Fork Handles

Morning all.

What I'm missing more than bigger text (which can be changed with ctrl +) are the emails to say someone has written to a thread that I'm interested in. Now I have to search through latest posts.

Spring has sprung in Dordogne! This must be why people move south. 11° sunny, 19° forecast for this afternoon. No frosts for next week, but I'll believe that when I see it!

Off to my daughter's, near Poitiers, after lunch, for the weekend. Hope the site is back to normal when I get back.

Morning all, welcome back Woo2.

Thanks for the info on the text. What I'm really missing are the emails to tell you that someone has written on a post you are following.

Perhaps this time Spring has sprung in SW France at last. 11° and sunny now 19° forecast this afternoon. Going to my daughter's for the weekend. Hope the tech problems have been sorted when I get back.


Named Plants

Years ago my 4 children gave me a pink clematis Montana called Elizabeth. I still have it and the children have all left home and produced 6 grandchildren between them (so far!)

Tomato seedlings

Couldn't you bring them indoors for the night?

There is a technical fault apparently. Everyone's writing has gone small.

I haven't had a single email all evening about posts, and the writing is still tiny and the last post I wrote on Fork Handles suddenly jumped and disappeared.

There have been loads of posts and I haven't had a single email all evening. What is going on? And I started writing this one and the page jumped and it disappeared. The writing is still tiny. But it looks like it's time to say goodnight. I wonder if it will be OK in the morning.

Just sending post so I can see what it's like. See what you mean, it's very small. Now for a smiley - That's the right size. Been pruning roses this afternoon, Constance Spry and Albertine. I know Albertine is a rambler and you should do it after it's flowered, but I can't see what I'm doing then, for foliage and it's very prickly.

Good Morning - 21 March

We had an item about Elaine Rolfe on another thread so it's good to see an update and to know that she won't have to pay for the destruction of the garden. It is such a shame it was such a beautiful garden. I saw photos of it on Google.

Plant direct or seed tray

Posted: 21/03/2013 at 14:39

Carrots don't like root disturbance so it can be tricky trnsplanting from a seed tray to the garden. One method is to use a length of plastic guttering, fill with compost, sow seeds, keep in greenhouse or under cover. Then when ready to put outside (after hardening off) make a furrow in the earth and slide the contents of the guttering into the furrow.
