We are going to Hyde Hall in July. It's in Essex, KEF. One of the 4 RHS gardens. Did you like it Panda?

Has rained all day, cleaned kitchen and sitting room. Going to daughter's tomorrow.

What To Grow In a Big Box

Posted: 20/03/2015 at 17:00

That is much bigger than most planters, I have roses in ones about 50cms deep. I think it might manage a dwarf apple tree. My daughter has an olive tree in a planter about that size. You will have to feed and water it though.

The other tree that could work is Mirabelle de Nancy on a semi dwarf stock, will grow to about 8 foot. I had one in a pot for 2 years before I planted it. I could have just potted it on, it was in a much smaller pot than yours. It is self fertile. Don't forget apple trees need to be near other apple trees of the right sort for fertilisation. Ask the supplier.

I get a blue rectangle with OK written on it on the bottom right of the error message.

Matty, if you get an error message then click on OK bottom right and the message goes, then just wait for the picture.

We didn't seem to have an eclipse, it was cloudy and raining, I expected it to go dark but it was just gloomy to go with the weather.

GB, you're not late. I'm amazed at how early people get on here. French time is an hour later.

Morning all.

Supermarket this morning. Then HW. Raining. Going to daughter's for the weekend, leaving tomorrow morning.

Definitely shouldn't watch super vets, I cried with them.

Goodnight all

I haven't, but then in France the varieties are often different. I googled them though and there is quite a lot of info.

Your garden is so pretty now YvieStevie. What a difference you've made.

Lovely lunch out chez friends, poached pears with grilled goat cheese and walnuts, fillet mignon of pork wrapped in parma ham with Dauphinoise potatoes and green beans, then cheese, then a cakey sort of pud that involved chocolate and fruit. Coffee finally served after 5pm.

Just realised that I've got to write an article for a newsletter, so must stop looking on here and go and do it.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Verdun, that made me laugh.  I thought you were such an expert, made me feel better, sounds the sort of thing I might do. I will always called Dicentra, can't spell the new name.

Eclipse at 10.30 here in France, but drizzle is forecast. Think I'll either go to supermarket or do housework, scared of looking at it.
