my best plant in flower at the moment?  Its a time of richness right now so hard to choose....big  cannas in majestic flower, heleniums, dahlias, and wishes is lovely.....    Nothing is really going over as yet and miscanthus and panicum grasses are adding their flowers  too.  From a small tuber canna tropicanna black is huge.......8' tall at least.  Amazing shiny black foliage.  It will be moved to a more spacious spot after flowering and I'm expecting great things from it next year.  Can recommend it folks 

my best wishes to you too Pat.  Hope everything turns out well

Sounds like you have them in pots granma.....?

if newly bought and small put them in gh or coldframe.  You could plunge the pot in the ground and fleece the top during cold nights.  Make a sort of tent...short canes with pots or jars on top and drape fleece over and pin down.

Hmmm!  Plants ordered on ebay not arrived.  Not usually my thing, to order on ebay, but its twice now that plants havent arrived.  No great loss...plsnts cheap and small...and I will get money back but its such a waste of time 

nice here.......sunshine and high cloud....

I read that those giant slugs I posted about are now making the headlines.  my plants seem unaffected though.  Smoked kippers and bananas for old dog pinched a kipper.  Well he just stared at me, all sad-like, so what could I do?

hoping to get grass cut later
