HELLO FORKERS!

Yes Jo, her OH has been moved back to the small local hospital and hopes to go home soon, so good news.

Quote thing doesn't work, hasn't worked for ages. So, copy and paste.

Dove said "I like tomatoes whichever way they come but I rarely eat tomato ketchup on food"   ?? what do you eat tomato ketchup on then Dove?

I like tomatoes, raw or cooked, much better than ketchup.

Have been clearing up bits and pieces outside, still stuff left lying around the pool since family visits in the summer.

Lesley and Fairy, I can add 13 to Hostas number. Don't think I can claim 27 any more with 9 grandchildren. Two are coming to stay tomorrow for a few days, 4 and 6. Wondering what to do with them at this time of year. Dordogne is so busy in summer and so dead in winter.

Glad Wonky is less stressed.

My shoulders ache today with all the recent shovelling and wheelbarrow pushing.

Morning all. Can't dead head dahlias here either in SW France. Blackened by the frost. Frost is a bit early this year, but Dordogne winters are usually colder than English ones. Already been -4° here. I'm in a frost pocket.

Anyone know what this plant is

When I lived in Kent my heavy clay soil was acid.

Mine didn't survive outside either. But when I brought one indoors it went rather weak and spindly and didn't flower as well the following summer. I now look on them more as bedding plants or long lasting bouquets. But you may have better luck than me as I'm hopeless with house plants!

If the buds are tight shut they probably won't open, but looser ones probably will in the warmth of the house. Why don't you try it and see, then you'll know for next year.

Thank you for letting us know, DD. If you need anything just pick up the phone.

Don't blame you punkdoc. It looked quite grey and depressing here at 8ish. OH went back to sleep and I read my book and drank coffee in bed. But sun is coming out now.

Morning all.

Jo, thank you, some nice looking recipes there.

Must prepare the bedrooms for granddaughter (6) and grandson (4) who are coming to stay next week. School holidays.

I've been making plant supports like that for years, since Alan Titchmarsh did it on GW, so much cheaper. I only use one plank of wood. Posted it on the forum once. That was a stunning garden, one person couldn't possibly do all that clipping.
