Don't forget September and October are Late Summer , not A***** which doesn't start until 1st November. Cake will be denied all who ignore this rule.

By the way it's raining here so will cook up a bunch of soup to keep out the cold and damp!!

Returned home to inspect what my "man" had managed to do on Friday. Now seem to have acres of space to plant up with new schemes; really exciting. Can now see the wood for the trees. As a friend said recently my garden is coming back to life again.

Have  a good week everyone.

Gardens we Have Visited 2014

Hi, Lou and Art. I have seen the white garden looking both stunning ( 1st time I think) and disappointing. I subsequently planted a white border but found all white can look a little flat. It needs the right structure and foliage to work. And now I add some purple elements to lift it. No more all white for me.

Gaillardias ......who grows 'em?

A short variety, can't think of the name, would look good in front of taller heleniums, Verd.

I grow gaillardias and coreopsis together. I find the Gs don't often survive the winter altho the Cs always do. i remember others saying they lost theirs in winter too, on an earlier discussion. I buy them as they are good but only expect 1 season.

When do I divide Agapanthus

Leave well alone. 4 years is not long.They will tell you when to split them. Take some seed instead or look for seedlings coming up nearby. Mine seed into gravel paths and are easy to rescue. i have a new crop annually.

Edging my lawn - what to do with the cuts?!

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 21:11

Compost heap, preferably at the bottom, otherwise grass will keep growing which would be a nuisance if spread over beds. Whatever you do you must kill the grass. The resulting soil/compost is great.

Hi Clari, do I remember someone on TV making pots out of newspaper using a pot as a mould wrapping the paper around the outside. Paper may have been damp to help moulding. Toilet roll inners work too and both can be planted out entire. Your volunteers could set up a work shop to produce them. Shame I don't live near. I have thousands collected over the years.

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.
