Hello Forkers ... September edition

Morning all.

I hope the reason Hosta hasn't posted since is because he went to sleep.

Have potted up 200 plug plants, a bit over half way. Shall do the rest today. Sunny, but rain forecast for tomorrow.

Identification and pruning

It looks like a common dogwood, cornus sanguinea. In my garden it grows like a pest and it suckers. It responds well to pruning so if you prune it it will pop up again. I'm starting to hate it! You can buy cornus with lovely fire coloured stems for winter colour. You prune them in the spring as the new stems that grow are the most colourful.

Have you had the MRI scan Aunty Rach? Was it today? Hope it went well.

That's pretty, Dove. Sorry Wonky's hands are still painful.

Have been potting up plug plants. It was very warm in the GH even though I stood by the open door.

Have there been any strong winds recently? Maybe it blew off another building.

Morning all.

About to leave daughter and go home. OH rang. My plug plants have arrived, pansies, violas and bellis daisies.

I think euonymus, mine looks like that.

Cut them off. You don't want them on a variegated shrub so the pruning after flowering doesn't apply.

Indoor plants sticky leaves

Sounds like scale insects. I have found them quite difficult to get rid of. There are products you can use which you will find in a Garden Centre.

Morning all, so glad about the little hedgehog.

Gorgeous photo from Chicklet.

Daughter and grandsons have gone to school. I must make a spag bol for their lunch, half day on Wednesdays.
