Good Morning Lovely Peeps
Isn't it amazing what abit of sunshine can do to your mood. No wonder Verd is always smiling. Might have to start remembering where I hid my summer wardrobe (its not extensive, but I do have a couple of short sleevedshirts somewhere)
I use the vertical string method too - a la Beechgrove- have found it much easier than canes, and nothing ever collapses that way(have had a few cane disasters in my time
Love the blue of that delphinium - and a very pretty poppy has snuck into the background too
I have two clematis in pots, and I did line them with bubblewrap (about 5years ago now)- i was following a tip from the GW magazine at the time. I feed every year with the osmacote slow release feed pellets, and they are doing really well. Mine are the summer flowering, Group 3 varieties though - not tried it with an evergreen.
Sanjy - I've been admiring your wall plant holder - even more so now I know it was once a gate. And your fireplace is a masterpiece.
Lovely blues Hefty (my favourite colour flower too), and lovely space flowersintherain
Keep the pics coming everyone.....how I love this thread
Felled lupins, but other than that, unscathed. Surprised there weren't more branches down, gven they are in full leaf
Jo - i've waited 3 years for flowers, but have more than one spike per plant this year. Don't know about moving though. My crocosmias have all flowered in their first year.
i'm not a great mover of plants (too timid) but others on here do it all the time, so I must get braver....nothing ventured, as they say
Hoping so Fidget Pleased to say that was the only damage I could see though - lots more that could have been mullered seems to have survived. And I get cut flowers for the table ......did I ever mention my annoying Pollyanna tendencies
Well done Winter
Just got home to survey the damage .....tis an ill wind etc etc
Mmmmmm Can I have some brain food too please
