My Bristol Garden in 2015

Posted: 23/03/2015 at 08:01

Hello Marion. I was at my daughter's near Poitiers for the weekend. She'd hoped I'd give her a hand in her garden, but the weather wasn't good. Her 3 small boys were overflowing with energy and eventually we went for a walk when the rain let off. The smallest (4) fell backwards off his bike and was covered in mud!

I think you would find the photos behave better if you put fewer on each post. 5 or 6, then send them and start afresh with the next batch.

I've been with my daughter's family for the weekend and have just seen the news of your mother. You did everything you could for her and you enabled her to die in her own home. I hope your father is coping with the loss. I'll be thinking of you this week, which won't be easy for you with all the arrangements as well as the loss. But your memories will be good, knowing that you did everything you could. xx Liz

Fishy, if you are getting a thermometer then get a maximum minimum one.

That's lovely, Panda. My Leonard Messel is showing pink buds. I hope the sky is blue when it comes out.

Nighties all.

I hope you enjoy the talk, Marion.

It was cloudy and rained here today, hardly got any darker for the eclipse.

What To Grow In a Big Box

Posted: 20/03/2015 at 17:00

That is much bigger than most planters, I have roses in ones about 50cms deep. I think it might manage a dwarf apple tree. My daughter has an olive tree in a planter about that size. You will have to feed and water it though.

The other tree that could work is Mirabelle de Nancy on a semi dwarf stock, will grow to about 8 foot. I had one in a pot for 2 years before I planted it. I could have just potted it on, it was in a much smaller pot than yours. It is self fertile. Don't forget apple trees need to be near other apple trees of the right sort for fertilisation. Ask the supplier.

I get a blue rectangle with OK written on it on the bottom right of the error message.

Matty, if you get an error message then click on OK bottom right and the message goes, then just wait for the picture.

We didn't seem to have an eclipse, it was cloudy and raining, I expected it to go dark but it was just gloomy to go with the weather.
