For whom do we garden .............

As we've got on to blueberries, does it matter if the two plants I bought this spring are the same variety? The GC only had one sort.

Good morning Verdun, how did you type that when you were asleep?!

Morning all. Cloudy - not what was forecast!

Hope you had a good holiday GG. I had a good time in England. Bought lots of seeds too and plants, including 3 pulmonarias. They are hard to find here in the GCs, perhaps because they grow wild here. I have a shady bit for them and some hostas in my new bed.

Here is my new bed so far, not finished yet.

 Still at the digging, manuring stage, one "Early Sensation" clematis in, but no flowers on it. Then I planted a bit more and went to England for 10 days.

 My babies in the GH grew while I was away.


Good Evening FORKERS

Spent morning in GH and veggie garden, sowed seeds, put lots of snapdragons and nasturtiums in cold frames to harden off. This afternoon planted, weeded and moved heleniums and a tall pink campanula that were in the wrong places.

Salino, I've now found on another thread that if you click on "edit" the photos disappear when you "save changes". You have to re-do them.

Gosh, Jeannie, you sound a really generous person.

I hate it when delivery men say they'll come in the morning so you wait in, then they come in the afternoon, when you've gone out. I always wonder what people who go out to work do? I'm retired now.

Are we allowed to start G yet? I don't think there are many Fs!

Geranium, there are so many beautiful perennial ones. Psilostemon is one of my favourites.

 If Verdun is around I'm sure he has lots of suggestions in this family.

A couple of years ago I would have said for the deer! They stripped my veg garden and nipped off all the flower heads and ate all the roses. For the last 12 years or so they had been getting bolder. They ate the pansies in the pots on the terrace right by the house. I was getting frantic! Then OH put up a high fence around the veg garden and fenced the main bit of the flower garden. It's made a huge difference. He couldn't do the whole thing as it's around an acre and an irregular shape.

It's a real shame about the small photos problem because I can't quite see them, but the 4th looks like thyme as well. What does it smell like if you crush a leaf?
