HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Posted: 04/09/2016 at 07:23

Morning all/afties Pat -  hope the day has gone well  

Weather has chopped and changed several times, so I'm opting for Glenshee, Joyce - some Corbetts there, but I'll decide whether it's one or two when I get there. I've got the maps packed this time...

Fair bit of rain overnight here so that'll have watered the gravel I put down yesterday. Robin junior was on the feeder earlier - he's got his red tummy now  

Off in a minute or three so I'll catch up later. Have a good day everyone

I've only ever had the whites Joyce - they've never been a problem in any garden I've had. Our climate and soil may also be a factor there

Probably not so easy for you to keep it happy down there Mark.  

A good  mulch in spring will help, after it gets some winter rain.

I'd leave them Kitty. They're growing well  

Once the roots are filling the pots, you can separate and pot them on. They'll slow down a bit in the next month or two anyway.

Oh Liri - that's stunning. You could never tire of that view  

...when the rain and mist allows of course  

Glasshouse is gorgeous too. 

Beautiful set of photos. You should put some of those on the camera thread too. The first three especially . Glorious

I think once they get dry, it can be quite hard to rehydrate them successfully Mark. Some will fare better than others too. 

They live happily on the edges of burns up here, so they're permanently damp. Happier with wet rather than dry conditions. 

Name please

It's a horrible situation Dave. Glad you resolved yours. 

The height sounds ridiculous Rekusu. Know what you mean about MPs too 

If only people would stop and think before they plant something....

Is the neighbour thoughtless - or are they just unable to keep them under control themselves? I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt here.

If the wife is more approachable, perhaps you could have a quiet word with her. Even tell her you're getting the council involved and say a friend has 'told you' it's likely they'll find in your favour because of the height. A little white lie might do the trick....

LP - I'm extremely miffed that we didn't do the rosettes for your show  

Our local one was on today I think. They had some slightly odd choices for their rosettes...  

Been out and finished the new raised bed for one of the hydrangeas. Just need the timber edging which I couldn't get recently. Hope they have it now or I won't be able to match it up with the rest of the run. Billhooks and Bolfracks...  

Rain's arrived here too , but it was a better day for doing stuff than I expected.
