HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 21:48

Hi folks - had a lovely if a little sad visit to Ma with Wonky - she's very frail and sleeping most of the time now, but she knew Wonky was there and said hello and smiled

Then Wonky and I went to the restaurant beside the harbour and had fish and chips before going on to Woottens at Wenhaston and having plants leap unaided into our trolley

By the way - I must say Wonky is a very good driver - my foot didn't press down on the floor once - I was very impressed

Just been watching Victoria Wood   and trying to take in the news about Prince  

It's been an odd day .........

Choose just one ...

I remember going there when visiting the in laws who were caravanning in Woodbridge. All their plants were good, so anything. I have acanthus seeds if you want Dove.

Oooh yes please Gardenmaiden

Hosta fireworks ( just had to google image it )

We got to the hostas and guess what jumped out and leapt into the trolley?

Just couldn't resist it.   I also got a Euphorbia characias Blackbird  

Then we stopped at a farm shop with a lovely plant stall and Wonky bought me a lovely Aster Little Carlow

Prince......inconsolable

Good morning Bushman  good to see you - hope all is ok now

Home made organic way to kill aphids

If you use Ecover washing up liquid then it's organic.  I have used it as Fairygirl uses Fairy  and it works, but it does kill good insects too, like ladybird larvae etc.  So I rub them off with my fingers, brush them off with a brush or squirt them off with a hose.

That leaves a few behind for the bluetits who need them for their nestlings.

Wonky and I may be making a detour today which will lead us here

https://www.woottensplants.com/product-category/plantlist/

If you could choose just one plant for your garden from here, which would it be and why?

And for those of you who've got a fair idea of Wonky's garden and mine, what do you think we'll treat ourselves to?

There might be a prize for a correct guess!
