Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 26/06/2013 at 20:33

Well done Bev, glad it went ok.  Evening all been out all day but mostly weeding and burning all that pyrancantha, escallonia, (possible) cotoneaster, dogwood and viburnum.  Mostly done, although there's still more to chop down at the weekend. Hey ho.  Did pot up my acer and try to rescue the bay so all is not lost.  Off to do some watering now and feed the tomatoes, then bath and bed.  Goodnight.

Nice pics Mattbeer.  I have a poppy royal wedding, it bloomed for 2 days then dropped all the petals.  I was a bit disappointed to say the least.

Just been catching up on all your lovely pics.  Deano, I think I need you in my garden!!!  Anyway here's a few from today and the last couple of days:

 Hope you all enjoy.  I'm making progress in the back garden, but nothing interesting to post on here, it's all still a bit of a mess I'm afraid.

Take care all.


Can I save them?

Well I know it's been a few weeks but thanks for the advice; I finally got round to repotting today, here's the bay now:

I took it out of the pot, cleared all the weeds and most of the old compost (I think there may have been a grub of some sort nestling at the bottom of the compost but it will have been binned with the rest of the unwanted stuff), and then repotted it in John Innes no2 and some grit.  It's a bigger pot as the roots were intact and obviously needed more room.  I hope it survives and I'll update this thread if I get new growth.

Acer advice needed

Still haven't planted out the acer due to weather and work.  However today is a day off and the weather is good so I'm off to do it NOW!!! Thanks for the tip on the cherry, Jess - I was thinking of that one as I believe it's fairly small and slow-growing.  Still having a dilemma about pot size, but I'll decide when I get out there and get my hands dirty.

Evening all, glad you all had a nice day.  Was at work, just managed to come home and water the containers/baskets and then flopped down here to read.  Anyway will watch Hidcote prog on iplayer thanks for the tip.  Goodnight!!


Forum names

I have another name for online gaming (which I do in the winter) you tube, and other forums I used to frequent, but decided that one didn't sum up what I was really about when it came to gardening.  I love daisies, anything from the genus Asteraecae.  Although my garden has other types of plants, my ambition is one day to have a garden full of the daisy family (and a few roses, delphiniums, lupins, peonies, geraniums, Daphnes, oh the list is endless!)  It's amazing what is in the daisy family, it's huge and gives flowers all year round.  OK I'll stop now!

happymarion you were in my neck of the woods yesterday! I've not been to Stone Cottage yet, shameful when it's so close! I have been to Ashwood, though. Sounds like you enjoyed it
