Hi all, very busy today, started in the garden at 7 this morn. Dug out another played out border , went to GC and came home with 6 rudbeckia and 3 totally tangerine geums. Have layed them out with the helianthemums I saved a while back from the border which is now a terrace, and I will add a pale blue scabious if I can find some. May have a look tomorrow. The bed contains a prunus serrula at one end too.

Off to pub for a meeting to discuss next year's hortsoc programme.

I've tried that... did you miss it?

Things have come to a bit of a standstill in Hampshire. We have had no serious rainfall in weeks and all is parched. Lots of rain to east and west of us, but missing here.

Off to '40s concert with a swing band soon. Part of a bygones event, held annually on old RAF base in the Forest.

Talkback: How to collect and sow foxglove seed

Posted: 02/08/2014 at 05:55

On any one flower spike there will be seed capsules which are immature at the top, others that have already escaped at the bottom, and ready-to-collect ones in between. Collect some capsules from the middle, place in a paper bag, shake and hey presto you have ten million seeds. They are minute so only need sprinkling where you want them to germinate, including your seed tray. No need to cover.

Good morning to you all as you fall out of your pit. hopefully a lovely day beckons.

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.
