MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 09/08/2013 at 08:53

Morning all. Shopping this morning. Will drop in to the GC as they have sent me a voucher for the princely sum of 7€. Need some rose fertiliser anyway. Won't be tempted to buy plants as last time I went the plants were looking very tatty and unloved.

Good Evening FORKERS

As you are talking of Etoile Violette, a friend gave me a cutting of a clematis that she didn't know the name of. It's grown up now and I think it is Etoile Violette. What do you think?

 The second pic is the one I meant to send. Not sure how to delete the first now.

Nasty Painful Bites !!

My son was bitten on his heel years ago, 2 puncture marks about 5mm apart. It was a viper and he was very ill.

Evening all. Weeded in Veg garden today. OH has just gone to England until Tuesday. Just had a Snickers ice cream. But had home grown Gazpacho soup first for the healthy option.

So long as it doesn't dry out when you are away. Look on the packets of seed in the Garden Centre for advice. I can't recommend as I live in France.

 They are all a bit battered by last night's heavy rain and the weekend storms. We had some huge hail which have made holes in the tomatoes.

 The one above is a big one, Goldquelle.

 I like it against this dark dahlia.

On the page before the Bearded One mentioned African Blue Basil. Here is my African Basil that Lily Louise gave me when we visited her garden (NGS) when we were in England.

MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 08/08/2013 at 09:16

Morning all. Much cooler today, may get some gardening done. OH is off to England today to see his family. I'm staying here with dog and horses.

GH tomatoes been cropping for about 4 weeks, but usually I start picking in June from a couple of early plants, not this year - too cold and wet. Outdoor ones only starting from the last week. Some got damaged in recent hailstorm.
