I recently found a cardboard box in an outbuilding with about a dozen tortoiseshells....one flew off, but it was a mild day so hopefully it is OK somewhere else.

For anyone who hasn't been out yet it will be a great tonic when you do....have just filled bird feeders, rescued some irises in pots which were standing in water, and tidied up some broken glass.  

Working in shop this afternoon.

Summer flowering shrubs for shade

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 11:47

It's always a good idea to study what does well in neighbouring gardens with similar conditions. Most plants can put up with some shade, and are you limiting yourself to shrubs or are you going to grow herbaceous perennials (die back each winter and pop up again in spring).

Your local garden centres may have a section for shade lovers too, so you can do your research there. Have a look in their books section while you are there.It's always useful to have your own reference books.

Happy New year to all our readers. Just getting up after very late return from party in village. Great to be able to walk there and back. Great sing song after midnight. Last go at carols until next December.

Day of cooking now for my visitors tonight.

Hi, David K. Have you ever bought from "Chrysanthemums Direct"? They are the best probably.... great little plug plants to get you started.

My ambitions for this year.... open my garden in the village open gardens event...master plan already underway... and build a second terrace, next to the house to replace the pathetic excuse for a patio I currently have.

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.
