HELLO FORKERS!

I think sequestrine is OK, it's a way of feeding iron to roses that have yellow leaves.

Finished the electric fence. It works! Horses in summer quarters, very happy and excited. The rain eased off, only got drizzled on once.

Of to cook chicken and mushrooms à la crème.

It was a lovely close up of your bird, but David seems to have deleted it.

Either you dig them out individually or you will have to use lawn weedkiller. Sorry.

How long ago did you plant it? It does grow tall and thin in the first year, don't pick it, it needs to build up its strength.

I agree with Gardenmaiden, but I think the first one is an allium. I have a white one like that.

I missed GW last week as was away then this week it's cancelled because of Snooker 

I think it should be longer with more detail in each item. Although I've been gardening for over 40 years I still like seeing beginners getting help in starting and I like visiting other people's gardens. I wish they could show ordinary gardens as well as big ones open to the public. There was a programme about gardens open for the National Gardens Scheme, I really enjoyed that.

I like Nigel, I have a Nigel, except he's a border collie. If the programme were longer a few glimpses of Nigel couldn't bother anyone.

I find Monty a bit dull sometimes and his garden is a wealthy person's garden, but I don't dislike him. I loved Geoff H and have a crush on Chris B , I think Alan T is fun, liked Charlie D - she was fun too. In fact I like all of them, even Carol K's over enthusiasm. Some find Rachel too upper classy but I think she's beautiful and she likes roses, my favourite. There's just not enough of gardening on TV.

ID please

Yes, aubretia. It seeds itself in my stone terrace and walls. I love it.
