HELLO FORKERS!

I had an email from the French Post, my parcel will arrive tomorrow. I think it's 6 packs of 35 plug plants of violas and pansies, 1 pack of forget-me-nots, some erisymums, and some others. Each plug usually has 2 plants in it so if I'm careful with the potting up I will get nearly twice as many!

NO Steve, not to base, only trim off this year's growth with lavender or it won't grow again. Don't cut into the woody bit.

Have had an email from the gardens open to public man. He now has a co-ordinator for Dordogne and is hoping to visit with him in 2 weeks. The garden will look more awful by then

 The new "Open Gardens" scheme in France, for charity, seems to be gaining momentum.

Glad Pa is OK Dove.

Fidget, can't get i player in France.

Spent the morning shifting rotted manure from the pile by the summer paddock field shelter to the pile at the end of the flower garden. 2 garden trailer loads, but that is 10 - 12 wheelbarrow loads. Lots more to do, 3 - 4 years worth, crumbly and black. The farmer cleans out the shelter yearly with his tractor. Shoulders ache. Would have done twice that 10 years ago. During the winter it will be used for mulching the flower beds, probably full of weed seeds, as usual.

 Sternbergia Lutea and Dahlia "Pooh".

 

I put these on the gardens thread, but as they are stars at the moment here they are again.

On page 63 Dove had a lovely wigwam of thunbergia but when I clicked on my laptop it stayed sideways. Does it only turn round if you have a tablet?
