I'm posh - so TLA is Three Letter Acronyms .... just about the only worthwhile thing yoy learn on an MBA ( Master of Business Administration ..... Haven't got one myself, but have had the misfortune to work with many who have)

Planting Allium Bulbs

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 19:55

Sure i heard somewhere recently (?GW) that it is a mistake to plant bulbs too shallowly, but you can almost never plant them too deeply - they always find their way up - so I'd leave them

Think I've just added acteas to my wish list - didn't realise they were scented too.

Archie, i planted a sedum that colour today - it was called Mr Goodbud

Successful day - all plants planted

Feet up now - early start tomorrow .... chicklet has a Monday morning rush hour driving test, and needs to meet her instructor at 7am.  Looks like an early start for me then

Here is a pic of prince Heinrich - for Panda, and Lemon Queen, for Woody

should i just give up or buy a new fork!?

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 19:34

Mr Chicky has done that to countless forks - doesn't know his own strength.  We eventually invested in a Bulldog one - expensive, but three years on he still hasn't destroyed it (and i'm sure he hasn't been treating it gently).  I would certainly recommend it.

Gardeners' Logic???

I think your logic is perfect

OH once complained about me taking advantage of some buy 2, get 3rd free on groceries - "trouble is we might be bankrupt before we get to reap the benefits of the third" .... a little harsh I felt

But well done on the propagation - its thrilling when it works, isn't it

HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks Woody - you're a star - will make notes and get googling. Sounds like you had a fantastic planty weekend

Great anemones Panda - i have them both, and they are doing well. On phone at the mo, might post pics later
