkdoc with your "evil intentions of retribution".   I empathise but better to enjoy your escapism via garden visits, etc.

Dove, sorry to tell you but Father Christmas passed away over the weekend after a sleight accident
