HELLO FORKERS!

I hope she will tell us, Pat.

Edd, Metformin should only be taken under strict supervision from a doctor. It can have side effects. Some people develop a serious condition called lactic acidosis while taking metformin. I was a nurse. Listen to punkdoc.

Of course you can change your name, Gertie. So long as it isn't a name that another forum member already has.

Never Never Not Ever

Oh dear! I like most of the plants that people hate. I even like my Aucuba shining out from under the lime tree where nothing else will grow!

How can people not like roses? But there is one type of rose I'm not keen on and those are so-called "blue" roses which are never really blue and look rather dirty. I don't like most grasses, for me grass is a weed and looks like one. Should be in the field.

I bought some black plant labels from this company, just what I wanted at a reasonable price. http://www.theessentialscompany.co.uk/labels/black-labels/

Happy birthday Hosta. Hope you've been having a good day.

I've been in the garden. Have planted the last of tulips and a few violas and weeded the long border. Have pulled up summer bedding around the sundial, weeded and planted deep pink pansies.

Been to see a friend, to look at each other's holiday photos. She went to South America.

Pam I don't get warnings on this site. I have McAfee.

Dove's already done pinch, punch and white rabbits. Thought you couldn't do it again.

Shall go out and minister to the garden this afternoon.

Rudbeckia-the plants that gives pleasure for 4 months plus some.

Rudbeckia are not all half hardy perennials. It depends on the variety. Some, like R. fulgida "Goldsturm" are hardy perennials that you leave in the border and they last for years. Others are annuals (they will die in winter anyway), others behave more like biennials, some that you grow from seed are short lived perennials that may live 2 or 3 years. Some are more tender than others.
