HELLO FORKERS!

Bonjour.

Verdun could send the sun south too, please.

DD, something has been nipping tops off seedlings in my GH, starting with Cerinthe. Look away now squeamish ones. I put down mousetraps and the problem is now resolved.

Supermarket this morning.

Been rose pruning, but it rained.

Going to eat soon and watch TV in front of woodburner.

I wonder how Dove is today.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Have pruned and tied up 2 1/2 Albertine roses full of prickles, then I realised it was raining and I was wet.

It's my birthday

I hope you've had a good Birthday so far, Fruitcake.

 

Tree and screening ideas

Silver birch can grow quite tall, but it has non invasive roots and is light and airy, which is why they can be planted in smallish gardens. I have a silver birch jacquemontii, which isn't huge after 22 years. I think in your garden that 3 might be pushing it a bit, but you can get a multi stemmed one. Photo is my tree in winter.

Crab apples are good for small gardens. So is Amalanchier Lamarkii. Lovely white blossom and autumn colour.

 

Is this normal

My Sarah Bernhardt isn't showing yet, I'm not worried, she comes up every year when she's ready.
