HELLO FORKERS!

By the way, a friend on another forum who uses Macs etc has flagged up this new scam

http://www.wildfood.info/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13560  

He's also given details of what to do about it, so it's worth having a look if you have an iphone, ipad or mac pc.

The Kinks' Lola - a different kettle of fish entirely and The Kinks are/were much more my cup of tea than BM and they were all over my bedroom wall in my teens - have I told you I've drunk champagne with Ray Davies   Honest injun! 

But my car is definitely Lola from Copacabana - she was once very glamorous - but if you look closely her age is beginning to show - but I'm very fond of her - she's still a lot of fun

Folks - if you've had a PM from NoraGW it's ok she's legit - she's part of the GW online team working on the re-vamp of the site etc.  I knew she'd be contacting us but wasn't sure when - I can vouch for her

  They are rather lovely aren't they?  We had a few flowers this year; it was only planted last year so hopefully it'll go from strength to strength.  

I'll just mention that a few of us who live in East Anglia sometimes get together to arrange trips to visit gardens in the area, and usually a Snowdrop Walk as well - so keep your eyes open next year - we publicise the outings on the forum and we don't bite ... but we do eat cake

Not especially - I think he's a great performer and has recorded some great songs (although age is catching up with him now) but I wouldn't say I'm a real fan.

Well, if you can't move it I'd mulch the roots with some more bark chippings, and when frost is forecast I'd try to protect the top growth with a couple of layers of garden fleece.  I find securing it with clothes pegs works quite well as long as it's not too windy - then it's not too onerous taking the fleece off in good weather and putting it back  in bad.  I'd also wrap some fleece around the crown.  Then if we do get some really cold weather, if the top growth is cut back it may grow again from the crown. 

I'll keep my fingers crossed for your jasmine if you keep yours crossed for my Campsis radicans, in a big terracotta pot in a southeast facing corner of the terrace 

Memo to self:  must remember to bubble wrap the big pots!

Hey folks - is anyone else having trouble with the two threads started by Angela17?  When I click on them I just get a run time error message and get thrown off the site, but I see two people have posted on them

Wonder how Hosta's got on with the Ortho chappie/chap-ess ?
