HELLO FORKERS!

They were in 9cm pots (delphiniums) and they recommended potting on for 4 weeks in slightly bigger pots, which i have done.  I will plant them out next weekend - a couple have flower spikes already - i should probably chop them off, but bet i won't

ooops, sorry, nothing to do with gardening, but I am a bit excited

Plant names...not Latin or common but those named after people

I like planting plants with names that mean something to me - have nearly all the family represented in some way or other ..... even OH, whose name is not very flowery, so has to make do with a BigDaddy hosta.  My Megan's mauve agapanthus are just about to flower for the first time .... my niece will be delighted

KEF - your garden pickings sound fab - lovely to get reward for all the work we put in to our gardens

Bit late, but must get our box hedge trimmed today, plus a big deadheading session.  Hope to sneak some tennis watching in too.  No sign of the rain some are getting.

Went out to an old neighbours for drinks/eats last night and was able to take a bunch of sweetpeas as a present ..... made me ever so slightly proud

CLEMATIS WILT?

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 16:35

Whenever i have had wilt it affects the tips first, so you might be ok.  Might just be the older leaves getting a bit tired

my shrub from next door is not doing well

Looks like some sort of laurel possibly?

Happy Sunflowers

Love the colours of that one OL

......the good guys

I used Westcountry once, and the plants were great.  However, won't use them again as you have to sign for delivery - no good for me.  Most companies are happy to leave things in a specified place.
