HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 22/03/2014 at 08:06

Good morning Verdun   I love watching adders - from a distance 

Looks like they're not the only hazard down in Cornwall http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-26687532 !!!

By the way, is anyone else having problems with PMs this morning - I can't reply to any 

seedlings coming through at different rates - advice?

Posted: 22/03/2014 at 07:32

They need lots of light - they're looking a little 'drawn'.

My OH was just as silly KEF - see my response

All sound advice above - and get out and see some gardens - RHS ones, NGS ones, all sorts -  even if they look a bit big and grand, if you look at 'bits' of them and see which bits you like and which you don't like - for example, you may discover that you like dwarf conifers and heathers - or you may discover that you hate them.  And you may discover that you like prairie-type planting with grasses and daisy-type flowers waving in the breeze, or  shrubberies with spring bulbs  - then you need to find out whether you have the right sort of spot in your garden to replicate the bits you like - all this will take some time - and in the meantime you can chat to us about your ideas

Good morning KEF 

The builder and his mate who's keen on wildlife gardening are coming on Tuesday/Wednesday to finish the pond and do some other odd jobs indoors and out 

The pond-liner will be delivered on Monday - or even today, I've just had an email saying it was dispatched last night.  The liner is guaranteed for 40 years, so should see me out (now I sound like Ma !!!)

What do rabbits not eat...

Oh yes they do eat flowers - if it's tasty they'll eat it - flower, veg ......... all the same to a rabbit! They don't read the labels 

The RHS site has a list of plants that they're not quite so keen on  http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?pid=209 

Prunus Amanogawa

Oh dear, please don't prune the top out - it'll look horrid and you'll be disappointed 

HELLO FORKERS!
