Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 28/09/2013 at 22:07

Rained this morning. Went for walk in the woods with dog this afternoon to look for ceps. Didn't find any, but lost my glasses. OH made the flat pack cold frame he bought me when we went to England recently, part birthday present. He gave me a black coctail dress as well for going to the opera in Venice. Perhaps I mentioned that before.

Huge thunderstorm this evening, missed Fiona Fullerton and most of the Hairy Biker in Strictly this evening as lost the satellite signal. Poor dog was very frightened.

Dahlias - do they all have tubers?

Posted: 28/09/2013 at 21:58

I leave my dahlias in the ground in winter and most survive. Arabian nights, Park Princess, Bishop's Children (that I grew from seed) and some others even survived the year it was -17°! Pooh and the others I planted last year (forgotten names) all survived -10°. I live in Dordogne, winters are usually colder than in UK, last winter and spring were very wet, but years of manure and limestone rock under the earth mean my beds are well drained, although it was clay to start with.

I sowed asters twice this spring, but nothing happened. I sowed in trays in the GH just like the zinnias, French marigolds and petunias. Have you any tips, Marion, or was it a duff packet of seeds?

It's climbing rose Mme Alfred Carrière growing over a pillar about 2 1/2 metres tall that forms an arch with another pillar and a beam over some stone steps.

Fuschias

That was the one I thought it could be. It is a trailing variety. Now look it up and see if it's like yours. It isn't frost hardy, so you would have to bring it indoors in winter. It will lose it's leaves in winter.

Pruning

Posted: 28/09/2013 at 10:50

As it gets more mature even if you prune it after flowering, it will be over 6 feet tall.
