Snow! Help!

Glad that's helped ... and if you're going to enjoy your gardening you'll have to adopt my mantra

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,  Energy to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to ask the Gardener's World Forum Members when I need to know the difference 

(apologies to Reinhold Niebuhr )

Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Back from W'rose with tea bags and other useful items. 

It's our recycling bin day - I'm keeping an eye on ours in case it looks like blowing over - but the lorry's only just down the road - shouldn't be long.

There's a big tree been blown across the A47 near here and our lights keep going on and off - I was going to do some baking, but it's probably not a good idea if the leccy might go off ........

I shall get on with the knitting .........

Snow! Help!

When Doris has passed over, post a pic of your cherry tree and we'll be able to tell you if it needs a bigger container.

Snow! Help!

It's in a container as I want to be able to take it with me when I move plus only just purchased it. There's a small bit of green on one raspberry cane  and the spring bulbs are just about to flower I seen a small amount of colour on a few 😣 Are they ruined? 

See original post

 Not ruined - Ma always said that winter isn't over until we've had a 'Daffy Snow' - i.e. snowfall just as the daffodils are coming into flower ... sometimes in April.  We'd never have any spring flowers if they succumbed to snow.

The raspberries will be fine.  Honestly ((hugs))  Put the kettle on and have a coffee and a dance around to the radio - it's that sort of day.

Snow! Help!

Don't worry - they'll be fine. 

They can cope with snow at this time of year before they're in leaf or flowering.  Just make sure that the cherry tree doesn't blow over - is it in the ground and staked, or in a container.

Think we were wise to abandon the walk today - there's already a large tree down across the A47 near here, and apparently Doris hasn't arrived yet ...

Wouldn't describe you as Victorian, Nut

Think hydrangea is dead

... it looks dry there.  Maybe not the pruning but being denied moisture is the reason for its condition.  Hydrangeas need plenty of water!  

 I was just about to say the same thing ...
