MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 18/06/2013 at 22:53

We had some lovely carrot cake, moist and spicy, at Borde Hill yesterday.

Great Dixter was wonderful, loads of colour and lots of poppies. Sunken garden full of those ladybird poppies with black spots on them. There were so many plants for sle and so many I hadn't heard of that I got totally confused and didn't buy any of them! Oh was shocked! They even had 2 of the clematis I wanted but they were so big I don't know how we'd have put the cover over the boot to hide them from customs.

Took lots of photos, including lupins for Matty!

Hello all. It's a bit late, but it will soon be morning!

KEF said  "Do we all think that BusyLizzie will have filled her car with plants already ? She must have been here a couple of hours"  - so far I have bought one plant, geranium psilostemon, and we have been to Borde Hill gardens near Haywards Heath. Great Dixter tomorrow.

Glad WWs open day went well.

Tired, going to bed, goodnight all.

I bought a really cheap wooden shelving unit on offer in a DIY place and made staging out of it and treated it.

Skyrunner, if you have a laptop with photos on it you upload the photo here then you write the text under it on your message. The one on Leadfarmer's post is because he's used the Quote facility.

Morning all.

Off to England today, Staying with son mid-France tonight. Will see my beautiful little granddaughter.

I hope no-one with small children was upset by this badly behaved parent discussion. It was directed at a small minority. Most children are lovely and most of us have children and grandchildren. I had 4 children and I have 6 grandchildren, with hope of more to come. I used reins in town as I felt their safety was the most important thing, but only until they learnt that roads were dangerous.

That looks very pretty. Just need to keep it weeded. Some gardeners cover alpine gardens with fine gravel which keeps weeds down, moisture in and keeps the necks of the plants dry so they don't rot in wet weather.

Thank you Nicky, I love seeing people's gardens. Obvious from yours that you are a young mum! Although I looked at you profile. From your posts you haven't been there long so good luck with it. It looks a good size. I hope you managed to get everything identified.
