Hello Forkers - March Thread

Good morning all  G'day Pat   I said it would turn warmer once you put the flannelette sheets on the bed!

Sorry you've had a bad night  Hosta - maybe mowing today will numb your brain to sleep tonight. 

That sounds like a really good weekend Chicky. 

It's dull and overcast here this morning ...

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

I'm sure you  can thin it out a bit and impose a little control next autumn, just so that it doesn't take over your garden completely.

Watching the birds in there will be wonderful 

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Nothing other than a bit of pottering done in the garden here ... it was too cold in that east wind ... but we did go to the GC and came back with a car load of mulch and compost, some garden twine, three birthday cards and ....................................... two pulmonarias (they must've had sticky labels )

That counts as gardening, doesn't it?

I've seen a Russian vine virtually swallow an old farmhouse and the apple tree which grew in the garden - over not many years they disappeared from site - not for nothing is it called Mile a Minute Vine.

Hazel - I'm sorry to hear that ... I've enjoyed your company ...I wish you well.

Goodness me   yes that does need sorting out ... it looks more as if there's years and years of some sort of creeper which has climbed over a tree .......... which may or may not be alive beneath it.

My first concern is that at this time of year a tangled mass like that is likely to contain active birds' nests and of course you must not disturb them.

I think I would watch and wait ... as the spring and summer arrive you and we will have more clues through leaves and possible flowers to work out what you've got there - I think there may be several plants in all of that.  

Then in the late summer and autumn we'll have a better idea of your options.
