HELLO FORKERS!

Very wet day in Derbyshire today. Roads running with water and white van man 5 foot off my bumper!!!! I havn't even ventured up the garden to check on the greenhouse. It will wait until morning.

Who needs springwatch?

Mummy fox and cubs on the lawn.  Yesterday I had a bullfinch taking seeds off the forgetmenots. The woodpecker  was hunting in the corner of the lawn.  Simple things can give so much pleasure.

I watched one yesterday. I think they spent more on the garden than my house is worth. 200 lavender and 3mature olive trees would be more than my car is worth.

Some beautiful new tree poppy cultivars are coming out of Japan. I have the very old fashioned P.delavayi species. It has multiple  woody stems  all winter, unlike herbaceous paeonies which go below ground to a rootstock in winter.

growing cosmos

Posted: 28/05/2014 at 07:05

I grow cosmos in 3inch pots and plant out at about 9 inch tall.

I have a few that cannot go in their space yet, so I have potted them on in 6 inch pots.

That way they will have a good woody stem when they go out and resist the slugs better.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
