His last post was in May. He has a heart condition, hope he's OK. That's one trouble with forums, when people aren't OK you don't know what happened.

Morning all. We woke really late this morning, but I still have a cold.

Thinking of Matty, hope it's good news.

Must get out and deal with tulips and violas. Weather forecast yesterday was so good for the next 3 days but this morning they have changed their minds. Grey today, nice tomorrow, drizzle on Saturday.

I hope Chicky has a lovely time in Berlin.

I think the same as Fidget, that Punkdoc's wife would love another GH if it means he keeps his gardening out of the dining room.

Glad you enjoyed "Carmen", Woody, one of my favourites.

What could I choose?

Didn't think you were lazy, just thought you didn't know where to start. Wanted to push up your post for another to answer as I can't. I live in France so don't visit bookshops in England very often. My OH gave me the "RHS Encyclopaedia of Perennials" which I love, but it was printed in 2006.

Where to start...

I have a centaurea Montana or perennial cornflower which my son gave me for Mother's Day when he was about 12 and now he is 31. It's been reliable, hardy and not a thug.

Where to start...

Looks like "Alchemilla Mollis", lovely with it's yellow flower sprays but can seed everywhere.

Put all your grass cuttings, prunings, plant and uncooked veg waste in the bins. Best to use one at a time and rotate them. When rotted down dig into the garden or use as mulch. Do not put perennial weeds, such as bindweed or dandelion roots in the compost.

Looks quite a jungle, but a lot will die down in winter. You can leave it for wildlife, or you can cut down the messiest bits. During winter read up about weeds and plants!

Morning all. Thank you.

Taking it easy today, getting over the cold I caught in the UK and all that driving. The next 3 days forecast is very good, there will be a tulip and viola planting frenzy to get it all done before next week's rain.

It's my birthday

Happy birthday Fidget. Hope the Norovirus is on the way out and OH feels better.

While I'm waiting......

(Seasonal)    Why does Santa have three gardens?
So he can ‘ho ho ho’

What did Father Christmas say to his wife when he looked out of the window?
Looks like reindeer

What could I choose?

Could you go to a book shop and have a browse first? Then you could note down titles of books you like the look of.
