Morning all. Thank you for the good luck wishes. I'll need them. The weather forecast is awful, thunderstorms and strong winds.

There is a thread called "So..." which started off about grammar and language, but now it's getting onto childhood memories. It's rather fun. But as the title doesn't mention that no one will know unless they are already posting on that thread.

Do you have any memories about your childhood that you would like to share? Doesn't have to be about gardening, but can be if you want. Can be about school, uniform, school dinners, what you did in the holidays, clothes etc.

What is your weather like?

If you use glyphosate that will kill the grass too. You need a lawn weedkiller.

The cutting garden 2016

Posted: 03/05/2016 at 22:48

I've made a cutting garden in the vegetable garden. OH put up a trellis for my sweet peas. I've sown clarkia, ammi, calendula, larkspurs and cosmos directly into the soil and they are just showing. I have more plants still in the GH which will join them, more cosmos, antirrhinums, zinnias, lavatera Silver Cup. I bought bare roots of gypsophila in February which I potted up and are now 3 good plants.

Wollerton Hall vs. Snow Goose

I have Mme Alfred Carrière, it grows pretty tall, probably too tall for a front door. A friend of mine has Snow Goose and loves it. It would be the right size for a front door.

Planting strawberries now

Morning all. Cloudy. Had a GH shuffle this morning after feeding the horses. Now the coldframes are full as well as the GH.

I never noticed mucking out clearing the nose, but my horses don't live in. They have a field shelter so mucking out isn't enclosed.

Hands are aching from weeding. Still have 2 more beds and some tidying to do.
