I like the gardens, and the plants in the marquee. I like the back stories of the nurserymen and women, more than the designers, although I do like seeing how the gardens come together. I will be clogging up our TV planner with recordings of everything they televise ....for once the Chicklets Hollyoaks et al will have some serious competition for space. I love it
In the past I have had tete a tete as indoor flowers, when they are over I plant them straight in the garden and they happily come up next year.
Flotterstone - what a lovely name Enjoy your walk Fairy.
like Rob, i plan to spend the day getting seedlings out of trays and into pots, plus a bit of weeding here and there. Forecast is for no rain, if not exactly a scorcher.
Hope knees and ribs keep on with their recovery. Enjoy your gardens .....especially Yvie, after the mammoth Nanna duties
Wonderful Lizzie - thanks so much for sharing. And now that all the graft is over, hope you really enjoy the day. People will love it - who couldn't. Got everything crossed for perfect weather too
Not sure I'd call Panda's Dublin trip a holiday. If I recall correctly she will be accompanied by hordes of excitable Girl Guides, that she will have to keep under control. That's my idea of heroism.
its the weekend .....yippeeeeeeeeee
And those nice train people have decided not to strike on the day we are going to Chelsea (would have totally scuppered our plans, so we have been on tenterhooks) ............double yippee
I agree with Blairs - only move it to a slightly bigger pot. You should do this before July, as it will want to put out new roots to fill the space before next winter comes. If you use too big a pot, or do it too late in the growing season then it might exhaust itself trying to reach its goal (Sounds mad, but was the advice I was given by an acer nursery at Hampton Court show a few years ago)
Frances - its looking stunning - I love the clematis in the pot too. Great to see it smothered in flowers from top to bottom. Love what you have done to your space too WillDB
Sweet little chicks Frit - look like they are doing well
Hope your open day goes well on Sunday Lizzie - remember to take lots of pics so that those of us on the other side of the channel can have a virtual visit. And hope you haven't done too much damage to your ribcage - sounds painful.
You're right Hosta ....you'd think by now they would have found a better way of finding out what people know
OL - yes, we are in the midst of exams too. Good luck to your big boy with his. Spent last night testing her on chemistry, which is today's delight. As for exams myself, i absolutely dreaded them. Used to actually make me sick. Its funny, nothing else in life has ever had quite the same effect on me.....so glad they are in my past (although, 30 years on, i still get the odd nightmare where I'm sitting in an exam room realising I have revised the wrong subject)
Now I'm off to give the GH a quick check before launching into the rest of my day
