Overgrown Garden in France

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 18:46

Hello Jap3, I'm the lady who lives in France that OL mentioned. I didn't see this as I was on holiday in England, didn't have time or internet connection to read everything. Saint Yrieux is about 50 mins from me, I'm about 20 mins north east of Périgueux.

We moved to this house in 1990, no garden then, farmyard and field and unlived in for 6 years. But I was younger then! It was hard work, especially as we are in Perigord Blanc, known for it's limestone. Good luck with your garden.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Verdun said "tomato leaves need to be dry to avoid blight.......blight needs damp leaves to take hold so in a GH blight should, in theory, not exist" which is exactly what I thought, yet somewhere on this forum people were advising misting the leaves. Never heard that one before. Think mine have blight because it's been mild and damp instead of the usual hot and sunny.

What's the star in your garden right now

It looks so beautiful now, I remember the hedge too. You've worked very hard.

What do you do for drainage in a jug, has it got a hole in the bottom?

Blossom end rot isn't a disease it's a disorder from lack of water of irregular watering so it's not catching. Some of the first courgettes always fall off or go brown at the ends then they romp away. My cucumbers never do very well. Strawberries are best in the second year, but need netting against birds. My OH mowed down my young pear tree, didn't even notice it in the grass! But when it all works it's great!

Found Stacey's pics on previous page. I clicked on "view first unread post" and it took me to this page, but I hadn't seen some of the last page yet.

Saw yours OL, not blight, blossom end rot, curable with correct watering. Mine is usually fatal.

Where did Stacey put her pics?

Who knows their roses?

Here is a page of pink roses from David Austin, so you see identifying, even with a photo, is difficult.  http://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/american/searchlist.asp  Sorry, had a look and all the pink roses that were on that page have gone, don't know how to delete reply.
