Phacelia lasts a long time in water. I once used it as green manure, but it was so pretty I picked them.

ideas on what to plant

Sounds as though you need plants for dry shade, such as Brunnera, Foxgloves, Geranium Macrorrhizum  and Phaeum, Dryopteris ferns, Euphorbia Robbiae, Epimedium.

Is it just me?

I don't, because I put one end of the hosepipe into the watering can so that when I walk about I don't waste any water. The hose spray takes ages to water enough and the hose on it's own blasts the compost out of the pots.

HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Posted: 23/07/2016 at 14:09

When we had DIL's flat in Eastbourne for English visits, before buying the Norfolk cottage, we used to go the theatre in Brighton, spend the afternoon there first. We went on the bus as parking is incredibly expensive. Will stay a night with Brighton friends the end of August.


Have done 2 hours of weeding and chopping.

Thanks Papi Jo. I'm probably better at plants than objects!

What is your weather like?

We had some rain yesterday, late afternoon, but not nearly enough.

Morning all.


We had a bit of rain last night, not as much as I'd hoped, so not enough to give Wonky any. But it has put some in the waterbutts so the blueberries will be happier.
