HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Grey and gloomy here today, what a contrast with the sun yesterday. The GC beckons. I'm thinking I'll cheat and buy courgette plants, still haven't sown them.

I had a Duchess of Edinburgh in a pot, but she died. Didn't know they could be fussy. Nelly Moser has survived being in a pot for about 12 years.

ID plants please

I agree with nutcutlet. Also 3 is def. pittosporum, the little dark flowers confirm it.

But Mrs. Garden, I don't want my echinaceas to turn into weeds, I have enough weeds already!

One was a new orangy pink, double one with a fat middle, the others were just ordinary pink ones. Loads of a weed that may have been fat hen where I had planted the tulips. I had manured  the tulip areas with horse manure. It wasn't there when the tulips were in flower.

Your garden sounds like mine, Chicky. My house is on a slope and I have walls and steps like those.

Have weeded over half the middle bed and some of the big bed which I'm going to call the long bed from now on. It's 20m long and nearly 2m deep. No sign of the echinaceas and Geranium Ann Folkard seems to have disappeared too

I am in France and I grow Walleriana from seed. Haven't had any problems so far. But they need sowing fairly early as they are slow starters. I had a problem about 3 years ago when I bought some as I ran out.

Bedding begonias will grow in the same conditions.

Come in for lunch. Been weeding the middle bed, but it got too hot in the sun so weeded some of big border instead as it has morning shade.

Do they know when Mike is for the chopping block? So we can be around for hand holding.
