Birdy, your French is pretty good. I speak it better than I write it, but I have a very English accent French men say it is charming
Funny, I've had notifications by email for other threads, but not this one.
Hello, KEF. Leaving England on Wednesday, staying with daughter in North of France, home on Friday. Didn't see the sheep killer plant.
J'ai compris, Birdy, sauf qu'il n'y a plus de Marmites dans ma cuisine!
Yes, they do need something to wind around. Wires across the wall attached to screwed in eyelets would do and be quite discreet.
Went to Tesco to buy English supplies to take back to France and disaster no Marmite! Will try Waitrose tomorrow. Back to France on Wednesday. Got a good selection of plants and seeds to take back.
I remember talking about this before, too. Mine's obvious, I'm called Liz and my garden is a big too big to cope with so I'm always Busy. What a shame Busy-Lizzies got that fungal disease, though the ones I buy in France are OK.
Summer has definately arrived, whatever the weather. Can't show you anything in my garden in France at the meoment as I'm on holiday in England. We have visited gardens and I've put them on this thread, very colourful - especially Great Dixter which I have a soft spot for. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/gardens-we-have-visited-2013/80843-2.html
We went to Wisley on Friday, weather a bit gloomy, but it only really poured when I went to buy plants - so I didn't spend too much!
Honeysuckle and roses are the obvious ones. Some wisteria smells lovely but not such a long flowering period. Need to ask "Google" or look in a book then go to your garden centre and see what looks right and smell what smells good.
That is why some of us find it a bit confusing. Sometimes you want to answer someone on the morning thread, but you go out for the day and then it's the evening thread where your answer doesn't make sense. But when I suggested just making it one the people looking at it then wanted it left how it is.
