It's also in a most unpromising position alongside a garage brick wall. 

My garden is 15 years old now and quite a lot of shrubs have need heavy duty treatment this year. Some are too big for their space. Some have disease or die back. etc, etc. So it's time for a big chop.

The only one that has survived for me is deciduous. Last year I cut it back by 3/4's. Doing fine.

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.

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.
