Trouble with account

Have you tried logging in with your old account details - when it doesn't work close the tab and try again straight away, thats what I have to do each time but the 2nd or third attempt always seems to work!

Rain

Heavy showers for the last 24 hours, water pouring off the roof via the gutters all looked very exciting (if you needed rain!) However my ongoing garden project involves stripping off some turf to lay brick pavers and the soil is still dust dry, it hasn't gone in at all :(

Butia Capitata - dead, dying or alive?

Its hard to over water a Butia so if its in the ground I would give a soaking more often, and I am with Jim - Its probably sulking!

Hardenbergia violacea

They are an easy grow Di, anything above -1C will see them happy and they flower from the get go, I have to remove flowers from the cuttings. The only thing I find difficult about them is taking a good picture that shows them off properly! https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1466/23638154710_b47f94d572_c...

Ngs open gardens

I think there were a few members who opened for the NGS but several of them have struggled to get back into HTUK. Opening the garden is a great way of focusing the mind!

Ngs open gardens

Just finished our open weekend for the NGS, afraid I know a lot of the Cornish gardens but nothing further up country, I think these days the web site gives a pretty good idea what sort of garden it is

Adverts!

Interesting that there were ads there before, I never saw them. I tried to do a screen shot but cant see how to do it on the desk top, then discovered there is no edit button any more so had to delete my first attempt, I will try again tomorrow from the tablet
