GOOD MORNING ALL FORKERS ........................ Yes ive put my clock forward !
well i was quite busy yesterday with plant deliveries, so my kitchen area was turned into a temporary makeshift greenhouse.
Good friend of mine in Scotland sent me some Border Raider fuchsias so it turned out to be a busy day, did not get chance to go and have a look round GC but shall be doing that today ooopps think they are shut today ? will have to be tomorrow
So have a nice Easter Sunday forkers whatever you may be doing.
Happy Easter folks! Nice and cold here, my clematis shoots were hammered, but the tulips are keeping the faith! Seeds to plant, not a cloud in the sky at the min, so should be a nice morning to look forward too.
Good morning all..
Lets hope for a good day, I can hear the birds really singing this morning.
Morning Verdun, hoping we get a little bit of sun ?
would be nice verdun just a couple of hours weather forecasters have said tomorrow supposed to be best day hmmm, we'll see, im starting to suffer from - gardenatosis (not an actual word)
Morning, all. Have a wonderful Easter day! Sun shining here, too.
Cold here but not as bad as predicted I think. Will be lovely later. More seed sowing for me and perhaps fence painting Are all garden centres in England shut on Sundays? We're so used to 7 day opening up here! I'd go to good nursery but I'll just be tempted and I've an extension to save for..My clematis seem to have survived the cold Stay away from the eggs

FG, shops, Gcs etc which are over a certain size have to close on Easter Sunday, the only day in the year of which this is the case.
Morning everyone. Lovely & sunny here again this morning but there's a hell uv a frost! My fatsia always lets me know how cold it is out there. He doesn't like the cold too much and sulks when it's rather chilly and this morning...boy is he sulking!!!!
Bit gutted yesterday to find by clematis has succumed to the cold I think. I pruned it a few weekes ago and it was sprouting new shoots beautifully. Now it's just all wilted Ah well I'll leave it alone and see what happens once the weather warms up.
Got the outlaws coming for dinner today. Not a pleasant experience I can tell you but these things have to be done
Enjoy your day everyone and Happy Easter
Morning tatty, your clematis will come back
Morning all from a chilly Norfolk - we woke to another sprinkling of the white stuff all over the place - just as well I'm still coughing and sneezing - wouldn't be well enough to go out into the gatden if the weather was good enough. Shall stay indoors and cook roast lamb
Ahh Dove hopefully you've had the worse and will be better next week ?
Dove - think of all the money you're saving not buying plants! Or are you spending it on cough bottle/linctus/throat sweets/paracetamol.....
Tattiana my rescued clematis is looking a bit frozen this morning but new shoots look ok. I think you were really unlucky with the timing of the weather. We had a lovely couple of weeks recently too and if I'd had lots of pruning to do I'd probably be the same as you. Fortunately for me there's s** all in this garden at the moment. I hope your's comes away in the next week or two as it's a lovely variety.
This week I am mostly eating Stockley's Winter Nips
