HELLO FORKERS!

Mrs G - daisy/leucanth-things form quite a big clump over time, but i have never seen them throw out runners.  Maybe something else ? I love how spring is full of surprises.  Ironing has worn me out - sleep time now

Thanks for the reminder Scroggin - had seen the programme talked about, but didn't know when it was on - have set a reminder now.  Just done my ironing in front of the footie - feel virtuous now.

Lots of things flowering in my garden now - will get out there with the camera tomorrow.

Think it is hornbeam - but that does the same as Matt says for beech, and holds its leaves in the winter.

Love the magnolia AWB - lucky it escaped the frost

Matt - might need to invest in some ranunculus whilst i am waiting patiently for my peonies (can't do "embarassed face" on my phone !)

Lizzie - bare earth is very satisfying when you are about to plant in it ! Make sure you keep the deer out

Matt - lovely colours. I was thinking Thalia for the whit daff too? And can't believe you have peony flowers - mine have only just started throwing up leaves

Lovely tulips Ashleigh - pink and white are my favourite - do you know what yours are called ?

Screening issue, please help!

If its only summer you are worried about you could use perennials - helianthus lemon queen gets to about 8 foot every year - or some of the grasses - miscanthus or stipa (not an expert on grasses, but others on here are)

Morning all - early start - sat on a train already. Very foggy on the way to the station - although that didn't stop the early morning racer boys overtaking with no clue what was coming their way

My Blue Tit was talking to me this morning. Now that he (and his brothers) are firmly embedded in my brain i think i will move on to learning to talk coal tit. In a few years time i should have the whole garden sussed

Panda - intelligent, sneaky snails ..... There must be a way to foil them.  Hosta growers swear by garlic spray - worth a try
