Good Evening FORKERS

Gilly just saw your earlier post re the ads. You can install an adblocker. I did that but I've forgotten how I did it 

I keep the sound off anyway- drives me nuts!

Did you polish your silver and clean the chimneys? Can't call it a full house cleaning if you missed those KEF

Verd the buds are just starting to show colour on Black Dragon and they do look really black. I bought another Night Owl,  really deep purple which I love, and they are at the same stage as BD but definitely lighter so I'm looking forward to seeing it when it opens properly.

Took a pic of some of my pots today

Oh don't -fruit and nut mmmmm. Wonderful when you're up mountains - that was always my excuse anyway. You need a good couple of hills to wor kit off though

KEF- what did you do in the afternoon?

We still have tomato plants available in B&Q and GCs locally. Salad veg like lettuce and rocket will romp away quickly.

During the winter you can plan for next year's early seed sowing. So much to choose from -  not just edibles of course. Good luck with it - you''l have lots of fun experimenting 

Talkback: 10 hostas to grow

Posted: 20/06/2013 at 20:55

We have large snails here rather than slugs so quite easy to pick up and dispose of. My sandpaper taped round tops of pots seemed to work very well and kept them out.  I experimented with removing it and there were snails in the next day. I have variegated hostas (usually more susceptible) in pots topped with sharp grit and they are looking great. The only one in the ground just now is the tough old blue ridged one- sieboldiana elegans. They don't really touch it.

The daftest thing you've done in your garden

Common Carder bee

Would much rather have bees in my soffits than starlings any day Dove! 

Saw a hoverfly today - first one I've seen this year. More bees around recently too but no good at identifying them. Love seeing them around.
