Free zinnia seeds are tomatoes!

Posted: 13/07/2015 at 23:35

My zinnias were zinnias, rather leggy when young, grown in GH then planted out. Started flowering about 3 weeks ago.

I think it could be the fertiliser. I've noticed it with clematis too. Roses are hungry, thirsty plants.

Evening all, what's left of it. Still in Suffolk. We looked at pretty villages today, such as Lavenham and Kersey. Saw Gainsborough's house and paintings in Sudbury. Went to Bury Saint Edmunds. Had salmon and salad in a pub. Drank a half of Adnams bitter. It rained but didn't matter too much.

Tomorrow we are going back to Eastbourne, via Hyde Hall.

Pub in pretty Kersey. Some houses are painted and some are beamy.

Morning all.

Glad you had a good day Dove, so did we. Beth Chatto's garden was lovely, a damp garden with ponds and a dry gravel garden. But why did I think it would be bigger? Website said 7 acres but it didn't feel so big. Bought a very blue sea holly, a salvia I haven't seen before, a spirea with red flowers and Solanum Glasnevin. Then we went to another nearby private garden called Green Islands, where they do garden course days. Lovely too. I bought a lysimachia "Beaujolais" - Verdun's fault!

Then we went to Dedham, very pretty village, lovely church, and Flatford Mill where Constable painted "The Hay Wain". The heavens opened and we got soaked!

Oooooooooooo

Verdun, perhaps if you put tomatoes in your title then Italophile might notice it.

Thank you fairygirl. But I can't open your photos, except for the grouse.

What a sh**ty way Clari's man has behaved. I wonder why. I'd be inclined to dump him, Clari deserves better. Made me cross.

We are going to Beth Chatto's garden today and Dedham Vale. Just had huge breakfast in the B & B, not sure I can move!

HELLO FORKERS!

Dove, I think you just made the announcement!!

Weather is the same as Dove's, we aren't that far from her. Going to different B & B today in Dedham Vale. Will see Beth Chatto's garden while we are there.
