Horsetail : I am winning the battle

What a tremendous effort sir! Good luck keeping it at bay.

I've noticed some in a garden at the end of the road, about 200yrds from my front door. The current residents have no pride in their property and none of the neighbours between them and me can be described as keen gardeners. I don't know how it travels but I reckon it's only a matter of time

As a general rule, prune after flowering unless there is risk of frost. If you're really not sure then don't prune at all and the worst that could happen is a larger plant than you want

 I started with a single plant that was known as Mrs Perry, salmon pink flowers which have since multiplied and changed colour to include baby pink with thick stems and orangey red of a slender stature, seen here

Lovely pics everyone 

WilDb especially difficult for you to make a garden on borrowed land. Nice idea of yours

Walked to town this morning since I had some nervous energy to burn, needed L plates but Wilko's didn't do the right kind. Picked up some car wash stuff though and washed/waxed the car this afternoon in the scorching heat, but first I planted the last of my dark blue salvias in the sunny border to balance all the orangey/red colours 

Been relaxing for rest of the day but next door's kids have just come home and footballs and arguments begin

Morning all, dare I say the sun is already at 20 degrees  and I have no plans except to be in the garden 

Enjoy your day out Dove plus Wonky, hope the vets isn't traumatic for the pet Jo and best of luck to the youngest chicklette!
