Hello, Brumbull, haven't heard from you for ages. What have you been doing?

Seems to me it's not cheaper after all. I've never used it though.

I wonder if slugs have got my 2 year old Montana. It flowered well this spring, then we had dry summer and it was fine but  it collapsed in September and looks dead. It rained in September.

HELLO FORKERS!

Punkdoc, January is that lovely time of year when the snowdrops are starting to poke up and you are sitting in front of the fire (or if you haven't a fire then in a sleeping bag) on a comfy sofa, mug of hot chocolate (or glass of whisky!) at hand, looking at plant catalogues and planning what to plant and drawing plans for the veggie garden.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Only 2° here in Dordogne. The Busy-Lizzies say it's abit cold and they look a bit unhappy - just when they were flowering their socks off.

Got to take car into garage, boot lock is stuck, needs changing. It's an estate car and I need lots of potting compost for the winter pots and troughs. Planted 5 troughs so far with wallflowers (from my seeds), pansies and violas. My bellis daisies are all coming on and will need planting soon.

Pennies, the chat thread was in 2 places so now it's been changed to one, simpler. It's called "Hello Forkers".

Depends a bit on the bulbs though. Tulips should be planted later than daffodils. I don't plant them until November. Just planted a load of daffodils in the grass.

Is it time....unification of evening and morning FORKERS?

I suggested this a little while ago but met with opposition so dropped the subject. So, obviously I would prefer it. Have just been looking at it, lots of response already.

How lovely, lucky you, think of all the slugs you won't have!
