Hello Forkers - April edition

Gorgeous clematis Hosta. I've had a white koreana one on my wishlist for a couple of years - just need to think of somewhere to put it.


Thanks for the recipe offer Obxx - saw it too late.  Used an internet one - seems to have worked out ok. 


All seedlings pricked out - as usual some of them drooped alarmingly in protest, but I seem to remember that happening before and they recover overnight.....fingers crossed.


off to find Yvie's pond thread .......

Morning


Today's agenda involves a SM run, baking (going to try a carrot cake) and more pricking out🌱🌱🌱


Lovely to hear you had a good day in the garden LG, and looking forward to before and after pics of Yvie's pond

My favourite tipple 


Busy day - got nearly all my seed trays pricked out - just Cosmos and tomatoes to go.  Then came in and took Dad for a whizz round Wisley - we took it easy, but he said it is the furthest he has walked since his hospital stay over Christmas - so that is a good thing.


Now looking forward to Gardeners' World.


Can I have every Friday off please

Gorgeous GD. Bet you'll spend many hours watching it, and its inhabitants, over the next few years.  Seriously green with envy here

Here goes - Beaus Mum inspired me with the purple stripeys last year, and I am rather pleased with the partners I picked - 2 pots are the same bulbs, but one slightly further on than the other
