HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 07:20

Hello MrsG 

Wish Clari had won the lottery - looks like they're making her redundant 

Yes, Lily has handed her notice in - she's going to join me in utter idleness 

Glad the new work is good - ignore the other stuff 

Verdun's Mum's been a bit poorly but looks like she's returning home soon.

Haven't seen Pdoc for a while - his Mum's been a bit poorly too.

 

Cauliflower conundrum

It sounds to me as if you should have eaten them by now - I'd get started making lots of cauliflower cheese - it freezes well

Morning Stacey - my grapevine is at the back of the herb bed, so we've got thymes and sages around the base.  I think lavender sounds good - you could get some of the more unusual ones - I saw a low growing pale pink one the other day - looked lovely. 

Leggy Violas

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 06:51

I regard violas as a winter plant. They do tend to get leggy in the summer.

At this time of year I'd cut them hard back and re-pot.  

You can use some of the material you cut off as cuttings to increase the  number of plants you have  http://www.gardenhealth.com/august/viola-cuttings-for-winterspring-displays 

Good luck 

Onion Fly

I've never had to deal with it myself thank goodness, but I hope this  http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/advice/pests_and_diseases/identifier.shtml?onion_fly will be helpful

Good morning all   It's soggy here, but at least the wind has dropped.  Lots of tidying and staking to be done when it dries out a little.  

Panda - Hurrah!!! 

OL, hwk here today too - I need to get the polisher out and tackle the parquet - hasn't been done properly for ages.  

Verdun - glad you enjoyed your meal - is Mum going home today?

Morning Daisy 

 

Flowers on the beach

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 06:11

I agree Salino - Sea Rocket.

There are quite a few specialist plants that grow on beaches, but they are getting rarer and rarer - it's lovely to find the quieter beaches where they can grow undisturbed 

Who knows their roses?

When taking your photo, please include pics of foliage and the shape of the buds and semi-open blooms - all can be helpful. 

I do hope your SIL is better soon.
