I was back to the terra incognita of horticulture yesterday afternoon.
I mowed the lawn in the back garden, then discovered from discarded labels that I have Rhododendron and Hardy Lily to go with the similarly identified Red Dragon in the front. The plant in the photo is to the left of the Red Dragon. Does anyone know what it is? I think that the bush on its left is lavender with yellow flowers. Again, any clues?
I cut back the overgrown rose bush because I had permission from http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profiles1204/pruning_overgrown_roses.asp.
Finally I gave up on the wormery and emptied its disgusting contents for digging in later. For all that it wouldn't drain through the tap there was a fair amount of liquid in it and I seem to have killed off all the worms somehow.
