HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 24/02/2014 at 09:07

Good morning all.

I don't want to cause an upset, but I'm pretty sure Chicky's primulas are not auriculas, as the leaves are wrong - should be smoother, not wrinkly. I think they are gold and silver laced polyanthus. Really pretty and make a good theatre, but one needs to know because auriculas need sun and polyanthus prefer shadier.

Help save my ivy!

So would I, the ivy that I don't want on my wall grows back really fast each time I cut it down.

It's been a lovely sunny day and I've actually spent 4 hours gardening. Pruned another climbing rose. The roses are starting to confuse me as they've all starting growing and it's still only February. I hate cutting off shoots with new leaves. Dug out a horrid stinging nettle from under the lilac, did some weeding, clearing of ivy and clipped a caryopteris.

First daffodil is out. Photo on Garden Gallery. I hope some people will put their gardens on Garden Gallery, some have already. I thought the camera thread was originally for photo techniques and good photos of other things. There is also a "Gardens we have Visited" thread somewhere. I love looking at everyone's photos.

It's been a lovely sunny day today and crocuses have been out and the first daffodil. There is a big black insect (?anyone know it) on a pulmonaria which is still mostly in bud.

Cash would be a good option for those overseas, like me. But must be sure it gets to the right people.

Morning all.

The weird posts have been removed, but Morning Forkers and Evening Forkers still say it was Verdun (must be the false one) who started them, not Brumbull who really did start them. Did Brumbull take Verdun's name and also added a few others or has someone hi-jacked Brumbull?

Thanks Chicky and Nut. I'm off to bed now. Goodnight. x

But if he's calling himself Verdun and we ignore him does that mean we ignore our Verdun too?
