HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 08:24

Good morning Verdun

Cool and breezy here, but hoping for warmer later in the day. Looks like we're getting rain tomorrow and Sunday, so today had better be for potting on and planting up etc, and Saturday can be for the lawns ... well, that's the plan anyway

I'd better have a look at my gooseberries - last time I looked they were doing well.  Mine are Hinonmaki Yellow which are lovely and sweet when ripe, so I'll pick half of them now-ish while they're green and tart and use them for cooking, then the rest will ripen in a few weeks' time (blackbirds permitting )

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Good morning Chicky

sambucus black lace cutting back? confusing advice

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 06:49

Hi Ninio

You'll need to tell us a bit more about your elderberry bush - is it in sun or shade?  Does it get much water or is the soil naturally dry?  What are the garden temperatures? When did you cut it back and how far?

Most of us are UK based so you'll have to help us with added information if we're to advise you

No, don't colourwash - stick to the yoghurt, paint them all over and leave them in a shady corner - preferably one where there's already some mossy growth.

Good morning all

Yes, we've got teenage starlings hanging around - and if we're not out in the garden they steal the mealworms - I suppose they don't understand they're for the baby robins

Have a good day folks
