Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

BL, LG et al, at least we're in good company - sounds like half the country is down with it. 


Ive got a special trip to London planned for the end of the month and I really want to be well for that - I'm not going to rush things - I've seen what post viral fatigue can do. 


Good luck with the cooker-hunt Obelixx.

it needs to be on a cool windowsill away from any source of heat or bright sunlight. Only water when the compost is dry, and water from the bottom.

Good morning all  


Clari - it'll be an adventure for them 


Keep your heads down folks, it sounds windy up there (it's a bit blustery down here )


 I'm feeling a bit more human this morning - still coughing like a good 'un ...


but i think there's light at the end of the tunnel. Hope others are feeling brighter too

Vegetables/edible plants to grow in flower beds/borders

Posted: 10/01/2017 at 22:52

I've never known the ordinary purple flowered culinary chives (with hollow round leaves) to be invasive. I grow them as a border about 7 ft long around one of my herb beds - lifting and splitting the clumps every spring to refresh and increase the clumps. 


However, the white flowered Three- cornered Garlic type chives Allium triquetrum, are very invasive - beware of them!

I've grown broad beans in a cottage style front garden, among the wallflowers. Passers by stopped and asked what the pretty black and white flowers were?  And the bees came to  the wallflowers and pollinated the beans
