First of the bleary eyed Forkers this morning.

All dull and overcast - bit of a contrast from yesterday.  Starting to make my weekend list - weed, deadhead, tame wisteria, take some cuttings ....... and sit amongst the flowers and watch the bees

I've got blue, pink and white ones - all called something spires (obviously  the plant namers with imagination had all gone home early that day) .  The bees loves them and they flower for ages at the front of my borders.  Had the blue ones for 3 years, and they are forming bigger clumps.  The others are new this year.  Would get you some pictures daisy but its dark !  Maybe tomorrow ....

Good Evening FORKERS

Hi Dr Dove!  The salt thing seems to be a bit tricky - too much/too little is a bit of a balancing act.

Blue skies here.  Just setting off to Warwick for the morning - thats a lot of hours in a car.  Then a good friend's leaving do tonight (why is it only the good people ever leave??) so will see you all tomorrow.  Be good.....

Matty - that's it, I'm sold !!

Paula, I am on acid clay, but other roses seem to do well here (Gertrude j, Constance s, Mortimer sackville and Winchester cathedral) - they are all English Roses - do floribundas need anything different?

I have a gap in my border and was thinking of planting "the Fairy" there.  Does anyone have it, and if so, how does it do?
