HELLO FORKERS!

I suppose it's Windows 8 Dove. When OH got his new one he had to change from Windows 7 to 8 and he found it very confusing at first.

Morning all. Our guests had breakfast outside in the sun, but it was only 13° in the shade, too cold for me! But should be 25° later.

Autumn starts around the 21st September, the equinox. So most of September is still summer.

Should I use rock salt to kill weeds

I would rather use glyphosate than salt.

Unhappy with new fence - doesn't match old

Wood changes colour with age. Different batches of wood can be different colours. Also it looks as though the dark wood has been stained, which is a wise thing to do anyway to help preserve the wood. It wouldn't be hard to stain the new wood a darker colour.

Not selfish. My mother was great about it. After her fall and her hip replacement she asked to go in a home and she had already put herself on the waiting list of the home in her town. They looked after her until she died.

Good luck in your new home and garden, Sweet Pea and may it be much better than the last one, with a lovely landlord.

Gaillardias ......who grows 'em?

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 10:02

I've grown them, but they often don't survive the winter. They are much shorter than heleniums and the flowering period is a lot longer. My heleniums are doing well but this year I only have one gaillardia left from the 12 I bought as small plants 3 years ago.
