HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. What a relief about Hosta! Glad Lily P got home safely after the funeral.

Mild, grey and damp here, not raining.

I wonder if I really will get round to taking down the C. tree today  It's still pretty and I'll miss it. It's a Nordman and hasn't lost a single needle.

The first 'Bramley's Seedling' apple tree grew from pips planted by Mary Ann Brailsford in 1809. You never know what will happen!

I've just seen the news too. Can't remember where Hosta said he was going. Did he say?

Glad you're feeling better KEF.

Made 2 curtains, just the hems to do, by hand so it'll take a bit of time.

My dear old Border Collie was 13 on the 28th. I think he's going a bit senile, he can only walk across the kitchen floor in one direction now so he has to go out by the front door and in by the back door.

Who are Golden Glove Productions? I found one theatre group, a company in America that deals with pop concerts and another that sells gloves, among other things. They don't sound very gardeny or BBC.

Comfrey. Can we juice it and drink it?

Edd, you may not be insane, but sometimes I think you're totally batty!

I love roses and their are often questions asked about them here. Please could we have some advice on how to care for different varieties, which are suitable to grow in pots, pruning for ramblers and climbers, when and how much to feed and water, diseases etc.

You could have a sections on people's gardens and design and another section on caring for individual plants.

Morning all, dull and grey but not raining.

The bush fires sound terrifying. I have a very good friend whose daughters live in Perth. I think that's not that far from Waroona where the fires are. My friend has gone off with her husband in their camping car to Italy.

Doubt I'll be gardening today. Still haven't taken down the Christmas decorations.
