Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 17:04

That is why some of us find it a bit confusing. Sometimes you want to answer someone on the morning thread, but you go out for the day and then it's the evening thread where your answer doesn't make sense. But when I suggested just making it one the people looking at it then wanted it left how it is.

Really pretty, Bev. I bought one once that should have had a purple middle like that, think it was called "Florida", but it turned out white all over.

Thanks, Verdun and Matty, for the Jeyes fluid answers. Sterilising the soil in the GH would be good as I plant the tomatoes in it every year. I do change some of it and add compost and manure though. I'm a bit lazy about washing flowerpots and I use hundreds for the baby annuals. I could also clean the horse trailer.

Oh bother, it wasn't cheap. Wonder what I'll use it for then.

I did a makeover on my daughter's very narrow 2 1/2m wide garden a few years ago. It's grown a lot more now with bushier plants and roses on the arch.

 My daughter's garden is very shady especially on the left. I removed all the grass and weeds, dug it, added compost and organic fertiliser and re-sowed the grass. I made a zig-zag path to make it wider - but your daughter's garden is wider. You don't state the aspect or type of soil, which would be good to know when planning.

Just seen what Bob the Gardener said about Jeyes Fluid. They don't sell it in France and I have just bought some here. Does it upset polycarbonate greenhouses? That's is what I bought it for - to clean my pc greenhouse.

Morning all. I rather like lysimachia punctata (yellow) as it reminds me of my childhood. Also the deer don't eat it. I love rosebay willowherb, but not in the garden. A few years ago we went up a mountain in the alps on a little train and the countryside was pink with it. It looked so pretty.

I love Pashley Manor, Merriments and Nymans too. Been to Pashley and Merriments several times as my mother used to live in Battle. She's no longer with us now. May go to Pashley if we have time. OH has never been.

I've found that Morning Glory does like a feed, but they also like warmth.
