I have a nice new terrace and furniture, made from recycled scaffolding planks ( made in Scotland), and sitting there with test match on radio and cup of tea is too tempting!!

Lots happening in the garden too, almost too much to list. Sorry for being so tardy.

Sorry to have been away so long, and best wishes to all my old friends.... long standing that is , not aged being only 27 ish.

Iris rhyzomes should be planted on top of the surface, anchored by their roots. The rhyzome needs to be baked by the summer sun to get the best flowering next season.

If you do dig any roots up, burn or bin, don't compost.
