should i just give up or buy a new fork!?

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 19:34

Mr Chicky has done that to countless forks - doesn't know his own strength.  We eventually invested in a Bulldog one - expensive, but three years on he still hasn't destroyed it (and i'm sure he hasn't been treating it gently).  I would certainly recommend it.

Gardeners' Logic???

I think your logic is perfect

OH once complained about me taking advantage of some buy 2, get 3rd free on groceries - "trouble is we might be bankrupt before we get to reap the benefits of the third" .... a little harsh I felt

But well done on the propagation - its thrilling when it works, isn't it

HELLO FORKERS!

Blimey Liri - thats some disgruntlement.  Most of us just shout at the long suffering OH for a bit

Your cold is relaxing its grip because its come here instead.  Woke up feeling rotten, but a lemsip seems to be doing the trick (other cold remedies are available).

beautiful morning here - still, blue skies, everything looking faintly golden.  Today I must plant!!  Unfortunately, that will require a bit of weeding first too.  But before that..... Another cuppa

beau - new house sounds exciting - tell us more (about the garden, not the house)

Hard pruning of roses

I do exactly as Dove says - a third off now, then a proper prune in Feb/march

Late perennials for the white garden

Some of my white pentemmon are still going - if you keep on top of the deadheading earlier in the season.  Similarly for repeat flowering roses (winchester cathedral is looking good now).  But agree the japanese anemone Honorine Joubert is hogging the limelight at the moment.

What's the star in your garden right now

Lily - go right ahead - ideas are there for pinching.  Didn't line the crate but did put a good layer of gravel on the base, and used 50/50 grit and John Innes no 1.
