Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

When I was 14 Flower Power was at its height - I wanted to have purple butterflies tattooed on my head ..................... 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello folks   Lunch was very good - roast gammon with a good fried egg on top, chips and coleslaw followed by Eton Mess   However we went for the Seniors' Menu as the portions are a bit smaller 

Friend has given me vast numbers of plants - tomatoes include  San Marzano, Green Envy, Black Russian, Santa, Sungold and Alicante, also two patio cukes, a patio aubergine, a chilli and some red basil.  

I had made a positive effort to reduce the number of tomatoes we're growing this year .............. foiled again 

As Alan 4711 said earlier, the rain has been torrential - look here  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-27585524  - if you look at the one of Beatrice Road, that's right on top of the very steep Gas Hill which has a 20% gradient!!!  How can that flood like that?

clematis alpina

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 18:41

How big is the pot? Clematis like their roots to be cool - is the pot shaded - not just the soil surface but the whole pot?

Also, has it been fed - clematis are very hungry.  

I presume it's been watered frequently in the sunny weather  - alpinas have a lot of foliage, that will transpire a lot of moisture in the sunny weather we've been having - it will have needed plenty of watering. 

What's this??

It's one of the hardy geraniums.

Long warm summer last year - lots of self-seeding.   They need long dry spells to dry the seedpods enough for them to crack open, shooting the seeds out  http://theseedsite.co.uk/sdforce.html

But 

Dr. Walter wrote (see)

GARDENERS' WORLD on 27 April 2014 topped the BBC 2 viewers' ratings according to the official auditing company, BARB.

I think that this is the first time that the programme has ever been the no 1 watched show on the channel.

It had 2.32 million of us watching.

CONGRATULATIONS to every on involved in producing it.

Audiences numbers have plummeted across all channels and genres - there is so much more choice nowadays than 10 or even 5 years ago.
