HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all 

It's a bit wet outside (possible understatement)   I know I wanted the waterbutts filled up but honestly, this is a bit excessive - I wanted  to get out into the garden   and also, a friend on my other forum is getting wed today up there in the Midlands - so if Fairy could wave her wand ............... 

HELLO FORKERS!

Sweet dreams OL 

Just watching GW - love that new dark-leaved Honesty - did Carol say it's called 'Chedgrave'?  That's a village in Norfolk 

Geranium 'Rozanne'

I find they grow quite large, even in their first year - I would think that one plant would fill a 14" basket.

Fidget - I find that double sided sticky tape on the bed or chair works well with small children and the elderly 

Disease on outdoor plants

It does look like frost damage to me -  and it can vary within a very small area - when we had those frosts the other day they were sharp at the front of the house, new growth on the neighbour's lilac was burnt, but we didn't get any frost at the back of the house - it stayed +2C

Hello folks   I'm back 

What suggestions have you lot got to punish the second person in a month who has driven into son's beloved Alfa Romeo while parked in a car park and does at least £1,000 of damage???   This one took a look at what he'd done then drove off   

Fortunately there were witnesses who got his number plate and description.  

All I can say is it's a good job son was in the auction house and not the car park!!! 

Tomatoes - possibly my second mistake of the year!!!!

Don't fret  - they'll be fine - the Miracle Gro does have added fertiliser, but so do all composts - I wouldn't expect flowers yet 

What varieties have you got?
