HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 10/03/2015 at 19:40

Glad Pa is OK Dove. Your parents sound so sweet and loving.

Wintersong, your pergola is fabulous, I want one.

I've been outside most of the day, starting with hanging up the washing. Lots of seedlings in the GH. It was 18° in the shade outside.

I hope you have lots of lovely cuddles at the weekend, Matty.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 10/03/2015 at 19:27

Pruned and weeded a shrub bed which has lavenders, caryopteris, and a big sambucus Black Lace. Sowed more seeds, flowers and herbs. Lots of seeds germinating now in the GH.

Montbretia eradication

I think the crocosmia flowers are on top and so are more showy and montbretia flowers are under the stem.

Montbretia eradication

Thank you Verdun, we get very hard frosts here, Dordogne is usually colder than England in winter, so that must be it. I do water in summer.

Montbretia eradication

I've tried ordinary Montbretia and Crocosmias, Lucifer, Emily McKenzie and a couple of others and they all died. Verdun, please, would you have any idea why? I gave my son some of the Lucifer (someone gave me lots) and it grew beautifully in his garden. Is it too hot and dry in Dordogne?

Indoor Jasmine

Posted: 10/03/2015 at 12:23

AnnieAnnie, is that the indoor Jasmine polyanthum, which flowers in late winter or is it the outdoor one Jasmine officinale, which flowers in the summer? Polyanthum is half hardy, officinale is hardy, but prefers some shelter.

That sounds good news Marion. I hope you get the grant. Good luck.

I hope you are feeling better and able to drink and rest.

Morning all. Foggy again, but usually means sunny later. Pruning, pruning and pruning! How did that buddleia get so huge when I cut it to knee height last year?? etc.
