HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 09:32

Bonjour.

Going to the Doc this morning as I'm still coughing after the bronchitis in February.

Rained in the night, but the sun is trying to come out.

Forsythia suspensa

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 23:17

If that needs a prune then you should see mine! When I planted it over 20 years ago I had a book about shrubs which said Forsythia doesn't need pruning, so I didn't. It's huge with a dead middle now.

It could well be suspensa if it has weeping branches.

I'm sorry to hear that, Dove, but it's good that it was peaceful. Does Ma know and will she understand? I hope she isn't distressed. Hugs for you ((  ))

My favourites are Florentines, yummy dried fruit, nuts and chocolate. Otherwise chocolate Hobnobs.

 

Advice on planting agapanthus

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 19:02

Yes, they don't like lots of room or they make lots of leaves and no flowers. They like sunshine.

We went to a local town to put flyers for OH's choir's Easter Concert and the Open Gardens scheme in the tourist office, but they were shut. So OH took me out to lunch instead

In the afternoon I thought I would sow some peas, but I only managed half a row of Mange-tout as the rain came down. Pricked out some seedlings in the GH.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Looks interesting Denno. What are you going to plant in it?

I sowed some mange-tout peas today, but had to stop as it rained, so did some more pricking out of seedlings in the GH.

Good morning Marion.

Hot fudge cake, yum  Glad you had a good day.

Weed membrane good or bad?

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 09:21

If it is plastic sheeting that doesn't drain then you will have to change it for a permeable membrane. It lets water through and stops it evaporating too quickly so plants don't dry out so soon. You just cut holes in it for planting.

Thank you David. £3 is more reasonable than most.
