Is that the quality of you or the kitchen?

Monstrous? Bit over the top.....

I don't want to live in a mud hut or a cave foraging for twigs and berries, thanks. I like a shower in the morning, put clothes on and have my breakfast (using the electricity to cook it) before I drive to work to earn the money to pay the bills and indulge in my hobbies. It also pays the taxes which in turn pay for all the services we use in life. I grew up in the hippy era. Nice ideal - but a load of old b***ocks. 

We all 'play God' in everything we do. Even if we think we don't. It's naive to think the world is any other way. 

Hello Forkers - May Edition

Doesn't surprise me Joyce. You'd think they'd notify people by email instead nowadays, but I think the system's not fit for purpose  

Everywhere looks good for the weekend! There's two at Glen Lochay I've not done and it's a boggy old route, so it would be a good time to do those. Spoiled for choice

Hi Ellen - thank you for letting us know. How very sad. I didn't know he was ill - but I saw his posts regularly. He obviously did love his gardening, and it's nice to know he enjoyed being a part of the forum. 

He thanked me privately for some advice I once offered and it was kind of him to do that. It's always appreciated. 

Much love to all those he's left behind x

Loads to choose from then.

Assuming it's just damp and not soaking wet and waterlogged       ()   Osmanthus, Viburnum, Weigela, Fatsia,  Holly, and Mahonia. Potentillas will also be fine there.  

Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Camellias and Pieris if the soil's not alkaline.

You seem to have a lot of other planting nearby Bev. That won't help matters as they're all competing for moisture and nutrients. Wisterias get very big...

Anyone know what this plant/tree is?

One of the Pieris varieties

What size of space have you got for them, and is it dry or damp shade? That will help determine the best subjects.
