Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Posted: 04/06/2017 at 20:26

I love London ❤️  Lived and worked there for 10 years in my twenties.  Then chicklets came along and the urge for a garden and a driveway took over .  But love the fact that I know my way round, and still enjoy my day trips there.  Their spirit will not be dampened.

Good day in the garden - pots finally planted, lots of little pots in the ground - ready for the forecast deluge tomorrow.

Finished the day off with a trot round Hindhead common - so now I've earned my glass of wine.

Have a great trip to Finland Liri

Another load of gorgeous gardens.  Love your tropical look guy, and your "let it all hang out" borders AuntyRach.  And the closeup of that Foxglove is just stunning Suz

We had Nelly in the last garden - she never repeat flowered for us.

I would repot now, whilst the roots are still growing strongly.  You don't want to repot and have it sitting in compost.  For acers I have had advice to never repot after end July, as the roots won't get a chance to grow to the new pot size before winter sets in.....not sure if that holds for other plants though

Happy ending Tbird

Did my plant shopping, but didn't quite have enough energy to plant them all .....a job for tomorrow.

Spent the afternoon in my hammock instead
