HELLO FORKERS!

Today I shall tidy the house, rake some leaves, make some lists, take pie (homemade) out of the freezer for supper to make room for some Christmas baking being done later in the week - and I've got an overwhelming urge to do some drawing - first time for ages and ages - I'm finding ME again 

Is anyone listening to R2 at the moment - brilliant playlist today, Kinks, Small Faces, Amen Corner, Roy Orbison .....

Sambucus Nigra - help

Before I left I scattered foxglove seeds all over the grounds - there've never been any there before - I wonder if anyone will notice and put two and two together .........

I've just had an indulgent brekkie - grilled local bacon in a toasted cheesey roll, and a big mug of coffee - I suppose I ought to get dressed at some stage this morning - I'm feeling a bit decadent 

Sambucus Nigra - help

Thought so - I planted a Black Beauty in the bed outside my window at work, but the window replacement men stomped all over it, despite my having pointed it out to them - I suppose it may survive - if someone pulls the weeds out in that bed now that I've gone!!! 

Talkback: How to grow hawthorn from seed

Posted: 30/11/2013 at 07:41

Hawthorns have just the one seed in each berry. 

Can you show us a photo of the seeds you have, and the plant with a closeup of it's leaves if possible?

Morning Stacey - we've got a glorious sunrise at the moment, pink sunlight streaming in through the windows.

 

What can be killing off my plants?

Posted: 30/11/2013 at 07:27

Rosemary and many other herbs are mediterranean plants that may well have suffered because of soggy conditions.

There are all sorts of conditions that will kill a potted conifer off, including under or over watering.

Cosmos die down in the winter.   

Houttuynia cordata are deciduous shrubby plants that lose their leaves and die right down in the winter.  http://plantfinder.sunset.com/plant-details.jsp?id=1477

With the greatest of respect, I'm wondering if we might not be panicking a little bit here?

Good morning KEF and anyone else who's up this morning.  

I took a while to get off to sleep and heard the news from Glasgow - am hoping friends are ok - I'm sure they are, they have little ones, unlikely to have been out on a Friday evening, but everyone is somebody's loved one
