At Malvern I bought some Helianthus Lemon Queen, with single flowers. Alongside there were some double flowered tall yellow plants with similar leaves also labelled " Lemon Queen" I bought these too. The clueless staff on the stand tried to persuade me these 2 were one and the same!!

A bit of research And I think I have "Loddon Gold".... close....

I also found a most wonderful Tulip.... Havran... google and have a look....

dahlia's what now for my cuttings.

If they have developed tuberous root they should overwinter ok. When the first frost kills off the foliage, separate out the tuber from the soil and wrap in newspaper, store in a frost free but cool environment and wait. Next spring when they start to shoot, pot up and plant out after danger of frost has passed. bingo...

Hi, no worries, travelled up today, will go to show tomorrow.Will possibly go to Picton Gardens/nursery on Sunday which is on my bucket list. 

Macmillan coffee morning well supported. Now have dish pan hands, but got to eat compensatory cake Cheese scones particularly good.

Great work in the Station Gg  amazing progress in just one season.

Verd, 24 hour professional care and oversight plus nice environment and good food is to be valued, without counting all the advantages for you and yours knowing that Mum is in good hands. Could come to any of us in due course. Hope someone cares for me with as much love and thoughtfulness.

New garden new start... Fingers crossed

Yes, in ericaceous potting compost. Water only or mostly with rainwater. Keep moist and water especially in late summer /autumn when flower buds being formed. Large square pot. Round ones blow over more easily in wind.

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.
