Verdun, if you still wanted Paris Daisy, I could send you some cuttings now, or a cut down plant, later on say october.
Oh didn't think my previous post registered!!!!!
Happy Birthday to little Fairy.
Cloudless sky and forecast very hot, then heavy rain tomorrow so I'm out to make the most of it.
Last night when I'd gone up to bed I couldn't sleep and so ended up doing a spreadsheet for my fuchsias.I can then see any I've lost and which need to come in during winter. Well it kept me happy for a while.
Have a great day all
That's half my lunchtime gone reading posts - stops me eating! Potty, how does that work - spreadsheets for fushias? Is it the IT equivalent of my drawing where they are on a piece of paper?
Hiya fidget, that's very nice of you but I now have plants growing away. That's the beauty of the forum......everyone is so kind.
Whatcha sending me then Verdi?
I'll keep you some cake...
Been out removing turf for the areas to be planted.
I'm sure it'll be lovely when it's finished....
have cleaned out, well tidied and swept GH. No still have tomatoes etc but was so much in it couldn't see anything and needed room to plant seeds. That's tomorrow.
Have also washed pots, and seed trays so now feel as if I am half way to autumn.
next job is to sort out and re-organise the side entry so wehave room to stor the logs I will have to order soon.
Yes folks - back of five on a Friday of a bank holiday weekend - the spammers doth return....
Anyone for cake instead?
Chocolate fudge icing, cream and choc ganache with bits of choc sprinkled on top....
Fat free of course
still in my hammock - haven't had a day this lazy since my spanish holiday
Good morning folks Thunder and lightening during the night (so my OH tells me ) and still raining now - that wet sort of rain that really soaks things - that'll help the lawns.
I had some little plug plants arrive yesterday - they're keeping damp in the shade out there now - hopefully it'll dry out later and I'll be able to put them into the modules I have waiting for them. I also have some Aquilegia White Swan to sow (present from a foodie friend).
The two fora I'm on are sort of crossing over - we've got cakes on here and my foodie friends are sending me seeds
Good morning Dove & all. Been catching up on latest posts and I think far too much cake on here
We've also had thunder, lightening and rain since 8pm yesterday. Still raining on and off. At least all plants will now have had a good watering.
I think I've been a bit heavy handed with the can, as I've killed my Delphinium Summer Nights, rotted at the base and just lifted from the pot. I could blame slugs but it was me Well it was nice whilst it lasted. I'll get a replacement next year.
Have a good day all, BFN.
Lol morning dove, always the way isn't it!! Drizzle here this morning but as I didn't water last night I don't mind so much!! Gotta pack for me and Lo going to my folks I. Yorkshire next week. Don't want to leave the garden cause if its warm I know my oh wont water ( he can't do it with an Xbox controller). well best I go feed the chickens.... Have a nice day all
Nothing there that you could try to strke a cutting from KEF? I know basal cuttings are traditional for delphiniums, but there's no rule that says you couldn't try rooting a sideshoot. Nothing to lose really
Tasmanian rellies visiting on Monday/Tuesday (the ones that were in the fire). We're lunching out with my son and daughter and their spouses (spice??? ) on the Monday, but wll be here for Monday supper and Tuesday breakfast/lunch. I'll have to make some cake .........
Morning. Not looking like a goodday weather wise. The wet ringsoutthe colour in th egarden quite nicely though. Lots of fallen apples, kids not picked them up for a while so that ca be one of their 'drag away from tv/computer jobs' - any orher ideas to entertain them, especially 15 year old ????
Good luck with that MrsG....
Dove that sounds like a nice Aquilegia. I found a site that sells some lovely shade loving plants on it that had a few white ones so I might be tempted over the dark, wet winter months ...
Bright here - we had the rain last night and getting dry now. Help coming today to move shed so I'll have to go and start emptying soon. Will be glad lot of turf to lift too. Rain started yesterday so didn't get as much done as I'd like. Cake duty interfered too. That was an enjoyable break - lots of chocolatey pots and bowls to lick- chef's perks!
Enjoy the day everyone
this is just a friendly warning about a scam
i recieved a letter yesterday from china informing me that my recently deceased BIL had invested large amounts of money in china and if i emailed i would be able to claim it as his executor. my name and address were correct but not BIL christian name
Oh little ann, aren't they little S****s? So sorry to hear about BIL. Thanks |I will keep an eye on mum as dad pasted away recently and this would worry her as he did do some daft things over his last few months, (dementia) so she could believe he'd do this .
Little Ann - it is shameful the lengths these people go to - with no thought to the distress they might cause, regardless of whether or not their "victim" falls for their lies.
predicted rain has come with avengeance, but the garden needs it (come to think of it, so does the house - it might actually get cleaned).
one of my expeditions yesterday took me past a GC, where I invested in two sidalcias - reddy pink ones. I need some more pink in one of my borders, and these should do the trick. Also very pleased to see all my roses getting ready for another show. And (stop press) I finally have a red tomato in the GH
enjoy your visitors Dove (spice made me lol). And good luck with the shed move FG - do we get some before/after pics??
Have fun at home Stacey, and Mrs G - I wish you luck with your mission!
Trying to stop e-mails about this thead as I look every day any way. No success so far
Have decided to write down the plans for autumn/winter in garden, digging, shifting, planting you know the sort of things - the ones that only a few are done because you found something else that needed dooing/not the time!
Rained overnight and some very picturesque clouds drifting past-white over grey - but it seems all you in the north and east will get the brunt of the 'weather'
Chick- do you want pix of us all swearing and crying when we can't get it in position!
Pic please of your first tomato
These scammers are vile. No conscience. At least the ones that do it on here will get no joy-everyone's too switched on. The kind that prey on the elderly in particular should be jailed for life.
