I love Monty & the guys, but miss Carol & Rachel. I would think that the extended time would have allowed for more woman gardeners. And I love everything Nigel & Nell. They make me laugh ever time.

See original post

 Carols been on most weeks. Rachel was on last week, and there have been two other women Gardeners with regular slots recently. The lass who visited the garden on the Cornish cliffs and other extreme spots, and the woman who did the mini makeovers in inner-city gardens. Sorry can't remember their names  and I'm posting on my phone so it's complicated to look them up halfway through posting.

Possibly the invasive thug Carex pendula Or one of its cousins.  I'd get rid of it and keep an eye open for any more.

Another Zoe Ball fan here - intelligent and articulate and has her father's gift of explaining concepts clearly.

Think Bob's got the right one - O. corniculata 

Weed identification

Oxalis - probably Oxalis stricta (yellow flowers?).  It's a total pain in the neck.  it needs identifying and weeding out before it gets the chance to flower and seed to get rid of as much as possible. 

Use glyphosate in the growing season. 

Planting now

They're not the hardy types (C. hederifolium and C. coum) that will naturalise in your garden  , but they'll be ok in containers in a sheltered spot outside.  

I sometimes do a mixed planting for our porch in the winter with some of these and an ornamental grass and a trailing variegated small leaved ivy, and plant some Tete a tete daffodil bulbs underneath them to grow and flower in the spring.  

Truffels or just fungi?

Glad you're catching up on the sleep Pdoc   Good luck to Mrs Pdoc - been there and done that - not a lot of fun but it was surprising what opportunities appeared after a spell taking on some agency posts.  Fingers very crossed for her.
