Pruning advice

Posted: Today at 21:13

Cut out the wood that has flowered. It will be brown and woody. Leave the new green whippy shoots which will flower next year. See if you can see the shape you want and work towards that too. If you don't cut some back each year it may flower less and get big and woody and a bit of a tangle too.

My neighbour tells me he has heard some wildlife type noises in my garage. Plan to give it a good spring, or should that be autumn,-clean later in the year so who knows what we might find. I have someone to help me, so between us we might be brave enough .

Had 4 hour shift on garden, potting uo self sown seedlings, tidying, watering, chatting to my neighbour and helping him with the tractor mower we use on the paddock. Came in, showered, and promptly slept soundly for an hour and a half .

Good morning everyone.... in garden for an early session before it gets impossibly hot. Think I will concentrate on rescuing all those little plants that have taken up residence in my gravel paths and drive. lots of new agapanthus, lavender and lithrium ( I think?). I will let you know what I find.  Will take the rest of the irises I lifted to the Shop, where we sell them, 5 for £2.  Glads. still selling like hotcakes.

Also watering in feed on lawn. Not ideal in this heat but necessary. 

Have a good one everyone

I don't disagree either, but I did get a glimpse of a red rag.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
