Clear skies here in the midlands.  I thought it would be darker but my outside light came on as I went outside and that is triggered by light levels so light levels must have dipped.  You really need to post that picture Hostafan it's really good.  The guardian website has some posted nowhere near as good as yours.

Stand your ground girls and Don't let the B*****ds grind you down.  Charities really take advantage of their staff Clari, so you need to make sure you get adequate breaks.  Stay calm and make your case. I'm with you BM, revenge is a dish best served cold. Up the Workers.

Sunny and clear here so the eclipse should make an impact.

Plan to do some repotting and maybe dig out the root of that Escallonia if I feel up to it.

They reckon it only last about 6 months but I would have thought that meant if you had opened it.  I would think it would be OK, but I'm no expert.

There is a thread somewhere called The Good Guys that has loads of posts about good and bad suppliers, it might be worthwhile taking a look, there are some good recommendations on there and it's a good place to post any comments regarding bad suppliers.  If I can find it Ill bump it up.

Just had to get rid of mine, it's called Escallonia Leaf Spot.  Very difficult to get rid of apparently and tends to come back eventually even when cut hard back.

Parcel arrived with new plants.  Three Corydalis Sapphire, a Dicentra Alba and a Sanguinaria Canadensis Plena.  All going in the new bed with the Lilac Madame Lemoine and Hydrangea Limelight.

I do that too punkdoc, it makes deciding what goes where much easier and also helps me not to overplant or dig up bulbs.
