HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks Dove, it's worse than hosting a dinner party!

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Next week I will be in England with a group of French friends (and OH).They want to see Canterbury, London and Oxford and asked me to arrange it. It has been complicated as there will be 10 of us with 2 hire cars and Ryanair.

It's really not a convenient time to leave the garden and the GH, full of babies, hope the housesitter manages to keep it all watered. It had to be over the Easter holidays because a couple are teachers and there are the 2 daughters of one couple. Should be fun though. 

I have masses to do before we go so this may be my last post for a bit.

No, Chicky. The deer don't touch them.

Sunseeker, there is a huge choice of shrubs, but some like it sunny, others shady, some like acid soil, some alkali etc. See what you like the look of in a book or Google or local garden centre and look it up to see if it suits your garden.

Hello, been staying with my daughter. It was a few years ago I planted mine so can't remember, but I would do what KEF says.

Morning all. Been staying with daughter in north east France. Went swimming, saw Rio 2 (cartoon about blue parrots in the Amazon) at the cinema which the grandchildren loved (3 and 5yrs) and went to a beautiful bluebell wood.

 

Brambles and weeds

Little Bird, that thread was in 2012, Geoff hasn't been here for ages.

Your links were more about farming and use of pestcides and herbicides over large areas. Careful use of glyphosate in a private garden, away from food crops and aquatic life, such as spot treating a bramble, is not in the same league. But I am anti pesticides which are far more dangerous and destroy the natural balance of nature.

Evening all. Early tomorrow going to see daughter in north of France, nearly 7 hours journey by train. So have a good weekend, see you on Tuesday.
