Pruning woody Rhamnus alaternus Argentovariegata

Hello Mrs MacGregor

Whereabouts are you?  I know new growth on buckthorn can be a little tender so really I wouldn't be wanting new growth yet if there's any danger of frost - but I know what you mean about being impatient.  Hopefully you'll see life in the spring

Pat   hope the evening cools down for you - shall I send you a cooling breeze?  We've got plenty here - we can spare a few

Ideas for a walled garden

Posted: 30/11/2015 at 07:25

Which way does it face and how high are the walls - the amount of sunlight available for plants will depend on this.

Anybody feeling chatty?

Just to make it clear - Hello Forkers is not My thread - ages ago a group of us decided that a new Chat Thread would be a good idea as previous ones had got in a muddle - there were too many of them, you couldn't join in with them all and it meant that some people were getting left out/ignored accidentally. We thought that one chat thread for everyone was a good idea.   

Verdun suggested that I should start a new one off so I did, but I started it for everyone.

That way it's much easier to find someone to chat to and follow who's doing what or to drop in and out as the mood takes you.  You don't have to keep up with all the goings on if you don't want to

This forum isn't like Twitter or other such  things - Individual members don't have 'followers' - it's much friendlier than that

Good morning all  G'day Pay  and Welcome to Laura

((hugs)) to Clari, and good wishes to Panda for a safe journey to Scotland and hope the funeral goes as well as these things can ((hugs))

The rest of you had better help yourselves to ((hugs)) and  as appropriate or I'll get confused popping backwards to the previous page  

Still dark out there, and sounds wet but the wind's dropped a bit

Wonky's garden isn't huge, but fairly large for a town centre garden - probably just a bit smaller than half a tennis court.  They have a large shed across the far end of it, a terrace at the house end, and Victorian brick walls along either side.

Wonky had made a fantastic steak and mushroom steamed pudding, with rosemary roasted potatoes and savoy cabbage.  I took a greengage and almond crumble and there was farmhouse cream and custard - still full

Reverse Pollarding

Posted: 29/11/2015 at 19:48

I love a well-pollarded tree if it's regularly maintained - it's when  they're allowed to over-grow that they look awful.  However, a good arboriculturist should be able to restore and rejuvenate an overgrown pollard.

Hello folks   we're home from visiting Wonky and her lovely hub   Marvellous lunch - absolutely bdooly marvellous!  Still completely stuffed!!!  Missed the tennis, but ............ hey - I got to walk around Wonky's garden    

And isn't it wonderful what happens when I start playing tennis .......

 

I'll get my coat ..................................................

 

Journey home a bit windy - that's an understatement - as we left Ipswich sheets of roofing felt were being ripped from the roofs of partially built buildings, and as we crossed the border from Suffolk to Norfolk we were all crawling at about 20 mph with wipers on as fast as they would go headlights on and foglights front and rear - the rain was torrential, the roads were flooded in places and the spray horrific.   The rain isn't so bad now, but it's pretty windy out there

Keep safe and warm everyone ((hugs))
