Lily Beetle

Once upon a time I had a beautiful clump of Madonna lilies. Now I don't.

Morning all. -3° frosty and sunny. Must do some GH sorting. Hopefully OH will put up the electric feed today. The zinnia seedlings on sitting room window sill have gone very leggy. Strange because the Dahlias and Cosmos next door are OK.

Must do some pruning.

Last night I had a phone call asking if I could accept a coach load of 45 for my Open Garden in May! I was worried that no one would turn up!

I was going to suggest Merriments and Marchants Hardy Plants, both sell plants, both have gardens open to the public and Merriments is a garden Centre as well. My parents lived in Battle.

Thanks Salino, I didn't know about Great Park farm, so that's one more on the list for April.

BM, my little mare is Portuguese, Lusitano, but brought up in France, trained by me so speaks English. Present from my lovely late father. Her hooves are much better and ground is drying out now so hopefully she'll be OK.

Went to supermarket, lunched in the Chinese. Why do I feel so knackered now? I never used to catch bugs either.

That happened to me too John, think it's a problem with the site. Lovely photo, thank you.

Morning all.

Hate going to the hairdresser, cut my hair this morning, have folding mirror wardrobe doors, have got used to cutting it with everything being back to front.

Going to the supermarket for supplies. OH says he'll treat me to lunch out, nothing posh, probably the Chinese.

Clematis

It all depends what group the clematis is. Group 1 which includes Montanas don't need pruning until they get too messy and straggly. Group 3, like Princess Diana, need cutting back hard. Have a look at this site to see what to do about pruning.  http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/  

Anyone done any gardening today?

Have pruned "The Pilgrim" climbing rose.

The Zinnias, free from GW, have germinated after only 2 days!

Glad you found your knitting, Liri. I found a bag with various bits of mine in it, pen, my table napkin etc in the spare bedroom that the grandchildren use. 5 yr old granddaughter is a bit like a magpie!

I pruned "the Pilgrim" climbing rose this afternoon. Loads of cranes flew over on their way to their summer home. They made a heck of a noise.
