Exochorda The Bride

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 08:22

Thanks Sue, KEF, AWB and Lizzie - i will let her tresses loose

Have you had deer nibble them Lizzie?  The nursery lady said they were one of the few shrubs they left alone.  If that is right i have many more planting options.  Last year's rabbit certainly thought it tasty

Wow - my irises aren't even in bud yet !  Your borders are looking beautiful - amazing how they change after just a few days away

(Ps Lizzie - your help is needed on the recent exochorda thread !)

HELLO FORKERS!

Glad you are safely home fidget - hope the ducks return for their feast.  Lovely smoggy sunset here too tonight - too far away for Sheffield to cause it .... I blame Londinium

Lizzie has a lovely one.  I have just added some more to my collection, and have exactly the same question over whether to leave the stems tied on to the cane.....  Hope Lizzie looks in soon

Anybody watching The Big Allotment Challenge

Must choose my words more carefully - nearly had special branch on their way round

Love the tulips and that white daffodil Bob - is it Thalia?

My long anticipated tulips are finally flowering, and are well worth the wait

Glad you are having such a lovely time Bev - a move to Devon sounds like a fun plan

Glad KEF can now eat anything she wants, the chewier the better.

thanks for all your get well wishes.  Although i thought i felt better, i think i was in denial (i am soooo not good at being under the weather) - soon after inadvertantly accusing Tracey of stealing ( Sorry, must choose my words more carefully), i put my head down for 40 winks, and woke up half an hour ago.  So that's that day gone

Just been to look at my tulips to cheer myself up - they are called Ballade, and have more than lived up to expectations .... Love them

OL - when i said "not lifted straight from a GC shelf" I meant the sinks, not the plants.

They have made real features Tracey - i love it when a garden is full of things that the gardener has put together, rather than just lifted straight from a GC shelf.  Might be a bargain, but it looks classy

Do you really need special seed compost?

Hi Laura - i have just bumped a couple of threads that discuss this to the top of the forum for you - hope they help
