Hi Gg, it will flower one day, which will help identification. Thalictrums throw up tall spikes of delicate pink flowers I'm my experience.

can i put these in my compost bin?

Anything that is a bit woody can be cut up small with pruners, it only takes a minute or two. This will hasten the rotting down process a bit, and in any case small bits don't really cause you any problem if they are slow rotters.

Back from concert. Gregory was wonderful. Same songbook but lots of variations.  Shorter , at 75 minutes than last time so shorter instrumental solos and more singing. Arena full of committed fans, so lots of singing along.

Courtney Pine was very disappointing. More reggae than jazz, in fact no jazz at all.

Other acts which impressed were James Torme, ( son of Mel) Christian McBride Trio, and Cecelia Stalin ( yes, Stalin) She is the only English one on this list altho' James Torme spent much of his childhood in Sussex. 

Brilliant day, all round though, good weather, no rain, good food offers.

no flowers on gladioli

We planted ours in a raised bed,on 11 March,  for cutting, and there are lots of healthy leaves and can feel the flower spikes starting to thicken. Now watering regularly and hopefully all will be well soon.

Good luck with your mum Verd., My mum has had a few TIAs and still has a pretty good quality of life at age 94.

Good morning all. kippers for breakfast , and off to concert soon. Gregory here we come, except he's not on until 7-30 tonight. Might catch some Courtney Pine in the meantime.  No tennis for me today,strangely did you know that Djocovic is taller than Fedrere? Strange fact for today.

West Dean gardens are very, very, good. Walled fruit, veg and cutting gardens. Lots of exotics in greenhouses, herbaceous borders, brill pergola, sunken garden , spring garden, wild flower meadows arboretum and a great cafe. Plenty for Hortisoc. to see next year. Popped into Weald and Downland museum to get details. Unfortunately the £10 entry would be a deterrent since we might only have 2 hours or so there. Plan "B" might be to stop off in Chichester on way home for Cathedral, late night shops, drinks etc.

Now wallowing in comfy hotel looking forward for dinner.

Have just rediscovered second hedgehog in garden, very distressed. It drank lots of water , but wouldn't eat my best cat food. Have now delivered him/her to rescue lady, so all should be well. Will check early next week and let you know. Fingers crossed.

SGL, I shall be staying overnight at Lower Beeding, South Lodge, which will be  treat and a half, and tomorrow we are at Glynde Place, near Lewes. I can't find my passport, so might have to keep to the B roads!!

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.
