I am growing cucumbers for the first time so here is a question for the experts, should I keep them indoors (no greenhouse!) and do they need to be staked and how big will they grow, will they need a very big pot. 

I was thinking of keeping maybe two plants indoors and planting the rest outside in my raised veg beds.

At last I got my Wedding Cake Tree in Coolaught Gardens, it is small one (like my budget) but I am very pleased with it.  I also bought a Viburnum Plicatum 'Popcorn' & Viburnum Plicatum 'Mariesii'  I put photos in May album, I am chuffed with them and hope they withstand all the winds we have been having.

Oh Daisy!

Oh Daisy!

My hubby did Verdone the lawn three weeks ago - aren't these beautiful?

The weeds have really shot up in the last few days - heartbreaking when I had all my beds weeded 10 days ago!  I can see why some gardeners give in!  But not me!
