In Response to Re: How does your garden grow?:
Don't know if I mentioned before but one of my hydrangea is a type that normally does not bloom in my area. I got it about 20 years ago and have had 1 flower on it in all that time. It blooms on old wood and the winters here kill off the old branches. Since I moved I have it in a bit of a sheltered spot and I surround it in the winter and cover it with leaves. Well..I have lots and lots of flowers this year. They are pink they should be blue but I have never amended the soul since I never got flowers so I will be amending the soil for next year and with luck a profusion of blue flowers.

My hydrangea is also blooming pink this year instead of blue. Been so busy lately that I haven't done a thing to it except water it. Pink is ok for now.
