GWF Day Out: The Beth Chatto Gardens, Colchester: Sunday 10 Aug

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all 

I hope little Hedgie has survived the night - it does sound like dehydration to me, but I'm not a real expert in hedgehogs, just have them in the garden, and am used to rearing animals as I've spent a lot of my life on farms etc.  

It would be good if everyone put out a shallow dish of water at night in this weather, whether or not they think they have hedgehogs - they might be surprised!!!

It's a lovely morning here - we're paying a flying visit to MIL today, back tomorrow.  My son is going to pop over and water anything that needs watering and put the hedgehog food out - but I gave everything a good soaking so there shouldn't be much to do   He said he might stay overnight if he can get what he wants to watch on our tv. 

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Glad you had a lovely time Panda.

Under Gardeners who forget the watering don't get any supper !!!

Muddyfork - another jam suggestion here:

"Happened to me with some strawberry jam once (it came out the consistency of boiled sweets )


I heated it up with a combination of water, apple juice and lemon juice and managed to get an acceptably loose set. It wasn't the best jam I've ever made, however, and I used most of it for baking. 

I shall keep my fingers crossed for your gardening board friend,....."

Pink Climbing Rose, not what I thought it was!

The colour reminds me of Mme Caroline Testout  but colour on the internet isn't reliable and there are so many other factors, bud and petal shape and number, leaves, etc etc etc

 I love the streaky ones - they're from a mixed pack so no idea which they are, but they're so pretty

I've a vague recollection (and I may be mistaken) of hearing it serialised on Radio 4 many many years ago, but I've never read it.  One for the list ....
