Geum Totally Tangerine

Cheers Verdun

I fell in love with it but the colour's wrong with the plums, blues and creamy yellows in the front border. 

It might just work with the grasses Hosta gave me for the new island bed that's going to be created when the poorly ash tree goes ... watch this space ...

Pdoc ((hugs)) important to retain the moral high ground - brain rather than brawn and all that - run stuff past us first eh?

I have to move my Geum Totally Tangerine - the colour is totally wrong for where it is - I've nowhere to put it at the moment so it will have to go into a pot - shall I do it now - it's blooming happily at the moment - or later - or wait until spring?

Oooh, you might strain your backs!  I don't want to be responsible for that - spray with a weak solution of washing up liquid - I use one squirt of Ecover to a pint of lukewarm water in an old (thoroughly washed out) Daily Shower Spray container, but you can use a bought one if you must, approx 50p from Wilkos or 99p from a garden centre.

Make sure you get the underside of the leaves as well as the tops!

Morning DD

Agree - manure is what I use - I buy well-rotted organic farmyard manure in bags from the garden centre.

It's my birthday

Good morning all   Beautiful here this morning, the huge moon floating in a totally pink sky - fading now but amazing for a few minutes.

Pdoc, sorry to hear about NDNs - horrid situation - as Chicky says, 'out-nice them', while sticking to your guns of course - it's sooooooo annoying trying to be horrid to people who are smiling at you
