Hydrangea colour issue

Lyn, what I mean is get the best variety for your soil....viz., if you have alkaline soil go,for a good named red variety.  If you have acid soil go for a good named blue variety.

Busy morn.

Winter,  well are as canny as me!  Got a cheesecake yesterday for £1 50 less because wrong price listed.  Store had to honour the price.

new agastaches were here on the doorstep at lunch time.    Potted on ...into 3 litres....and watered.

i'm so tempted to post a pocture of my plants not planted yet.  They look good too. ....agastaches, dahlias, echinaceas, aeoniums, even some,shrubs.  Must resist planting most of them this summer though as garden is pretty much as I want it for now.  Have designs for them in fhe autumn. 

Sun now and very warm/humid 

When & how do blackcurrents need to be pruned

Sanjy, white currants for me are a big no.  Fairly tasteless so grubbed them out.

not quite sure what you mean re old fruited canes.  If you mean to propagate then I would take the new growth now and pot those up.
