Lovely crocuses, KEF.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Now that OH has installed the electricity in the greenhouse I have moved the electric propagators there, containing tomatoes (4 sorts), Zinnias, Dahlias, Petunias (4 sorts) and various seed trays with things such as Cosmos and Lobelia. There is a warm cable buried in a sand bed and a heated mat (new) to sit seed trays on, also a little electric heater, so I hope it will be warm enough and frost free. Bubble wrap around the walls.

Have swept the kitchen terrace and pruned 2 red David Austin climbing roses and an epimedium. I have been told that Viagra comes from epimediums! Didn't know that!

When sweetcorn is planted in the ground the classic plant to grow under it is butternut squash, which wanders about at the corn's feet, out of the way. I've never grown sweetcorn in containers. It's tall and will give some shade.

Sunflower Lady, just bung em in - nothing venture, nothing gain, if they flower  but if not then you'll know for next time and you can tell us if it's OK, because, actually, I don't really know!

The Gardeners Boy, that's dreadful, MS may not be counted as a killer but it's so long term you'd think the NHS could manage something. Hugs to you and your wife. And you've kept your sense of humour,, I wish doughnuts grew!

I haven't looked here for a bit and I see that Lily has sent me a lovely get well card. It's worked! I'm better, thank you.

Morning all. Another lovely sunny day, but there was a frost again. Must do some more pruning and transplant a Nelly Moser who is being squeezed out between 2 roses.

It's my birthday

Hello Love to garden, welcome back, good to see you here again. I will always associate you with the lovely rose "Compassion". What is the one on your new avatar picture?

Mine has been here for years too and the forest all around me is full of it. I dug one root with several branches about 2 metres long and nearly as thick as my wrist, from the long herbaceous border last year, meant I had to dig up and replant several perennials. Yet the whole bed had been dug up and replanted 10 years before.
