Lisa,,don't divide it.  Let it grow on ...they don't really like being divided amyway but I do divide them.  

Plant it with as much goodness including mushroom compost as possible amd encourage it to thrive before dividing it a few years down the line.  A mulch of mushroom compost is a good idea

Like the plant associations Marion.   Agree about the smell of hyacinths but daff cheerfulness was wonderful as I worked around them today."


Newbie - should I start over ?

Agree it's best to see what crops do well this year and decide at the end of summer what changes you might like to make

Alan, it's so nice when customer service is good. Of course, we go back again to that company so it's win win all round.

See...everybody wants to come to Cornwall....(great white shark). 

It is a little wimdy here......basically,st Ives bay....but it must be 17 degrees at least.  Stinking assistance at a friend's this morning included burning rubbish. Love fires though but need a shower........

Next week should see a delivery of the latest agastaches plus other goodies.  Isn't it annoying there isn't a postal service over the weekend?

An ENVY thread....

Gardenjeannie..I is so shocked.  You swore at me.  And you were my favourite girl here too 

I guess my ENVY is for those who can grow great roses and Japanese acers.  I grow a couple of jap maples  but could not hope to grow those yellow and orange foliage varieties.

Also of those who have a stream at the bottom of their gardens.

Blue sky, lots of sunshine, lovely.....but, bit of a wind. ,however, it's supposed to be a "warm" wind.  Looks amd feels fantastic. 

Promised to look,over a friend's garden this morn.....but lots to do here.  Maybe I'll get some donuts cos I'll be hungry....well, long gap between brekkie amd lunch 

Have lovely weekend folks
