My fig tree is now 3 years old, planted in the ground against a wall and hasn't had fruit since I bought it when it had 3 figs. A lot of fig trees here in France are planted in the ground and have loads of fruit, my son's did and he never fed or watered his. Mine is now 2 - 3 times the size of both yours.

Oh dear, what's happened in France? We've come back from 5th Anniversary lunch in a pretty local town, jam packed with English and Dutch tourists. Good lunch. Off to Google to find out.

Morning all.

We are going to a restaurant by a river in a local town for lunch for our 5th anniversary. Actually it was on the 16th and we both forgot!

I was going to say "go to bed", then I saw you wrote that at 18.37!

Well, I'm off to bed, clean sheets, had a shower. Nighties.

Yviestevie, Chicky and I both posted that link with the gardens you visited on page 1 here.

I love Hidcote and Kiftsgate, but I just prefer Hidcote. My SIL used to live near there.

clattnow, to answer your question - Fairygirl is a good photographer. Here is a link to the camera thread  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/camera-talk/914004-33.html#latest

Beautiful Yviestevie, lovely colours.

I like orange, but then I like peach too, love pinks and blues. In fact, I like all colours, so long as they grow and can put up with a bit of heat and drought in summer and cold, rain and snow in winter. 'Cos that's what they'll get in Dordogne. And poor, clay, limestone soil (but I have improved it).

My flowers ..

Lovely aym, I think the blue one is Echium Blue Bedder. I grew it a couple of years ago.

What is your weather like?

But I wish it would rain, just one day, and water the garden!
