Oh what a shame. How can people not like visiting gardens? It's not the same as actually asking them to do gardening.

It was quicker this morning. They do look good and original.

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all. Been for a wander round the garden, but forgot I was wearing bedroom slippers, now sodden with dew!

Going to tackle the awful Virginia creeper which is incredibly vigourous and grows all over the shrubs. It's even found it's way into the veg garden on the other side of the house. Previous owner planted it in late 70s. I hate it.

I bought one about 10 years ago, it bloomed the first year and only once since. I threw it away this spring. Sorry!

I would do as fidgetbones says. I would love to grow astilbes, but I don't have a wet shade place.

What is this and is it salvageable?

I have a spotted laurel, aucuba japonica, because I wanted something under the lime tree and I looked it up and the site said it would grow anywhere even under a lime tree! Mine isn't a hedge, it's just one.

Don't know if it's the site or my computer, but it took so long to download I gave up.

Good Evening FORKERS

Watched A - Z of Gardening and Hampton Court. Made blackcurrant cordial. Did weeding, pruning and dead heading this morning.

Jontydoggle, what sort of horses do you have? I have horses, 2 Lusitanos, one's retired, and I look after my daughter's 2. Her Anglo Arab is retired too. The flies are bad in this hot weather.

I have an old stone French farmhouse, there is so much more land in France and houses and land are cheaper.

What gorgeous colours lone gardener. I love looking at other people's gardens.

Daniel Haynes is the editor of the web site. I think someone already contacted him. I suppose one could start a thread addressed to him. The other way of getting replies is to click on "latest posts" and then "followed threads" and you will get the threads you have posted on.
