Hello Forkers - May Edition

Posted: 23/05/2017 at 23:03

I was disappointed with the judges decisions at Chelsea. My 2 favourites, Chris Beardshaw and the Covent Garden one got silver gilt and silver. The ones I really didn't like got gold. But then I only saw them on TV and not in real life. But I noted that Monty asked James Alexander Sinclair if the judges thought that real gardens like Chris's had gone out of fashion and even Joe Swift thought it would have got gold.

Here are my May flowers, better late than never! There are Sweet Williams that hardly show and several violas behind the Etoile Violette clematis which is hiding them. This time of year everything seems to be blue, pink and purple.

It's just awful, don't know what to say. I hope no more die among the injured.

I agree with BM, Hosta. Go to A & E, something needs to be done.

Morning all.

Happy Birthday, Clari.

Have a lovely day in Chelsea, Chicky. Look forward to the pics and let me know, please, if the quarry garden is better than I think it is.

Saw the news this morning. Just so sad and scary, don't know what to say.

Have flowers gone out of fashion? The only garden with any flowers worth speaking of were in Chris Beardshaw's   garden. Didn't like the quarry one at all.

I quite like orange petunias, I grew some in 2015.

Pretty photos LG and Obelixx.

Congratulations Liri and to son and DIL.

I didn't like the quarry garden either. Chris Beardshaw's garden seemed to be the only one with flowers in it. Are flowers out of fashion?

Been planting up pots today, got quite hot this afternoon.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Planted up 8 troughs and 12 big pots with petunias, calibrachoas, diascia, rudbeckias, osteospermum, French marigolds, Scaevola, surfinias, Isotoma - but not all mixed together! Still lots more to do.

Mine doesn't flower yet. I have Barnsley and a darker pink shrub one which I cut down every spring or it goes straggly. They certainly don't flower every day of the year.

Debs, just looked back. Alexa is 12 so was spayed about 11 years ago.

I thought concrete gardens were now illegal and it has to be permeable. There are so many good Ideas for front gardens on the Internet now showing you can have parking and a car. My son is a dentist and needed a car  park when he bought his new practice so he put flower beds around the car park.
