HELLO FORKERS!

Yes Percy. Been in France since 1985. Have made an English garden. This forum is great for keeping in touch with English people (and Scottish, brother lives in Scotland) who love gardens. We go to England regularly on holiday or to visit friends and family and visit gardens.

Weather forecast has a risk of rain, hope it doesn't. My garden was open to deer, I almost gave up, then 3 years ago my new OH fenced the main flower bit and the veggie garden. When I first made the garden there was no bother from deer for years, then word got round

Thank you everyone, you are very good at boosting confidence!  But I must cut out the bramble that's sticking out of the choisya, it's huge! Didn't send a photo.

Evening all. Been very busy weeding the last 2 days. Having a charity garden party on Saturday, want garden to look nice, but at the moment all I see are weeds. I expect when it's all over I'll see the plants again. Nearly 60  booked to come, the most I've had. They will get a tea of sandwiches, scones, strawberry jam, cake and strawberries and cream. I have helpers. There is an entrance fee, a raffle and a plant sale.

Morning all.

I hate shoe shopping, so many beautiful shoes that don't fit. I have big, broad, flat feet, size 7, I'm 5' 3". And I have a hammer toe and the beginnings of a bunion. Yuk! Not even many of the Hotter shoes fit. And my feet burn when I stand for long.

Weeding today, again.

MrToast, you may not get the answer you want here. This forum is filled with people who love gardens and gardening. You, yourself, said that the garden would suit someone who loves gardening. We love gardening and you are asking our advice on how to dig it all up.

That seedling looks just like my baby butternut squash that I sowed direct into the ground.
