HELLO FORKERS! part two

Won't be here tomorrow either, on Granny duty. Daughter and her OH are going to the bank to sign about the loan then to the notaire to sign the first contract for the lovely house they made the offer for.

Morning all. Going to a meeting in Bergerac this morning. See you later.

fuchsia Lena

Lena is a hardy Fuschia in a sheltered position. But I wouldn't plant out new baby plants until the frosts are finished.

Anyone grow Agapanthus in border

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 23:27

I had Headbourne Hybrids in a border when I lived in Kent years ago, sheltered, close to the house. They looked wonderful. I planted a hardy Agapanthus in a border last year, hope it comes up this year.

Perhaps there's a gate in the wall!

I like curves too, but my bed in front of a wall is straight.

Lupins can look good on their own. The photo is Great Dixter in June 2013.

 

Any ideas what I can plant in this space - help!

If you decide you would like climbers on the wood at the back then you could easily put some rows of wires and train clematis along them. It would extend the flowering season if you had some early and later ones, but nothing too vigorous.

http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/  I've put this link, not for advertising but because it's full of information.

Sown more seeds today, things I've found in the past that take a little time to get going, Busy-Lizzies, Lobelia, Antirrhinums, Dahlias. Also some perennials, Penstemon, Dianthus.

Sowed some seeds this afternoon, in electric propagators.

I don't know that the French have the same tastes. I like doughy bread that you can cut in big slices and spread Marmite or Marmalade on. The French around here like baguettes with crust that rips their gums and are full of holes inside so you can't spread anything. But they aren't keen on Marmite or Marmalade.
