HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Posted: 03/04/2016 at 09:13

Morning all. Sunny here. Hello P Pam.

We used to have swallows but they don't come any more. A wren and a redstart use their nests, but they've been falling off the wall, only one left, someone is relining it.

Has anyone heard the cuckoo? It's been around for about a week.

We are going to the after concert lunch today. I wanted a shower, but no hot water. We had a little power cut. When that happens the water heater turns itself off.

 Here is mine, in June 2014, it hums with bees all summer. I hope it does well for you, Linda.

Plants for shaded area

Thought this looked familiar, photos and all, I answered about shade plants in Nathalie's bulb thread on the 30th, didn't notice this one.

It's rather elderly polycarbonate and dirt has got inside the air holes. There is some elderly bubble wrap hanging on the wall too. But it does help to shade a bit. It's raining as well. It can get very hot when the sun shines though. 2 roof windows and one door.

Well done nut!

I potted up loads of seedlings today, but haven't taken photos yet. Took photos of the plug plants I potted up a few days ago.

I had 6 in 2014, but only 2 made it through the winter, so I had 2 in 2015. They aren't showing any signs, but perhaps it's too early. I should have taken cuttings.

Hope it works better this time, Chicky. Must be very worrying and mentally draining for you.

I've spent some time today in the GH. Now have about 520 babies potted up, counting the plug plants that I'd already done.

I've been in the GH potting up my home grown seeds, Lobelia, Isotoma, Penstemons, Petunias, Antirrhinums, Cosmos, Ageratum and some tomatoes. Together with the plug plant delivery I think I have 520 babies.

Gosh, Gardener's Boy, will you be opening your garden to the public when it's done?
