HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 17:12

It's a lovely day now, but I'm not. Done nothing, but as I'm feeling too pathetic to do anything I have found 2 new mail order French nurseries and I've spent too much money ordering plants I have no room for. I shall blame Verdun, he keeps talking about plants, such as Agastache Black Adder and Anemone Wild Swan that I can't find in the local GCs. So I have 19 plants of different varieties arriving in 3 days! They will have to be potted on and live in a cold frame until next year.

I saw Chicky mentioned Marchants Nursery in East Sussex. We went in June. Their garden was beautiful and they had some lovely plants for sale. I forgot to put pics in the thread for that, so have just done it. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/gardens-we-have-visited-2014/325348-7.html

We visited a lovely garden, not far from Eastbourne, back in June. I think I forgot to mention it. It's attached to a nursery called Marchants Hardy Plants. Chicky has just mentioned it in the Hello Forkers thread.

Thanks Beaus Mum, but I better not enlarge on the subject!

My photos are always back to front nowadays. Pooh was first with it's name over it then Rozanne with it's name over it. Have a third, Begonia "Dragon's Wing".

Fidgetbones, my OH is the opposite! He's nervous of mowing anything that could be a plant so he often doesn't mow close enough to the borders and the edges get tatty with long grass and overflowing geraniums that could do with a trim.

Freezing corn on the cob.

I put it in boiling water for 2 minutes, then cool it, dry it, freeze in plastic bags.

Morning all.

My email notifications aren't working this morning.

Forecast says sun and 27° for this afternoon, but now it's 16° and cloudy. I have to type up minutes from a meeting last week.

Tummy is a bit not right this morning, hope I haven't caught son's tummy bug. His doc said it's doing the rounds at the moment.

Clearing a garden

KT53, I think that's a bit strong. Some people were a bit shocked, but no one was really unpleasant. I don't think we quite understood about the sort of garden Mr. Toast needs for his family and some of us are retired and think of prettiness which isn't practical for children. Mr. Toast is making a new garden, not covering it all in concrete!

I was one who was a bit worried at first, then I changed my mind and said "I'm afraid I wasn't very encouraging at the beginning because it sounded as though you were destroying a garden, but I must congratulate you on what you have done. You are creating a new garden suitable for your family's needs and you've worked very hard."
