HELLO FORKERS!

The ballet was lovely. I hope you enjoy Swan Lake as much, Lovetogarden.

Why do they put all the programmes I want to watch on the at the same time on the same evening? Bother them.

Is the soil very wet? They like well drained soil. They also prefer sun and I see that it's the north east side that is affected. Has it been colder than usual this winter where you are?

It's a lovely afternoon, but we are going to the cinema to see Prokofiev's ballet "Romeo and Juliette", live from Moscow with the Bolshoi Ballet.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Oh good, I also bought climbing Crown Princess Margareta when we went to David Austin's last June.

Morning all.

Lovely neighbours BM. Horses are usually gentle animals, it's just their size that makes them scarey! Loved that link, Dove. Those big ones are usually the gentlest of all.

More sunshine.

I've been outside nearly all day today. 17° in the shade, hot in the sun. Heating is now installed in the GH, hope seedlings will be OK.

We even had cauliflower cheese for lunch sitting outside in the sunshine.

Bekkie, I don't think my dog's pee is strong enough, pampas grass is still standing!

 Looked like a bush fire!

I remember your garden, John, and when you made the herb bed.

The sky was deep red tonight.

Lovely crocuses, KEF.

Now that OH has installed the electricity in the greenhouse I have moved the electric propagators there, containing tomatoes (4 sorts), Zinnias, Dahlias, Petunias (4 sorts) and various seed trays with things such as Cosmos and Lobelia. There is a warm cable buried in a sand bed and a heated mat (new) to sit seed trays on, also a little electric heater, so I hope it will be warm enough and frost free. Bubble wrap around the walls.

Have swept the kitchen terrace and pruned 2 red David Austin climbing roses and an epimedium. I have been told that Viagra comes from epimediums! Didn't know that!

sweetcorn

When sweetcorn is planted in the ground the classic plant to grow under it is butternut squash, which wanders about at the corn's feet, out of the way. I've never grown sweetcorn in containers. It's tall and will give some shade.
