Garden Pictures 2016

Posted: 08/05/2016 at 20:19

LeadF - I can't post photos at all now! I flagged it up with Daniel today and he told me to fill in the online form on the supportdetails .com site. If you take a look on the thread 'Your new-look forum' you'll see an image of what it looks like in his reply to me earlier today  

1st one is a tree peony Gd. 2nd is a Brugmansia (I think) and the last one is a Cistus - don't know th evariety though.

Don't recognise the 3rd. If you can post it on a separate thread someone will know  

How do you get into your borders?

My wings allow me to hover...

I just look for a little bare spot....not always successfully  

A few strategically placed bricks or little pieces of spare paving might be useful.

Might have to lend Dove these....

I won't be using the forum for a while

What is this Clematis

Posted: 08/05/2016 at 20:07

Try just typing in Clematis Columbine. That will bring up some photos and you can make a bit of a comparison that way.

The alpina varieties are very pretty. I have Constance which has lovely deep pinky/violet flowers. The seed heads are gorgeous too.

Another rude and unnecessary  comment  

LeadFarmer - I hope you change your mind and stay.  I'd miss the lovely pix of your garden. 

Daniel is aware of all the issues and is  addressing it with the team this week. He's spent a lot of time today reassuring us on the 'Your new-look forum' thread.

Oh that didn't work very well  

Hope you can make sense of it Lena!

HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Is there anything left Dove? It would be a pleasant change from toast.  I could manage something not too spicy....don't think I'll be having curry for a while  

I've even done some gardening. Potted on my toms and tied in clematis and a few other odds and sods. It got up to around 19 or 20 degrees - that's a good ten to twelve degrees higher than we've had on the better days over the past month or so. That's better than a lot of the summer, but we often get a goodish spell in May.  

T'bird - I reckon there was a fair bit of knee jerk reaction with the new updates.  Daniel's taken the issues on board and I think we'll see a lot of improvements soon, with most people staying here. If they can sort my photo posting I'll be a  happy little fairy  

Verbena Bonariensis

Some people do find them tricky. I find sowing them at this time of year, as it's warmer, is the best method, although they may not make such big plants. If I sow earlier, it's too cold and unfavourable for them anyway so it's not worth it.

They often overwinter here anyway without any problem as long as they're sheltered and in good gritty soil.
