Posted: 24/03/2016 at 18:28

I have read all your posts, in case anyone wonders!

My plug plants arrived today. Have potted up around 200, 150 left for tomorrow. If I get time, making birthday cake for daughter.

Glad Ma is feeling perkier, Dove.

Well done and congratulations to KEF's neice. 

Came in from the GH, where I'm too hot, for a cuppa. Plug plants came, potting up.

Morning all. Dog woke me at 6.30 this morning, I am not a morning person  He is getting earlier, used to be 8am and before he went a bit senile he never woke me.

My plug plants arrive today. Need to go to supermarket but must wait for the postman. So this afternoon will be spent potting up about 250 babies.

Tomorrow morning will be spent making a birthday cake for Daughter 1 to take to the family lunch at Daughter 2 on Saturday. Also a leek and walnut roulade if I have time. Then Good Friday Church in the afternoon.

I've had my Nandina for over 10 years in alkali soil, it's fine. The RHS says acid, alkali or neutral soil and you can grow it in chalky soil.

Nice to chat to DD at the Open Garden meeting. Glad the cakes were delicious, I made one of them! Open Gardens is really getting going in France it seems, more organised too. Wish their website was a bit quicker though, but it's being sorted just not yet.

I hope Ma picks up soon Dove.

It's not a Berberis, it's a Nandina. Bob didn't mean bamboo was Nandina. He was replying to garjobo.

My daughter has a hedge of bamboo, quite tall, between her lawn and her fence. She says when it grows in her lawn it just gets mowed, it seems quite well behaved, looks good. Think it's Phyllostachys aurea, but that can run so best to put an underground barrier. But if in pots it shouldn't be a problem, would need large pots though.

Swept the middle lawn terrace and weeded under the Paul's Scarlet Climber rose - the dreaded couch grass has struck and I can't get it all out

What is this

Does it look like this?http://wildflowerfinder.org.uk/Flowers/H/HerbRobert/HerbRobert.htm

I have lots of this and weedkiller doesn't work.

Feeling sorry for myself today

I'm sorry about your back, hope it feels better soon.
