Keen, there IS disagreement about growing agapanthus.   

I had a border full of them and, when "I knew better" used to feed and mulch them.  They were in good deep soil.  Flowered wonderfully.  So it is perplexing when advice to treat them mean is given. ,

currently I have a pot of agapanthus in flower.....well, one or two out and the rest about to.  They are well fed and watered....they had a mulch including pelleted chicken manure in early spring.

agapanthus occupy whole fields down here opposite St Michaels Mount and on the Mount itself.  

Garden advice needs to be listened to but not always followed 

Is talking aloud madness?

Nice one Busy

This is a thread that EVERYBODY could ignore but chooses  not to.  emotions are high on an emotive subject with added personal agendas

Is it time for Daniel to close it?

watched Paxman last night.  Question Time too.....nobody on the panel impressed

I try to be objective.

if we could control our borders I would not be too concerned either way and I really wamted Cameron to  get those powers in his "negotiations" .  Controlling our borders just means numbers.  

whatever the outcome of the referendum big changes will take place.  To me it is a worry

Shrinking violet...I can only empathise.  HF is devastating and treatment is difficult if not impossible. never had it either but I think growing perennials is the answer.

don't does seem your wisteria has "grown out" of it

you can still have a beautiful garden....a different one, maybe a more colourful one, maybe with grasses.

Seacrows......gorse!   Behind me leading to the beach gorse grows everywhere.  Agree it always seems to be in flower and that wonderful almond/coconut scent too 

PP there are double flowered gorse varieties too but we can never grow it as well as ma nature does .   Careful though re salvias.  There are masses of them and all addictive....check out salvia guanjuato
