There are different sections for various themes but people will see your questions anywhere so I wouldn't worry where they end up

Hi Keen,

I've ordered quite a bit of stuff but most has been in the planning since last year so everything already has a space reserved.

Couple each of kniphofia, centaurea montana and phlox, also old faves such as geum, astrantia, aster and helenium

Not much to do today.

Deadheaded the weather damaged daffs. Normally it's the tulips that incurr the wrath. Perhaps the strange and ugly arrangements I concocted meant they had suffered enough  

Potted up the rest of the dahlias, jabbed some stakes in, tied in the summer rasps, cleaned the wild bird things and replen'd the sun seed.

Thought about scooping out some of the gunk that had washed into the pond and ordered some more trellis for the clems and to replace another that appears to be made of crackerbread.

Back to work tomorrow, yippee! Expecting a plant order this week so will hopefully have a jolly good planting weekend coming up

Beautiful Lyn love the mix of daffs and also the saxifrage swathe against the stone.

That's lovely davids10 Looks like a good strong plant.

I found the label for one today so hopefully I have the plant somewhere...

Been grim today, rained apart from a few hours early pm when I took myself off for a walk.

Did some impromptu outdoor tidying which came about as I didn't have enough labels for my dahlias. One thing led to another and I got the pot mountain stacked and the purchased plant labels picked up and bucketed (It's like having a file). Only got 5 dahlias potted up so far though. 

Forced myself out to rip out a rather magnificent clump of linaria. I like the stuff but it was sweating all over a clematis and an aster. 

Put up a new bird feeder pole, need a feeder to hang off it though. And that was about the size of today...

I just don't see there being a need in my garden. I've lost a few plants but I do have a lot of them.

I think it might upset some kind of balance and I'm too lazy to interfere with the wildlife tbh.
