Hi WaF, I've not been about lately due to lack of internet. Back now
How's it going with the photo uploading? If you're still struggling I can do an upload of something and write down each step and PM you.
My meadow had been a bit of a sad sight this year, too much rain early, too tall, too much wind, all fall over. Good yellow rattle though and lesser knapweed now. Also the first of what I believe is meadow vetchling. Not bad in a few places but overall a mess.
I won't need your email address to send a private message I'll click on your poppies and 'message me'.
I'll start with a pic
Right,, done that, oenothere rosea and annual quaking grass.
Await your PM
So that's what annual quaking grass looks like - I have lots of it in one of my flower beds, but sadly none anywhere near my meadow ! Maybe I should turn my borders into meadows and plant a few garden plants in the field that is pretending to be my meadow !!
collected my Cowslips green yesterday and sowed. I could only face 240 plugs, sounds a lot but won't go very far will do more tonight. Most were still green, a few and ripened so you'd need to get out pretty sharpish where you are to get green seed.
there should be a reply box under the message WaF.
Haven't you got a tool bar above the box you type in with smilies and spellcheck etc. It's always referred to as a tree. I thoughtit was a green wine glass for a long time, just a bit short in the stalk
There's instructions on another thread re picture posting. Done by Blackest who is approximately 1000 times more computer literate than me. Maybe more
Good idea, I wouldn't know where to look if mine disappeared
I found lots of wild carrots germinating in the bald bits of field today. Very pleasing. The bald bits are down to a mix of yellow rattle and mowing the tops off large ants nests.
I j hope you get the gremlins sorted, It's very frustrating when something only half works
I'm enjoying the wild carrots in my meadow this morning. They're all nodding approval at the rain.
Yes the rain was very good yesterday - we needed it badly, everything was
going brown! Have you checked out the wildflower pictures I've posted under
growingflowersforbees? Took a long time for me to figure out how to do it,
but now I've done it they will be no stopping me!
Hi WaF, I think it coms from south america anf it may be an annual. I's always there, growing in my drive and it over winters OK. I should think there are seeds. Want some?
PS WaF, I PMd you
Hi Nutcutlet - Yes please! I'd love some! Thanks for the PM - Just
about to read it!
