HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 07:03

Have a great time Panda.  I've been out watering too, Woody - didn't have time last night as work has got a bit manic.  Lovely and fresh out there at this time though

Mouse has nibbled through covering of super heavy duty hose - now not so super heavy duty, and more reminiscent of the Trevi fountain

Later peeps

Go for it Mrs G - we're right behind you.  Fingers crossed your ankle is easily sorted OL.

Right, hi ho, hi ho, and all that

Just seen the same article Dove.  Can't believe places not 50 miles from here had torrential rain enough to flood, yet we were basking in sunshine with not a drop -strange weather

Got everything done in the end - two problem areas now look very tidy.  Pleased but xhausted.  And work again tomorrow - would love another couple of days in the garden

Look after that ankle OL - sounds nasty.  Think i might go and get cleaned up before i slump for the evening - have a good one all

Oh btw - a week with a peanut feeder hanging by my sweetpeas and the aphids are gone - isn't nature clever

Cottage garden borders and floppy perennials

Helianthus lemon queen gets to 8ft and needs no staking - one for the back.  I also never need to stake my phlox, which stand 3-4 ft proud on their own.  A couple of judiciously placed shrub roses are good for things to flop on to.  Plus heleniums, echinaceas and shasta daisies all hold their own pretty well.  

I have to stake my delphiniums, oriental poppies and peonies, but not much else.

hope that helps

Meant to say - there is a thread called Perennials taking over all about gardening in France that you might want to take a look at - about 3 pages back now.

HELLO FORKERS!

All this talk of frocks - i'm in dungarees with the legs chopped off to make them into shorts.  Very fetching. Chicklets bundle me into a cupboard if anyone comes to the door 

Too hot to garden - got the first bit done, but the second will have to wait til this evening.  Good load of stuff for the compost heap generated already.

I have a Duchess too - first year, no flowers yet.  Only has a trellis to scramble up, so hope she will be ok
