HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 31/10/2014 at 18:33

Have gardened today, cleared some of the bed at the bottom of the wall below the trellis. Full of weeds, and a horrible aster with tiny white flowers that go brown very quickly. Some one gave it to me at a plant swap and it was rampant. All gone (I hope). Dug up some of the Alchemilla Mollis, dug the compacted soil, added manure and compost, replanted the AM. Then planted pink tulips, forget-me-nots, pansies, a dark red heuchera and a cream and green Brunnera. Bit shaded because of apple trees. Have the next section to do, covered with lamium, ivy and grass.

How warm is it with you today?

As usual it's done my post upside down, Hypericum should be first! Forgot Nelly Moser.

 The Loropetalem usually flowers in spring. I'll bring it indoors for the winter.

Anyone else have some autumn flowers?

 Lobelia is still out and the pink Toscana strawberries are having another flush of flowers.

My garden is nearly over now, but I am planting spring bedding and will plant tulips soon. I have a few straggly dahlias and a few late roses. A Nelly Moser and a hypericum have decided to do a few late flowers as the weather is so mild.

Good for you DD. Hope to visit on the July date, but want to see the one in Hautefort as well as he's our local organiser. I haven't opted for one of the given dates. Opening mine on 17th May, together with a friend in the village. I'm hoping to go to the Malvern Spring Show on 10th May, which was their May date. But I hope we'll meet again before that.

Must go out and do some gardening. OH and I are visiting gardening friend's husband in hospital this afternoon. He's making good progress, mentioned him on the thread about sad things and supporting each other, forgotten it's name.

I've been posting here some time now and I regularly give advice to newcomers. So do Verdun, Dove, Nutcutlet, Frank and many others.

Digger, if that was the canna thread, the person who said advice was given on GW and "here we go again" has only posted 24 times in the last year or so. Hardly cliquey!I don't think she meant any harm as she put a smiley after her remark. That thread was started 2 years ago. I think most people here are friendly and like gardening, whether expert or not.
