HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Glad you enjoyed Tatton Park, Liri. I recorded it as OH wanted his meal in the garden.


I enjoyed judging the show, it was fun. But, have to admit, I looked up the RHS rules beforehand. They were all nice and a slap-up tea was provided. But it was hard judging jam that you couldn't taste! Flower arrangements are a bit personal taste, but the veg was easy, chose even sizes where there were several, eg 3 tomatoes, 6 beans, and lack of blemish. I live over an hour away so could escape!

Lovely. We must have the same taste in clematis, I have all those except Star of India and Minuet. I love the scent of Betty Corning. Your first one looks like my Perle d'Azur.

Morning all.


DD I can let you have more plants for your new garden. That Rudbeckia can be cut in half the end of May (Chelsea Chop) to keep it's height down.


This afternoon I'm going to a gardener's club show - as a Judge! They asked me when I went and gave them a talk about creating an English garden in SW France.

The handle of a cooking implement, hanging on the black thing?


A penknife with the blade out sideways?

Pretty dog, Herbaceous. But is that the dog or is it a fox in the 2nd photo? It seems to have a white tip on its tail, which the dog hasn't.

Thank you.


The green ones are fennel that has gone to seed. There is Lavatera "Silver Cup" in with the gladioli. The white ones are Ammi Majus. The small pink ones are Clarkia. There is also a pink one, French seed, Balsamine. The big yellow and brown ones are Rudbeckia "Denver Daisy" and the dark red ones are Dahlia "Arabian Night".

Plant or Weed?

Right clicking and open in a new tab doesn't work for me either.


Agree it looks like an aster.
