Help needed for a novice gardener

Posted: 17/10/2013 at 23:05

A mummy hare had 4 babies in my big herbaceous border a few years ago! And the deer ate all my roses. Is that what you mean, Jim? Oh, and a badger died in the lean-to, but from the look of it I think it was old age.

Do tomatoes with blight taste OK? I would have thought frying them would kill the fungus.

Today I feel so happy....

That farm sounds idyllic, but I bet a lot of hard work goes into it. I'm glad you're still with us Pentillie, someone asked about you recently and I remembered you as the one who started this lovely thread.

Well done for the weight loss pg. That sounds strange, I think of you as Bev.

It was a lovely day today, planted up 5 troughs and a pot this afternoon.

HELLO FORKERS!

Disaster, last night OH spilt glass of wine in his lap top. After lots of mopping up computer came on, so he did a back up. Big relief. This morning it's not working.

Morning all.

My messages are all in the wrong order too.

Lily, whenever there is a problem that page always comes up with oops and a squashed tomato.

Yes, meant blue flush, but had to look at Google pictures as Wild Swan doesn't seem to have arrived in Dordogne yet.

Now I've learnt something from this. Mine was labelled in the French Garden Centre as Wilmottianum, but on looking it up I'm pretty sure it's Plumbaginoides. It's not very tall and it spreads.

Thanks Verdun, I'd love a choc bar.

Lamb sounds lovely WW, glad you enjoyed it.

Perhaps it was anemone Honorine Jobert, also white with yellow middles, but not the pink flush behind the petals.
