Cold frames

Posted: 15/01/2014 at 23:10

My OH is about (I hope) to replace my coldframe lids. He'll be using polycarbonate. Lighter and more insulating than glass.

I used a membrane covered with sand - it was what I had.

They are phlox drumondii, I think, David.

I remember Busy-Lizzies! I still grow them every year from plug plants. Had a few ill ones about three years ago, but all OK since. Perhaps France didn't suffer so much.

A Very particular rose

This is what I came up with after searching Peter Beales site.

I don't think any rose is really evergreen. You don't give a colour.

Are There Any Admin on This Site?

I've met you before here Lisa and there are still people here who were there when you last came. The odd one has changed her name though, like Matty 2.

WW Waterperry is beautiful. We went in July 2010.

HELLO FORKERS!

Good afternoon all. Been catching up.

I don't care for toad in the hole because I like my sausages fried evenly all the way round so they are brown. Probably a hang up from childhood, having been told that the skin was made from intestine! But I like sausages.

About the wedding flowers, was that the question I answered and sent a photo of my daughter's wedding flowers?

I loved the herbaceous borders with Chris Beardshaw (who is nice to look at too). It's what I've been trying to do for years, but never managing quite like those ones. I've been to Waterperry, beautiful. My sort of gardening.

I really enjoyed this evenings programme, perennials with Chris Beardshaw. That's my sort of gardening, except mine doesn't turn out as good as that!

climbing plants

I mix up earth, rotted manure and compost for more substance and nourishment for the bottom and middle of the pot and fill the last few inches at the top with ordinary potting compost, so I don't get weeds.

September Raspberries

Posted: 14/01/2014 at 17:48

I grow September. They are about chest height (I'm 5'3") We put in supports years ago but they didn't really need them. Anyway they didn't like them because they wouldn't stay put! They tend to wander about the veg garden. I used to try to control them in winter by digging them up and putting them where I wanted them, but they didn't take any notice, so now I just work around them. They've been there over 20 years and still crop well.

I've tried other varieties, but they never last. I live in Dordogne and the summer can be very hot. September seems to cope with it.
