HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 30/04/2015 at 07:14

Good morning all - I've had a lie-in   Think I'm getting the hang of this retirement-thingy at last

Hope all pets (owned and/or borrowed/adopted) are feeling better this morning, and that this glorious sunshine lasts so that everyone (even the workers) can have some Gardening Time today 

HELLO FORKERS!

Oh, he's just come downstairs for a cuppa - OH that is, not Mr Fry

Wonky, I'm going to steal Flynn as soon as Winter's back is turned ...

Think I'm going to get an earlhy night - OH has a rare migraine so has gone to bed with some Solpadeine so there's no one here to keep nudging me to keep awake other than that nice Mr Fry, and he's concentrating on asking clever questions ...

Haven't sown mine yet - there are some advantages to being old enough to have seen most of it before

Pop some seeds in pots, then if the frosted ones don't survive you'll have some replacements.

That's okay.  Best read by those currently active, then forgotten again.  

But the whole point is to enable queries to be answered appropriately - none of us can remember who lives where - there are loads of forum members and new ones joining all the time - it doesn't have to be detailed, just something like - 'a quarter acre garden on clay in Mid Suffolk - exposed to north-easterly winds' would be really helpful

can you use the leaves in the compost heap ?

Yes, twist them off as soon as you pull the stalks and pop them on the compost

Baffled and looking for an ID

Agree - definitely Leycesteria formosa aka Pheasantberry and Himalayan honeysuckle.

I did Google Savlon and cats for Wonky and it said it was ok, but I think she's decided to stick to salt water for the time being.
