Watching seedlings grow 2016

Posted: 25/04/2016 at 18:12

Thank you Kitty. I'm opening my garden for the new French Open Gardens scheme (but it's run by the English!), like the NGS, in May. Some of the plants will go in my plant sale. There are runner beans, courgettes and cucumbers and a few pots of herbs there too. http://www.opengardens.eu/  Web site is a bit slow.

Looking good Kitty.

Over 3 weeks since my last photos so here's an update. The first plants are bigger and more seeds have been sown. GH is full. I'm not the tidiest person so please excuse the GH untidiness.

 

HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

is it a wet day in the UK? 4 pages since I said good morning!

Was very cold here, saw DD scraped ice off her car. Mine was in the garage so I didn't have to, but I was glad I'd put the GH heater on.

Sunny and has warmed up a bit so out to do weeding.

I sent you a PM too, punkdoc, but it wasn't that horrid one. I often agree with what you say on those controversial threads.

Morning all.

Have to go out this morning, but rain isn't forecast so should be able to do some gardening this afternoon.

What is your weather like?

No rain at last, but colder than usual for SW France in April, 10°.

Bob's right, they don't like being moved.

Nymans is an RHS partner garden. https://www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/partner-gardens Does it mention them in the handbook they sent when you joined? I can't check because my handbook is in our cottage in England, but I live in France.

your favourite woodland perennials

Would variegated leaves do, like Brunnera Jack Frost? Geranium macrorrhizum 'White-Ness', or a white Geranium Phaeum?
