Good Evening FORKERS

Fidget- perhaps it's every cloud'll end up with lots more of them and you wouldn't if you hadn't dropped it 

I thought you didn't need to speak French in France - don't you just shrug your shoulders and go 'huh' in a casual manner...?

Why not do the same as Singy and make a planter. Great for herbs or maybe for something you like but can't grow in your own soil

But you have such a wonderful name Bev. I'd love to change mine to the name of a teacher at my girls' school. Dr. Steingelhammer  with a schhh sound

Souds like a character from a Mel Brooks film!

I love the lantern Sue- I would just use it as one! 

Know what you mean about the curvy slats Singy - good job!

I've used an old plastic toybox to make a tiny sunken pond in a bed at a previous house. Complete with oxygenators, equisetum, bog plants and rocks for the tads to get out when they became froglets!

You could start a nice area of woodland Chris! Hope you've got a couple of acres

Forking hell was what I thought

fidget....really....language....I'm a lady you know...

Been outside all afternoon  at these b****y posts again. Run out of cement now  and my saw's blunt! My undergardener was home quite early so we got a good bit more done.  Ground's hard and still lots of holes to dig though.

Tina- just saw your post re Wimbers. Can't believe he's been knocked out. maybe the French final knackered him. What a shame.

GG thought you'd keeled over from all your babysitting duty. You'll need another holiday!

Fidget- I despair. It's a waste of breath trying to get through to these people isn't it? And isn't razor wire sooooo attractive compared to paint 

As KEF said a while ago - you can't educate pork. How true.

Fidget  - but aren't you 27 like everyone else here? 

You've another day to wait Tina....have you taken your medication?


Ailing acer

Hi Pam- not sure I can be of great help -there's plenty of people here who will be able to nail it no doubt. The weather this year has been dreadful for lots of plants so hopefully it's not  the end for your lovely Acer. You mentioned the water sitting on top at one point so maybe drainage is the issue. They do like damp but not waterlogged. Perhaps you could get it out the pot and have a good look. I know how hard it it to get established plants out of pots they've been in a long time but I think that would be worth doing first. I'd  pot it on as well as it doesn't sound like there's enough medium for it to grow in at  the size it is. Do you refresh the top of the compost every year by removing a couple of inches of old stuff and topping it up with new?
