What has happened???

Posted: 08/04/2013 at 10:47

I haven't received any unpleasant PMs either, but I can't help feeling that Verdun has to be exagerating. There are many lovely people on this forum and he is talking about it closing. Why should it? Perhaps if we avoid mentioning this trouble things would perk up. But then I always was a bit of an ostrich! Looking back over posts I see very little of people actually being unpleasant, only people being worried and emotional.

12 metre border ideas!!!

You could always give the children a little patch of garden each and some seeds. Nastutiums are quick to germinate, seeds big enough to handle, colourful and edible. Radishes are easyand need a lot of watering, so mini-watering can could be fun! When it warms up French beans are fun for children, not too tall, quick growing and can be given to Mummy to cook. Need a better summer than last year though! While they are so little they will need help, but they will grow up quicker than you realise. I can't believe that mine are now producing grandchildren!

Let's find out who gave me the Lurgy

Could have been me. I had the lurgy between you and Dove. But then it would have had to cross the channel!

Lovely day today. Rotavated veg garden - the bit I hadn't done already. Planted potatoes and lettuces. Broad beans just coming up, mange tout peas and onion sets growing. OH mowed lawns. Dug a bit more of the new bed. Planted some poppies that I bought as plugs last autumn. Now it's bedtime. Goodnight all

Talkback: Growing autumn-fruiting raspberries

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 23:50

I think you need a long summer for autumn raspberries to fruit twice successfully. Mine do, but I live in Dordogne. But some varieties don't do well here because it can be too hot. I grow one called "September". They tend to march around the veg garden and not stay where I planted them.

What type of tree is this?

Oh dear, it's not a very big photo. It just looks like a tree with autumn foliage, could be a flowering cherry.
