Dahlias - do they all have tubers?

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 23:11

Dahlias grown from seed or cuttings do eventually grow tubers.

My garden has a new flush of colour with the autumn flowers, such as Michaelmas daisies and sedums.

Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 18:12

I just posted on Morning Forkers as I had an email notification. As site has been playing up I didn't feel like searching for Evening Forkers. But site seemed to be working better. However when I came here I still had to refresh.

Bought lots of tulips in garden centre this morning, stacked logs this afternoon.

My Michaelmas daisies are out.

 One above is "Little Pink Beauty", but it isn't nearly as pink as the one I had years ago in England, although I bought it in England. I bought the next ones here in France.

Push pull hoe

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 17:49

This is a very common hoe used in France, that I've rarely seen in England. Could it be anything like this? http://www.jardindeco.com/Grattoir-Lame-De-14-Natur-elle-En-Acier-Et-Bois-146x14cm-F-130,3867  Some of them in garden centres or farm shops have another sort of hoe or rake on the back.

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all. Site still not right. Nor was I yesterday, sore eyes, coughing, pharmacist said could be allergy - gave me cough medicine with antihistamine, made me sleepy.

Feel bit better now. Going to the GC for tulips

Sick roses

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 09:17

Hollyhocks get a disease called "Hollyhock rust". Here is what the RHS says about it http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/Profile.aspx?pid=564

Roses and clematis both need a fair amount of food and water. Have you fed them? When well fed and watered they are less susceptable to disease. A lot of plants, such as Michaelmas daisies, Monarda and Phlox look mouldy when allowed to dry out. You think they are mouldy because of damp but it's the other way round. The summer has been dry this year.

GardenIng jokes

Jeannie, you wouldn't be jealous of my weather in winter, Dordogne is often colder and wetter than England. Better get off here, I read everyon's jokes but I'm no good at telling them, so I'll get my very light, thin, cotton jacket!
