HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

They are as far away as I can put them Joyce! They're in a pot near the back door, so unless one of them throws a large brick or plank of wood in their general direction, they should be ok.....she said hopefully....

chicky's suggestion of the pulmonaria has reminded me of the white Jacob's Ladder (Polemonium) I had in a previous garden. That would work too

I've thrown caution to the winds and had a fish supper. Since I forked out for all the shower room fixtures earlier today, and transferred the first payment for the building work, I reckoned I wasn't going to notice another tenner....

The Ronaldo tulips I planted last autumn are about to open - they look a bit pinky rather than purpley, but look like they'll be nice and bright so that's ok  

Montana clematus

Haven't heard of that before Richard. Is it a common problem, and does it affect some types of clematis more than others?

 Is the soil quite dry though, since it's more permanent shade rather than dappled like woodland? 

There's a white Thalictrum which will give height if you need it. The white Dicentra should do well there as long as it's not too dry.

BL's right about geraniums - there are plenty of whites to choose from and they'll flower for ages.

My days of doing multiple Munros on consecutive days are over I think - too risky on the knees.

Terrible reaching thirty isn't it doc?

You certainly have a knack MrJ 

The Cruachan hills make a lovely outing Joyce - I may have to return to them as well.

Just catching up with this - wow Panda - that's terrific! Extra eucalyptus for you tonight!   

Hints on growing Dianthus, please

I grow dianthus in pots - they're very happy in them  

Otherwise - yes, as Darren says, improve the drainage by adding large amounts of grit to the planting holes and have them in the summiest part of the garden.
