HELLO FORKERS!

Evening all. Been very busy weeding the last 2 days. Having a charity garden party on Saturday, want garden to look nice, but at the moment all I see are weeds. I expect when it's all over I'll see the plants again. Nearly 60  booked to come, the most I've had. They will get a tea of sandwiches, scones, strawberry jam, cake and strawberries and cream. I have helpers. There is an entrance fee, a raffle and a plant sale.

Morning all.

I hate shoe shopping, so many beautiful shoes that don't fit. I have big, broad, flat feet, size 7, I'm 5' 3". And I have a hammer toe and the beginnings of a bunion. Yuk! Not even many of the Hotter shoes fit. And my feet burn when I stand for long.

Weeding today, again.

Hello Marg. Welcome. As well as talking about gardening you will improve at mastering the computer! To send photos click on the oak tree and be guided, but allow time. We'd love to see them. Have fun here, there is a thread for photos of our gardens.

MrToast, you may not get the answer you want here. This forum is filled with people who love gardens and gardening. You, yourself, said that the garden would suit someone who loves gardening. We love gardening and you are asking our advice on how to dig it all up.

That seedling looks just like my baby butternut squash that I sowed direct into the ground.

I have a Knautia, but it's dark crimson. It's seeded itself, but the original plant is still there after 4 years.
