'Yellow' young pine trees

Posted: 12/06/2013 at 21:29

What sort of size is it and what size of pot is it in?

Can you do a pic Phil?

Froghopper- same thing as cuckoo spit bug I think. They don't really do any harm Jess. You can spray them off with the hose.

Rodgy -no probs  re that new Iris of mine - I think I might have to investigate a bit to get it's name, but I'm not too bothered.  It's so beautiful I don't care what it's called! I only like the old roses that are all velvety and crumpled like paeonies, but I've never really had any. Might try a few though- climbers possibly.

Don't recall Jacob's L being scented either! Verd - I'd only have the white one now if I bought it- don't like blue flowers...what am I like!


I'm loving little Viola 'Mollie Sanderson' just now- so black with a little yellow eye

Thalictrum is lovely - I had  a purple one which worked like Verb Bonariensis. The buds were like tiny bunches of grapes. Lovely. I love the name too

Taxus- for structure it's hard to beat.

Yellow with magenta pet hate. Acid green foliage yes but not yellow.

Funny bunch aren't we!

Can I have Tea? It does come from a plant....

Good Evening FORKERS

Fish and chips sounds very good WW and always better by the sea! 

KEF I just did my weed n feed this afternoon and there definitely  won't be anything left !

Gilly- apologies for not wishing you Happy Birthday - or Hippo Birdy as we call it - been busy today so not caught up on here properly. Cake looks magnificent 

I notice an absence of candles though....were you worried the Fire Brigade might be too busy to attend....?

Hee hee Verd- yes I stole your sun.... No cake for the naughty fairy..

And Maud- like everyon else-  thinking of you too xx

GG- I thought we were getting a pic of your OH when you you said it was your tiny pride and joy....

Cracking pix again everyone! I'm not a rose lover but I love those crinkly voluptuous ones....ooh err Matron..

GG- I opted out but still get them  I've listed them as spam and I just check that now and again in case there's a PM. I do the same as you and nut- just look at the various threads to see if I can help or if there's anything of special interest, and I check the main ones I follow.

Tina- you would have needed cake if you visited Verd..

Did you have a lie down after that Bev- it must have taken you ages to write! I know what you mean about forgatting what's been said by the time you write- I'm putting it down to my age  even though I'm only 27....

Nice here now so will go out and put weed n feed on. Ground will be more amenable - if that's the right word - after the rain yesterday.

Feeding meal worms to my nesting blue tits

Posted: 12/06/2013 at 15:18

LeadF- someone on here has one but I can't remember who. If you start a thread for it you'll get a reply I'm sure.

Gfantic - when I looked on the packet of mealworms it says - put them in a feeder!

When I made cake last night I soaked sultanas for it - I'll need to watch I don't get distracted next time or the soaked mealworms might end up in it instead...

BL- I'm not a huge fan of roses but that dark pink 'Tess' is beautiful.

Hi reb - love Jacob's Ladder -the white one though! There's a variegated one called 'Brise d'Anjou' which I used to have. If you like J's L - it's a very nice plant.

fence panel type

Posted: 12/06/2013 at 15:04

Hi daz - they do look like lap but hard to see as pic is on it's side! They actually look upside down. If you do a search online for fencing you'll find lots of fencing companies with pix of the various types of panel available. I used 'Fence-Supermarket' to get posts from recently and they stock all the panels too but there are loads of places which do them. Lots of builder's merchants stock them too and are cheaper.
