Lyn, Cornwall? 

No it's not predictive text.  I have big fingers and impatience a combination that omits spaces, puts in commas, etc.

Hmmmm heatwave looks like high temps but with rain.  Who arranged that?  

Lesley good luck with the dentist 

Bit out of the loop here too re broadband but Cornwall has been targeted for priority coverage of fiber.  

Dry for now but heavy rain later.  So warm though that plants think its summer

Choisya will be fine ESP with annual pruning ....perfect if reasonably sunny.

If you have acid soil how about a dwarf azalea or rhododendron?

Been lovely day.  Started to cut down some tall perennials now so I guess it won't be too lomg before I do,the lot 

Haggled a deal for fiber optic broadband ........ended up paying not a penny more than I am  now for my standard broadband.

Of course, they do not flower yet.  December/Feb is  their time 

Wouldnt move so often though Irene  You  said the larger plant has lots of foliage and no buds ......maybe too much feeding.  


Need help identifying (and saving) this small plant

And they root easily.  Consider training them as cordons too.  Oblique cordons or,double cordons produce excellent large fruit with easy access.  I did this in my early days and had 20 or more cordons on wires on a wall.

I think a late  summer application is enough though.  Spring is prob unnecessary
