HELLO FORKERS!

The maternity unit in local hospital is brand new and sparkling clean, mothers have single rooms, lots of helpful staff too. I was impressed with the 3 other French hospitals I've seen for my other grandchildren. The one in Poitiers was especially good.

Good news about son in law, Dove.

Little Edward is so sweet. He opened his eyes and made little noises. Mum and Dad are very tired, it was a long labour. Mum and baby will stay in hospital for about 4 days, in France they like the milk to come in before letting them out.

No gardening done and now it's raining.

Hello Mike. I'm glad your blood test appointment went OK and the lady was nice. It does help! Hurts more when you are tense.

The Paul Bunnell test show whether you have had glandular fever when young.

I love the scent of the flowers. It looks healthy enough to me.

Dahlias

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 22:19

You put dahlias out after the risk of there being a frost, so normally not until mid May. The tubers can be started earlier in pots in a greenhouse.

Should planter be "self-contained" or open at the bottom?

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 22:17

I think open would be better too. It would need to have some openings anyway for drainage.

Geranium 'Rozanne'

How big are they? Did you buy plug plants or fully grown plants? When I bought 6 plug plants they weren't that big until the second year. I also bought one in a pot from the GC and it was quite big in it's first year.
