Just a suggestion...

I usually spray about now to help prevent peach leaf curl next spring.....did mine today.   Another in early spring just before leaves open.  I still have bordeaux mixture which is very effective.

However, bordeaux mixture is now on the banned list ....Soon we will have no pest or disease controls .......so I don't know what, if any, alternative sprays exist.!

Lorna, glyphosate works very well on bindweed.  It does kill it but it needs to be applied in the growing season, in dry comditions....both at the time of application and for the next 5 hours or so.

Elizabeth, getting into grasses!  Well worth growing them.  I have several large miscanthus currently providing flowers, foliage and structure.  You can have flowers from grasses from spring to late autumn.  

Kathy, made me jump there.  Thought you were referring to me with your last sentence

Convolvulous cneorum is delightful.  Silvery shiny foliage and pure white velvety flowers.  Mounding and cascading. slightly tender in cold areas but perfect all summer long.

Breezy but blue sky and sun.  Warm out of the wind

plants ordered online and first time with this supplier.  The order was dispatched almost immediately but the courier will take up to 5 days.....??  ...that I didn't know about until info about delivery was issued.  Should have suspected something as delivery cost is pretty low.

as long as my plant arrives in good condition all is fine....we'll see 

potted daffodil bulbs planted out and a little more cutting back.

No CHRISC there really is no point planting out small plants in the garden.  They would be overwhelmed.  They will be far better, bigger in fhe spring   You lose nothing by this protection

Pelargoniums are really very easy to propagate and I agree with Dave.  They need to be dry.  They rot quickly if wet.
