HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Posted: 07/03/2016 at 18:54

Have been sorting photos to get some enlargements developed of the grandchildren to frame. Taken ages.

Gardening was out, heavy showers, cold.

Made a loaf of bread and lasagne is in the oven.

Washing out, Chrissy? Good heavens! It never dries at all outside here in winter.

Good morning Marion. Only 1° here too. I wonder if it will warm up this afternoon so I can get on with the pruning.

Morning all.

I have no plans for this grey and gloomy looking day.

How to stop puppy from eating everything

Posted: 07/03/2016 at 09:27

Good advice from Clarington. I have a Border Collie, he is old now. I have had BCs for the last 40 or so years. The first word to teach them is "NO". I never left them unattended in the garden when they were little.

There was an area for the loo and on the formal lawn going to the loo was forbidden. In this house I am lucky to be surrounded by woods that belong to me (I live in France), but with a smaller garden the loo area must be cleaned up when the puppy isn't looking. You don't want him to think he was wrong after all or that you are his servant!

He will chew much less as he grows up. My currant dog stopped chewing things after about 6 months, but he's not really a chewer.

Once we had a thread where people wrote about what their weather was doing. It was quite useful as people could warn those who were travelling if conditions were bad. Also interesting to see the different conditions in different parts of the country.

Today, in Dordogne, it is has been raining, is now just grey and was 1° this morning.

I've read on other threads that some of you have snow.

New wall planters need advice on planting them up :)

I have stone planters just a little bit bigger in width and height. They are too small for perennials but I plant annuals in them each year. Trailing plants that hang down the wall would help make it prettier, such as trailing petunias, million bells, diascia, lobelia etc.

I plant violas in mine in the autumn for spring flowering then dig them up after risk of frost is over and plant summer flowering annuals.

You could paint the wall and, if funds ran to it, put a large planter with trellis attached to the wall and grow a clematis, suitable for growing in a pot.
