What a scorcher today 

In full action in the garden when a friend turned up.  The same who always comes when you're busy and talks and talks and talks and......

Blueberry bush lost all its leaves

Regular pruning is important if only to keep shoots compact and fruit inclined 

Ideas for all year round shrubs

Choisya will be nice there.  Evergreen, bay scented glossy  tactile leaves.  Orange/vanilla scented flowers in spring and early summer with an aroma to waft beautifully

Got it.  Alison Blackman 

phormiums

For me Phormiums are adaptable.  Cream delight is a vsriety I think will do well there. Worth trying.  No, wouldnt put it in compost bag.  Best to use its contents in the soil.  I grow a variety ....or the life of me I can't remember the name but it's not common.....with very sharp dark green and yellow leaves in quite a bit of shade.  The name  will come to me though

Verdict....your new plants this year

Interesting David. Those  dwarf gaillardias are exactly what I have been looking at. Worth a try I think.  Only reservation remaining is that they look too,much like annuals !

Fidget, been there.  Exactly.  Hospital decided to send my mum home before she could walk earlier in the year.  Good luck 

Hope you recover quickly Fairy 

Another beautiful day

Hmmmm, doesn't sound too good Victoria?

Fairy, I too have couple of Tiarellas that simply want to keep flowerimg.  I'm tempted to divide soon to make a front of the border group for next.  What's the betting they won't flower all summer next year then?

Durban is stunning for me Fairy.  It doesn't sound like Durban to me.  May post a pic of it if time permits
