Haven't been on here for a while but have had a look back and have to say all your pictures are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.   

amy.    My almost black Hollyhocks have gone to seed.   Do you want any of the seeds as you said you did previously.   PM me your address if you do and I will send them on.  

If anyone else wants any do the same.

Well done Chris.   I know how much work went into all that.   Very satisfying tho.   How about trying the Pink Fir Apple potato next year if you want to try a new one.  I would advise leaving them in longer than usual.  They are a lovely firm yellow waxy spud.

FG.  Was that the spawn you brought back in a flask last year  ? 

Enjoy your walk if you get out there. 

Im just off to iron my bib ready for Sunday night.   Must admit I am watching Victoria too.  I think it's good.  All those candles.  

Have a good weekend everyone.

LIRIO.    Yes you can get confused with a water infection.  A little bit of delirium too.   ( I'm like that most of the time even without an infection).  Drink lots and lots of fluids.  You will feel better soon.   As for all this swirly and excitable wind, either a kite or tablets should do the trick.

YVIE.   Step away form the chocolate buttons.   Maybe have just one and suck it to death.....slowly.  

What did you learn from your garden this year?

Posted: 11/09/2016 at 14:52

I have decided this year to make my small gardens more manageable as I'm knocking on a bit and have other things on my plate.

  No more hanging baskets or making beds bigger.  I'm getting rid of two small beds and putting turf down.   I have lots of pots at the back for variety and colour and could never get rid of my Lillies as they do it all by the selves.  Im definatley getting rid of the Summerhpuse as it's becoming a dumping ground and buying a new shed.  I have 5 trees which give structure to the garden and I'm keeping those.  

I have a small veg patch which is very productive but I'm only going to grow what we eat.  No more trying new stuff.   Still picking armfuls of R.beans, 5 neighbours had loads yesterday and I still picked another washing up bowl full this morning.   I am always going to grow my Toms outside as they have gone crazy this year. The most Iv ever had on each plant.    Two words for one, that's me.  In other words I'm cutting right back on the physical side of my gardens.  

About the white labels, they supply a little pencil with them don't they.     I wonder why  always found a pencil to be the best marker.   

Another mystery?

VILLAVERDE.     Nice to see you here.   I'm going to send you a PM of those Hellibores you kindly sent to me.   There are survivors from both batches.   

Not on the Forum much these days and couldn't go back further than page 10 to find you.  Pics coming in a mo.

I too love the new extended GW.  

Yes, Monty looks a little tired at times, but when you have had a stroke, as he has, it does make you more tired than usual.    He also has a lot going on in his personal life too.    The buying of a new property and all that goes with it can take its toll as anyone who has bought and sold will tell you. 

I like the easy going way of the programme and Montys gentle way of telling us things that we all ready know really, unless you are a beginner.   

Its a 'sit down with a cuppa and breathe' time in this all to busy world.
