HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 11/02/2014 at 15:25

Thought I'd have another go at laying the paving stones on the the veg garden path. Wasn't raining, as soon as I started it poured. Happens every time! But I suppose that is a minor detail compared with the troubles others are having.

Good thing they are doing the filling early Dove, can lead to nasties such as abscesses if not treated.

How old are the boys, Tracey?

Dove, see you've been reading the "Hi from Worcestershire" thread, the world is your lobster, 'cos the lady didn't like oysters! Note to others, it's really interesting, the lady has sold her house and is going to go round the world in a camper van with her large dog and she's quite elderly, well over 27!

New Garden!

Good luck with it all. How exciting! I find April is a pretty good month for sowing in the veg garden. Hopefully it will have dried out a bit and the ground will be warming up. Potatoes, peas, spinach, beetroot, carrots, parsnips and more can be sown in the ground. Runner beans and French beans can be started in the greenhouse. I would buy little plants of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, courgettes for planting out in May after the frosts.

Sensible to leave the flower borders for this year until you know what's what, but you could have annuals in pots for colour.

Buddleias can be pruned very hard, but they will still make a lot of growth and become pretty big again.

Spring Bulbs?!!

Plant them in pots and feed them when they die down, then they may be good for next year. Some may flower this year which means you will have some pretty pots. I don't know how many you have but they can go quite close together. Then in autumn you can put them where you'd planned and the builders will have gone (hopefully!)

Morning all. 1° cloudy.

All is back to normal, couldn't hear breakfast TV in bed while having coffee this morning as OH was singing so loudly in the bathroom!

Have a good day everyone.

Lily, I see you live in Sussex, lots of lovely gardens round there. What about asking people if they live near to visit Nymans, lovely in June, or Sussex Prairie Gardens later in the year? Or another?

Haven't really popped in here this afternoon as OH came back from visiting grandchildren in England.

I like Sage and Onion too.

Bedtime, night all.

I'd like a plant like this...

Knautia is very happy in my garden in SW France and it doesn't mind drought, but scabious always gets mildew and always dies.

Growing mistletoe

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 15:11

Alan Titchmarsh did it years ago with fresh mistletoe berries on Gardeners World. He made a little cut in the bark and pushed the berry in. A few took, can't remember, may have only been 2, but he did several.
