HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Evening all - sorry Ma is fading Dove. Comforting for her to have you there as she dozes though. I'm sure she 'knows' even in her own little world. 

Glad Hosta's knee is ok.  You'll be springing into action before long 

Haven't been on for a day or two really - things to do people to see, ie builders. My garden currently looks like a bomb has dropped on it...not sure it'll look right for a very long time. Wish I hadn't bothered doing the grass at the back or the paths...

Moving plants this summer

If they're in the ground, you can't take them unless you've stated in the terms of the sale that you're doing so. It's regarded as a fixture. If in pots, they're moveable. 

I'd discuss it with your lawyer first,  take cuttings/divisions, or buy new ones for the new garden.

Hurrah Laura! It just shows that following a sensible procedure, it can be straightforward. 

You'll be moving it around every year now

Have you looked at the hedging specialists online Lou? They supply it in different sizes and the more you buy, the cheaper it becomes.

Frog spawn at last.

I rescued some spawn from the hill on Saturday...a  rather short sighted  frog obviously couldn't find the little pools nearby....

Hey Solent Wind - what are you gonna keep in your shed then?  

Dove - I hope you left a note...  I had to address a man not long ago when he drove in at an angle beside me and disappeared. Fortunately I was in the car when he came back and as I drove forward to let my daughter in  (she couldn't have opened the door) I wound down the window and said 'next time leave me a tin opener' . He apologised. 

Ohhh... the floor washing of the plaster dust obelixx...don't remind me...

I haven't commented on the 'in or out' thread...I don't feel equipped to make a decision because I don't know how much truth is being spoken by either camp. I don't believe much of what politicians tell us at any point, so how do we sort the truth from the lies.... 

small wildlife pond but not much wildlife?

daisy - if you want to keep the container, there's no reason why you can't add a little area next to it with a liner. Some planting in between to disguise the 'join' and you'll have the best of both worlds. I'd still make sure you have access to the deep bit as creatures can fall in and not get back out. Toads will prefer a bit of shallower water to get into.  

Newbie here, bulb lover

I've just planted up some Acidanthera - or whatever they call them now! Peacock orchid is their common name. They're not hardy so mine are in pots and will go out when they have a bit of growth, probably in late May/early June. You can still get them in lots of GCs and supermarkets as well.  

You'll still get lilies for summer flowering, again - GCs and sometimes supermarkets or the cheapo outlets like B&M etc.

Oh Lyn - it's hellish that you're banging your head off a brick wall all the time, when you should be able to spend time with your Dad. doc's right - you're wonderful, and I'm sure your Dad knows that. Nobody could be doing more than you already are.

All my love to both of you x
