HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 13/06/2014 at 07:59

Good morning all   Another bright and sunny morning here in East Anglia 

Birdsong and hedgehog poo all over the garden  

I'd just like to say  to you all.  I really don't want to inflame the situation so hopefully  is self explanatory.

I'm meeting up with son at an auction in a bit, then visiting the Aged Ps, so will be out for a bit.  OH will be back and forth but can I leave you all in charge of the garden please?  I've done the watering but the runner beans and Morning Glories might need some help twining their way up the canes - do they both go in the same direction?  We'll have to check - wasn't there a song about that? 

Jeyes fluid uses

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 22:17

Please, if using Jeyes Fluid be aware that when it is diluted with water cats find it very palatable to drink - unfortunately it is highly toxic to them, frequently resulting in agonising death.  

Please ensure that no pools or containers of Jeyes Fluid are left about in your garden.

Thanks.

Climbing Rose

It has quite stiff and rigid canes if I remember correctly, so not easy to train, and then that floppy flower stem.

It does feel like that doesn't it, when a bird deigns to raise a family in your garden 

Climbing Rose

I had this rose in my last garden - magnificent flowers but as you say, very heavy - we grew it up the side of a garden seat so we could gaze up into them.  

Thompson & Morgan - issues!

Ceanothus - that's disgraceful - I'd contact Trading Standards!!!
