HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 26/03/2015 at 08:45

Gosh, what a speech Edd. I have never found you offensive, but sometimes hard to understand what you mean. I don't usually mind bluntness unless it's really unkind. I've never read the terms and conditions, well I might have done when I joined here but I've forgotten.

We used to have hoopoes here, but I haven't seen any for a few years.

I hope you enjoy North Norfolk, puncdoc. My mother's family used to have a cottage in Salthouse and Mum and her brother used to sail in Blakeney. We went there a few years ago.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

I understand Edd's remark, but I agree with Verdun. I think it is a very useful thread and it makes one realise there are kind people out there and you are not alone.

Favourite biscuit?

When I was at school the Wagonwheels in the tuck shop were enormous, now they seem quite small.

Yes to conservatory, but May would be safer.

Take care where you put the mouse traps

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 19:20

I have just put traps in the GH. Something has nipped off the new leaves on my cerinthes  and I found some mouse droppings.

Advice needed

They are normally hardy. I would pot them up and put them in a sheltered place outside, then plant them in the garden in autumn. I leave mine in their pots by the kitchen wall outside.

They should be potted on and kept in a light frost free place and planted out after the risk of frost.

Why is my parffin heater making my greenhouse full of soot?

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 18:14

I have 2 the same, one works well the other makes soot no matter what you do to the wick. OH has now rigged up an electric cable and I have a little electric heater, so much easier.

help me choose a rose. white blooms, climbing, partial shade

I have Mme Alfred Carrière, beautiful, and repeat flowering, but it grows quite big. My New Dawn is pale pink in the sun.

There is a rose called Mme Plantier which can be grown as a small climber. 7ft is small for a climbing rose. It's perfumed, double, white, not very thorny but I think it only flowers once. http://www.davidaustinroses.com/english/showrose.asp?showr=557 or Beales Classic roses have it or read about it here http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/51795/
