HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 11/03/2015 at 08:49

Morning all.

Going to a meeting this afternoon for people opening their gardens under the new French open gardens scheme for children with cancer. http://www.opengardens.eu/ 

Lovely day again.

Wintersong, how big is your garden? You've done a lot in it and still have more plans. The photos I've seen are very pretty.

Mrs. G, the 2 for 1 GW card is in May's magazine.

That's lovely Mattbeer, but which one is it, deciduous or evergreen?

Glad Pa is OK Dove. Your parents sound so sweet and loving.

Wintersong, your pergola is fabulous, I want one.

I've been outside most of the day, starting with hanging up the washing. Lots of seedlings in the GH. It was 18° in the shade outside.

I hope you have lots of lovely cuddles at the weekend, Matty.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 10/03/2015 at 19:27

Pruned and weeded a shrub bed which has lavenders, caryopteris, and a big sambucus Black Lace. Sowed more seeds, flowers and herbs. Lots of seeds germinating now in the GH.

Montbretia eradication

I think the crocosmia flowers are on top and so are more showy and montbretia flowers are under the stem.

There is a thread for garden photos. Here it is if you would like to see some of the other posters gardens http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-pictures-2015/598952.html  There was one last year too, Garden Gallery 2014.

Montbretia eradication

Thank you Verdun, we get very hard frosts here, Dordogne is usually colder than England in winter, so that must be it. I do water in summer.

Montbretia eradication

I've tried ordinary Montbretia and Crocosmias, Lucifer, Emily McKenzie and a couple of others and they all died. Verdun, please, would you have any idea why? I gave my son some of the Lucifer (someone gave me lots) and it grew beautifully in his garden. Is it too hot and dry in Dordogne?
