HELLO FORKERS!

Verdun, It is, isn't it - almost like a saw!  What are you going to plant around yours?  Will you be able to 'mask' the foliage a bit?

Looking up current additions to threads

Not daft at all - you'd be surprised how often it's been asked

Go into My Settings (click on your name at the top right) then Forum Settings and you'll find an option 'Thread Starting Page' and then you just check the Default to Last option.

Good morning Verdun   Until a few years ago I'd never been attracted to kniphofias but then I saw one used in a municipal planting near a roundabout in Norwich - it was the most amazing acidy green/yellow - apparently it's been there so long they don't have a record of which it is - but it's stunning.  Shame I don't have a sunny border - yet!

Honeysuckle leaves turning yellow and falling off

Honeysuckles are woodland plants and like to have their roots cool and moist and their heads in the sunshine - if their roots are too dry they are prone to powdery mildew and the leaves fall off.

Its a shame subscribers don't get this kind of perk that can be useful. I get the subscribers edition of GWM but I can't see the difference to buying it, only that it arrives earlier.

But somebody has to pay for it - there isn't a Perk Fairy - most subscribers already get the magazine cheaper than those of us who buy it from the shops - sometimes considerably cheaper

Note to self - must take out a subscription

Good morning all  

Light drizzle overnight - just what was needed for the lawn treatment so I'm feeling slightly smug - now the sky is brightening and I think today will involve some seed sowing.

Giant sunflower seed offer

It was mentioned on the programme this evening - we've got to see which variety grows the biggest and let Monty know.  Hopefully I'm going to receive some of the Mongolian Giant seeds

no worms in soil

I'd get some bags of well rotted farm yard manure from the garden centre and dig that in
