MrsG - all looking wonderful - glad to see your alliums (your signature plant in my mind) are performing well

Lesley - hope you dry out soon - those borders are looking beautiful in spite of the rain.  

Matt - maybe the sun'll come out tomorrow ....

HELLO FORKERS!

Welcome back Stacey - so glad you had a fab time - hang on to that relaxed feeling as long as you can  And also glad that wild swan not only survived, but flourished in your absence.

mrsG - good luck with new career beginnings - very brave, but absolutely right thing to do if your current one has lost its sparkle.... Go girl

Hope Lizzie is not in the grips of Garden Party panic  .... and that Doves house is now ready for visitors.

littlest chicklet has biology gcse exam tomorrow morning.  We all feel a bit sick.  Jokes from Verdun, Steve or Fairy most welcome to lighten the mood

But One D at Wembley Stadium to look forward to (?&?&?) on Sunday .... wish me luck .... someone has to do the chaperone thing

Morning Dove and Fairy

Fairy - this site has really made me aware of the differing seasons across the country - what with Verdun at one extreme and you at the other ...... all my daffs were finished by the end of April this year 

Growing Roses

Don't apologise Yarrow - great to hear your thoughts.  

I grow lots of roses - they seem to like our quite heavy clay.  But they also get 2 mulches of FYM a year, and get fed Potash in Feb, and roes fertiliser in April and June, so they don't go hungry.  Most of mine are now 4 years old, nearly all from David Austin as bare roots, and are beginning to fill out nicely.  Will be following this thread with interest to see if there are more tips to pick up.  And in the meantime, here is Gertrude J ....

Morning KEF - we've nicked your sunshine Hope you have other cosmos to fill its place. Mine are still in the GH, but will have to come out soon.

Got past the week's half way point - time to start planning the weekend's list.  Top is getting my pots of annuals potted up - think it is finally safe to remove the old daffodil leaves

Lobelia for wedding at end of May

Posted: 04/06/2014 at 22:26

How lovely Green Magpie - hope you all had a fantastic day.  So glad the lobelia worked out, and so special to have something you had created yourself.  My favourite aunt did table decorations at our wedding .... in October 20 years ago .... she used lots of fir cones and autumn leaves she had collected from the forest the week before.

And thanks for coming back with an update too - always great to hear how things have turned out
