I don't dead head petunias, I know you should but I have too many, they last 'til the frosts anyway.

Can anybody identify these?

Crab apples, amalanchier, one of the smaller flowering cherries.

But Artjak your photos do have white borders on my computer. Lovely photos all the same. The photos should enlage a lot when you click on them, but they don't.

Good Evening FORKERS

Quiet tonight. Sitting room 15°, put heating back on and lit woodburner. Poured. Didn't watch The Apprentice as OH didn't go to choir, watched Midsomer Murders.

Except I'm not sure how to pronounce it!

I love petunias they are so easy and colourful and they don't mind the heat and drought in a SW France summer. If we have one this year. Pouring.

Beautiful colours, Wintersong (love that name) and Artjak.

Can anybody identify these?

Wild cherries here are very sweet (when properly ripe), but not much flesh for a big stone. But I agree with Fairygirl - beech or hornbeam for the 2nd one.

Problem with Bluebells

How strange, are there any others nearby? English ones are slimmer with drooping heads and longer slimmer bells. Spanish are more upright, pretty, but can be thugs. Do you know anyone who wants them? If you don't, then just dig them out and chuck them - but not on the compost heap!

I sent a post which isn't there now, perhaps I forgot submit reply.

I just wanted to say I have a Bowl of Beauty and I love it and I love it's name as well.

Pruning was a good one from Verdun. I forgot it doesn't have to be just plants. So what about "potting up" or "potting on". Or just pottering about in the garden!

Make do and mend

I made staging for the GH from a really cheap special offer shelving unit from a French supermarket. The extra staging for baby plants in the spring is cheap planks of wood on cheap metal trestles that I take down when the plants go in the cold frames to make room to plant the tomatoes. The cold frames are made from cheap building blocks with air holes in them, lined with polystyrene.
