Your poems paint a very vivid picture fishy.  Can almost sense actually being there .............

Is it too much to ask fishy to post more during this anniversary year?

Great Punkdoc.  Think we have similar styles sometimes 

How do you separate these Daisies

Sillee me.   Too much haste.  Yes they do look like shastas.  (you all spotted my deliberate mistake ). So. Divide them.  

Thought they were white argyranthemums .....well,,wot do I know?  Just a simple cornishman 

Jetmorgan, Chelsea chop is when vigorous  potentially leggy,late summer plants are cut back to,produce sturdier called because this is associated with Chelsea show times.  Late or mid summer chop is for plants that flower all summer but wane a little now.  Cutting back now energises the plants to produce fresh foliage and buds to flower into autumn. Actually I do that to shastas too....just done .
