Hello Forkers - March Thread

Morning all.


I'm helping daughter make a new rose bed. Yesterday we went to a nursery and daughter spent her birthday money on shrubs and perennials, she was like a child in a sweet shop, it was great fun. Good little nursery, good variety of plants, properly labeled and very reasonably priced. Wish there was one like that near me. My local garden centre, Jardiland, is expensive and the staff don't know much about plants, which aren't properly named with the variety.


Daughter thinks she will have around 100 roses when the latest offer arrives. Lots of David Austin ones.


Looked at that site about Loch Etive, heartbreaking.

 I first saw roscoea in Bressingham Gardens in 2015, never heard of them before. They were lovely, but I've never seen them here.


I hope you have a good walk in Glen Etive. We had a happy family holiday in Taynuilt by Loch Etive when I was 16. Weather was lovely.

Finished cutting out dead wood from Felicité et Perpetué, 2 barrows full, hadn't done it for 3 years. Have a red scratch on my nose. Raining now.


Have just made large chicken and leek pie for tonight, enough for OH tomorrow if he wants it when I'm with daughter. But friend in the village has just rung to ask him he he wants to eat with them tomorrow and she's making leek and potato pie!

Frost -1° Must do some more pruning.


Going to daughter No 1 tomorrow morning until Sunday evening, she lives south of Poitiers. Her Internet is not good.


Have fun on Saturday, Chicky, sounds great.

Morning all. Don't read back, Kitty, until you've watched the Throwdown!


May do some pruning if it doesn't rain. Was -1° with a frost this morning.


Hope the hospital visit goes well Lantana.

Fairygirl, Niobe has been on my wishlist for when we next take the car to England. Will be May. Couldn't find it here.

When Son No 1 was 1 1/2 he ate a worm . He was sitting in a flower border while I was weeding.


Those are yummy bikkies, Joyce. When we were in our Norfolk cottage I found a packet in the kitchen cupboard.  OH had bought them when he was there without me.
