Tomatoes for hanging baskets?

Posted: 09/02/2015 at 11:49

Tumbling Tom is a hanging basket classic.

Spinach and Lettuce

I was going to say perpetual spinach, but Philippa was there first!

Plant ID please

I'm pretty sure they are currants, but I couldn't say at this stage whether red, black or white.

Morning all.

Have a good day in Southwold, Dove. Hope Ma and Pa are well.

-3°, but sunny.

Thank you Topbird. He's perked up this morning, eaten chicken and rice and been for a short walk. Looks more cheerful. Perhaps the cortisone is kicking in. Vet again tomorrow afternoon. So many of us have dogs, I've had 6 border collies since 1978, it's something many of us go through, but miserable at the time. Dogs are such good friends. Amazing how they care for us so much.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Have done nothing since mid January, too cold, ground frozen half the time, icy wind the last few days, even a sprinkle of snow here in Dordogne. But sun is out today.

Thank you Fishy, but there's no need to apologise.

Is it a sunny or a shady wall?

Plant ID's please

I think Liri has got them all right, except the phlox could be phlox subulata, more common than phlox douglasii.

When I saw Charlie on the branch, then under the branch for a moment I thought he'd fallen in!

I really like fruit cake as well as carrot cake

Watched too much TV today, finishing with Mr. Selfridge, but I did do ironing while I watched, including two big duvet covers.
