HELLO FORKERS!

Good luck with your Open Day, Woody. Hope it goes as well as mine, but I expect you will get more people in England. The French haven't really cottoned on to it yet. Most of my 57 visitors were English.

mrhursty, your link doesn't work for me. Did you do it by clicking on the oak tree? Then get rid of the error message, wait for your photo to arrive then click save.

Good morning Marion.

I think lots of people read your thread but look on it as being your thread so they don't post anything. I won't be posting soon as we are going to New York, leaving Tuesday. OH's choir has been invited to sing in Carnegie Hall on Sunday. I hope the housesitter waters my pots and the tomatoes in the GH, a heatwave is forecast here.

Morning all.

KEF, DD's Open Garden is 29th June.

Rain forecast for tonight, then heatwave up to 35°. We will be away then, so I hope housesitter waters the pots properly.

I'm glad you had a good Open Day on Wednesday. You have a lovely garden.

I've been busy again, having had my Open Day, I held a Strawberry Tea today for a cancer charity, 40 people came, was quite hard work but I had a good team of helpers.

TOMATO BLIGHT- What to do next year?

That's funny, had notification by email of this thread, but I hadn't written on it before and now I see it dates from last September!

TOMATO BLIGHT- What to do next year?

Posted: 30/05/2015 at 22:15

I live in SW France, Jill. I see you live in mid W France. But blight was very bad all around here last year. Some years blight is bad and other years there is hardly any. It seems worse when the summer is wetter than usual. I grow tomatoes every year, sometimes very successfully, sometimes not. You could spray them with something anti fungal like bouillie bordelaise.

Preparing hard-packed soil to start a garden from scratch

Posted: 30/05/2015 at 22:06

If the garden isn't too big I would dig it first, get down deeper. Then dig in compost and manure if you can get it. That's what I've done in the past. It takes a bit of work and time to get the soil you describe.

Thanks Chicky. I think I have eaten too much cake.  Not very comfy. There were scones, jam and cream too.
