HELLO FORKERS! part two

Posted: 13/02/2016 at 21:05

Managed to walk round the garden today. It is a mess. My toe has stopped me from doing the jobs needed. Too dratted painful to stand up for long and the ground is too wet to go out in my slippers which are the only non-painful footwear.

Still it has given me time to proof read my books. Fabulous birthday present from eldest son. He has arranged for some of my stories to be printed. Chuffed is the word.

Feed with Tomato fertiliser. Nip off the individual spent flowers.

What/Where have all my snowdrops gone?

The flowers on ours are nibbled by snails, sometimes even before they emerge from the ground too.

Sorry but Snowdrops are poisonous to rabbits and mice so I guess to squirrels too.

This is the verge outside the garden.


And yes there are hederifolium in there too. Cutting the grass does not seem to damage them though. Weed and Feed would.

I dig them up to sell them. The garden is stuffed to bursting with them, even got them as lawn weeds.

I knows my onions. After all I collect the things. And this is definitely a grass and it has bulbous bases and it smells of onions and its common name is Onion couch!

Well it came as Arrhenatum variegatum and for a while that is what it was, then it went green and spread everywhere and I mean everywhere and it is a devil to remove and the bulbs stink f onions too. And the last thing one can say about anywhere in our garden is 'hot'.

And be very careful about planting Arrhenatherum bulbosum, even the variegated one. It tends to revert and spreads everywhere and is as difficult to control as couch.
