Clare de Lune is a beauty.  Had it with salvia guanajuato and they looked superb together all summer.

by chance watched Michael Buble last night and found myself impressed by the guy.  Seems genuine and modest and I got to like him


anyway, today the news has it that his young son was diagnosed with cancer.  


no child should suffer cancer.....I have personally been involved in the devastation it causes.  The child becomes an adult overnight whether he or she survives or not


ok, naive of me, but If the money poured into warfare and obscene salaries was ploughed into cancer research we might now be looking at a cure for it

Bob, not a good idea to plant daffs in same spot as your shrubs.....they will spoil the beauty of each other by being congested


can you create new planting spots for your bulbs?  pull back she gravel, cut the membrane then plant ....I would use some of your gravel to place bulbs on before planting them.  Given their own space the daffs will increase and look good.....difficult to dig up bulbs later if intermingled with shrubs

Dug up a large Clare de Lune dahlia......it has to make way for new planting.  Lovely dahlia though folks 


difficult to pull apart/separate tubers so spade down the middle to enable 3 nice clumps. one planted, one potted and one will be give away.  


nice weather in the afternoon for gardening.

I read the Daily Mail Hosta.....others too incl some a little more highbrow.  I am neither a cretin nor an idiot. 


I enjoy the Mail, see no hate content or anything sinister.  every newspaper has good and bad just as the BBC has in its news bulletins and political programmes.  Compared to the Daily Mirror, for example, the Mail is a pretty decent newspaper.  Of course, the Daily Mail is not a Hitler loving publication and it is more than a little offensive to say so.  Very insulting to those of us who read it.  seems the in thing now to attack the Daily Mail.....when I have challenged some of these guys as to why the reasons dry up? 


Simple thing.....don't read the Mail then its content cannot offend...!! 


I am not defending the Daily Mail as such more the readership 


I Always respected your views on the forum Hostafan.....until today!
