Looks like October

Standard Lavender - Thanks John

Standard Lavender - Thanks John

Have been waiting 2 days now for a bit of sunshine to take a photo of my new Standard Lavender that my brother brought me at the weekend. It was a truly horrible day yesterday and not much better today. The only time the sun came out today, I was at work. Sitting here at the computer looking out - It looks more like October than May. The wind is so bad at the moment , I am wondering if I should take the roof off the gazebo. My washing line is already down. Lifted the two cement blocks right out of the ground. Crazy. Everything is growing like mad. All we need now is a bit of sunshine and a bit less wind.

Lavender looks superb. Would love one. Rachel tells me you're growing kiwis. I just got one. Should I plant it in the greenhouse?

Mine is a Kiwi Issai. I planted mine outside. Just did what I was told on the Label. Have never tried anything like this before. Live and learn !!!
