Hiya tracey

Could you add too how sunny or not your garden is, how quick draining it is, is it light or heavy?  ??ou reckon it is alkaline too but do a PH test anyway.  Then we can go to town with suggestions.

My reply was ....on other start again.  I really don't think it will regrow and you will have to put up with an ever worsening dying plant.  Plant again with something else and enjoy it

Good evening everybody.

Bit of misty, drizzly day today but pretty warm...prob 14 degrees or so.

Tend to look after/treat an autistic friend now and then and today we went to pizza hut for all you can eat buffet.   I had to eat so may have looked like I was scoffing food for a pastime but I needed to know if I really liked it.     His mum has had serious cancer treatment too so it gave her some space as well.  And he can talk to me in a way he cannot with other people so it was a good afternoon.  

Stacey has been inspiring me with her chilli posts .......going for them big time this year.

For me only the lenten roses, orientalis, are really wanted in my garden.  Except for Corsicus which is always reliably healthy and evergreen. Niger is always iffy....tried Potters Wheel too but it struggles to be perennial for me.
