I love violas.

 Dicentra spectabilis is just coming out. I love it's other name of "Lady in the Bath" when you pick a flower, hold it upside down and gently squeeze it sideways.

Should be more Ls. Lilac and Lily of the Valley, all coming out here now and smelling so sweet. In France people give each other sprigs of Lily of the Valley on the 1st May and people sell them on the roadsides.

What's the weather like in your area?

Raining in Dordogne. But needed after last weeks 25°

Good morning all. GG said later ones aren't up yet! I'm always a later one, but I've always fed horses, dog, cat and checked geenhouse and cold frames before reporting in. But I'm not an early riser either.

Raining today. Supermarket and GC, need more compost and bark chippings. Got to keep the weeding down somehow. Then housework

Did you say 94 Verbascum, Andy?. A few pages ago. They will look stunning en masse.

What a lot of progress Dannyboy, thanks for showing us.

Your garden looked wonderful Fairygirl, but I hope you aren't too sad parting with it. What is your new garden like?

I'm thinking Coronilla too.


Good Evening FORKERS

Evening all (bit late). No gardening today, out to lunch. Chilly morning. When we got home late afternoon it poured and still is. Makes a change from Thursday when it was 25°. Sometimes the weather runs one's life, wanted to garden tomorrow but I think it'll rain so better do some housework, not nearly so much fun.

Now I understand why you didn't want it for your jewel border.

Pinching out Antirrinhums (Snap dragons)

Posted: 28/04/2013 at 12:30

I asked this question once on a gardening forum (forgotten which) but I didn't get many replies. Someone said they didn't, someone said you should. I've pinched some of mine and I'll see what happens, but the ones I pinched (about 6" tall) are bushier than the others, but it's too soon to tell.
