Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 10/09/2013 at 21:10

Hello folks  Well the morning turned sunny for a little while - since then we've had torrential rain and wind - I've been out and picked some raspberries in the pouring rain and popped them in the freezer to do something delightful for Christmas at a later date. I've also been out in the rain and filled the hedgehogs dishes and put them into sheltered corners - and we've got the fire on in the sitting room.  

I think that 'A' word is upon us

Not iris, but thought I'd mention that deep rose pink tulips layered with scilla or muscari, timed to come out at the same time look lovely together.

Hello folks - Dog-tired-Dove here   work does that to me 

Where are you all?  Oh, by the way, we've had heavy rain all evening, so at last the butts ae filling up

Not anything like as much as me 

Good morning Mrs G   Well, winter draws on   We need these cold nights to give us the beautiful autumn colours - should get some amazing leaf colour after this long hot summer shouldn't we?  And the bulbs and seeds need the cold spell so that they grow in the spring.  And a cold and wet winter is a good excuse for gardeners to sit indoors by the fire with their feet up and roast chestnuts

Good morning Chicky - that was your 1000 post!

Haven't seen the online tutorial, but this talks about large deep pots.  If you decide to 'pot them on' I don't see that would be a problem this early on.
