HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Oh yes   it's going at the far end of the new Sunny Bed we're working on - it's an island bed projecting into the lawn (well, more of a peninsula than an island if you get me) .  It will screen the re-vamped utility area and compost bins and also our neighbour's house to the rear, and provide the birds with a somewhat smaller replacement for the big ash tree we felled last autumn.  We'll underplant it with Cyclamen coum and  the bed will be a mix of grasses, low growing shrubs and tall wavy perennials.  


Well, that's the plan so far ...........

Just been to get our Amelanchier



Its gorgeous - multi stemmed and getting on for 7ft from soil level to top. We brought it home on the back seat of the car with niece holding on. I drve slowly to save the leaves blowing off. Nieces and convertibles come in handy:)

Just like the wild Cow Parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris 'Ravenswing' is biennial - mine (sowed last year) is looking gorgeous just now.  Maybe you bought a plant in its first year?

Weeds in my vinca

Lovely garden 


I've never discovered anything that will choke out Vinca so I wouldn't worry ... it grew wild in the woodland around my childhood home and it choked back all the other plants.  


I would pull out the larger weeds as they appear but not get stressed about it.  The Vinca will win 

Honey Fungus

Posted: 20/05/2016 at 06:43

I've not had honey fungus in my own garden so I have no personal experience to share with you, but I do know that Nutcutlet has it in her garden, and hers is beautiful ........... I think she just lets Nature take its course and tries to grow plants that are resistant to it.  


The RHS website has a list - if you have a look here you'll see that the list of plants that are rarely affected is the longest

Good luck
