HELLO FORKERS!

If it stinks that bad it's probably rotting. Sown far too thickly and overwatered. Sow some more with son this weekend.

Chelsea Flower Show

Posted: 23/05/2014 at 21:10

I have to admit that I always end up being rather disappointed with the TV coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show. I've seen quite a few of the programmes, but I haven't seen nearly enough of the show gardens, especially the small ones and the ones that didn't win gold medals. There is an awful lot of chat and interviewing of celebrities and growers. I want to see plants, not people! People are on all the other TV programmes.

Do I need to feed Cherry tree?

Is it a yellow and pink variety? Like "Napoleon"

 

Planting clematis

I prepare the ground well and never cut the stems before planting.

Try Googling Dianthus Barbatus. But they are propagated by seed as fidgetbones said.

Hello janetclaire, nice to meet you.

Has poured today, cold, only 9°, ridiculous for May in the Dordogne. Roses are battered.

Have cleaned dining room. Did I say 2 sons and wives and 2 grandchildren (one is the new baby, he'll have Mummy's milk) are coming to lunch on Sunday? It's French Mother's Day.

Dicentra Spectabilis has had its name changed to Lamprocapnos Spectabbilis. I prefer its old name, also Bleeding Heart and Lady in the Bath. If you pick a flower, turn it upside down and pull slightly at the sides it looks like a lady in a bath!

Happy Birthday Clari.

We've done the shopping. Raining 9°.

Have found this pic of Tuscany Suberb which is a more accurate colour, feel fairly sure that's what it is.

I'd wondered about Tuscany Superb too. It's more deep crimson than purple in real life, the photo has changed the colour.
