HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 07:30

Morning all. Off for a quick look to see what you've all been doing before I go to work. Too tired last night after being awake so early and a very busy day at work getting the last of the Highland order away- right to the wire. We had some strawberries and ice cream as a reward though 

Nice spuds Clari 

I need to do the same chick- always looking at  the stuff I need to do instead of enjoying what's there, although I did do a bit of that last night.

What's IPA Dove? It's probably obvious to everyone - but i'm old and not very well rested so I can't work it out...

doc- I always though chrysographes was only one variety, but because of the similarity, I did a little research and there are quite a few varieties so perhaps it's just one of those. The flowers are very small -  about 2" and it's very similar in habit  etc.

Lovely rose pix - not a fan of them particularly, apart from climbers, but lovely to see them in other's gardens - if that makes any  sense! I love the form of those heavy,crinkly varieties.

Hi Haylar. I think lots of people use  pots full of different planting if the water butt's on hard ground - a couple of big pots with sweet peas or shrubs should suffice.You could also rig up a simple screen with trellis or that reed/bamboo stuff using those metal holders which bolt onto paving.

As others have said- they're pretty tough. Sometimes it can be the best thing for an established shrub to get a good haircut - gives them a new lease of life. A bit like us, as long as it's fed and watered it will be fine

Sorry MrsG - didn't mean to rain on your parade. I must have typed quicker!

Morning all. Been awake for ages. nice day here - pity I have to work 

Off to see what you've all been up to.

Ggirl and Panda - I will post your plants  in the next day or two if that's ok.

Evening all - what on earth have you all been drinking? Flappy birds, big birds, scary birds and  pheasants on clothes horses....

Any cake left Dove? 

Been very busy and now very tired. Potting stuff on, planting up the new tray of strawbs, and making some trellis which is now painted and attached along with the one I made yesterday. Need some tea to go with that cake....

HELLO FORKERS!

Did I hear cake mentioned....

Compost and some timber bought so I can get on with more construction work. Tray of 'reduced' strawbs also purchased  Bought a little montana Grandiflora for  two quid in Morrison's so I'll pot that on till it gets a bit sturdier.  Spent a fortune on 8 or 9 of those for the long, ugly boundary fence at last house - bunnies kept 'enjoying' them - but I see they are now thriving so my hard work at protecting them paid off. Hope the owners appreciate it but I doubt it  

Cup of tea consumed so I will have a quick look round here and then get on.
