I have a chrysanthemum that should be a Gompie White but it has somehow managed to turn out like this.


leaf spot on escallonia

Posted: 18/09/2015 at 19:31

I gave in last year, after  a couple of years where my mature escallonia gave a poor performance despite spraying, bit the bullet and removed it.  I did a fair bit of research and all the experts seemed to be saying that I was fighting a losing battle.  Hope yours stays clear Noel.

Oh don't Jo it's enough to make me throw up

Garden Waste

Posted: 18/09/2015 at 19:21

Ours is included in council tax and is collected fortnightly, the only problem is they stop collections in october and don't start again until end of March.  OK for grass cuttings but useless when it comes to clearing and cutting back.

Just popped on to say hi, have been cuddling grandaughter today so no gardening done.  The weather is looking good for the weekend so perhaps I'll be able to get some bulbs in and some winter bedding planted. 

I've read back but memory is rubbish tonight only things I can remember relate to

Marmite - can't stand it, it's as bad as porridge.

Pat, hope you manage to put your fears to the back of your mind and enjoy the weekend.

Glad you and your visitors had a good day Hosta.

Off for a quick look round.

Hanging baskets

Posted: 17/09/2015 at 21:42

I have three hanging baskets which are on the fence posts on the shady side of the garden.  They add a lot of colour to what is a difficult bit of the garden.  I quite enjoy deadheading as I find it theraputic and watering once a day isn't any sort of hardship.  I do agree though that if neglected they do look awful.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

OK David but not enough perfume for me.  Also I was away for 3 weeks from the end of July and to be honest my housesitter didn't do a very good job on the watering and picking front.  Painted Lady looks right up my street.

I know you were joking Verdun, but the truth is it really does taste cheap.    Can we stop talking about it now because its making me feel
