HELLO FORKERS!

I share your fears, Verdun. The Bali bombings, the attacks in Sharm, the London bombings and now this, strike fear into our daily lives. Holidaymakers and people enjoying a night out, are seen as soft targets.

First 12 dead, then40, now 60.   100 hostages.   Horrendous.

No storm here. I have spent a couple of days planting. I need to stop buying bulbs, every time I think there is a gap, I dig some up already planted there.  I planted four hellebores that have been hanging around in pots, a Bressingham blaze autumn anemone, and the last of the seed raised foxgloves. Just two ton of oak leaves to bag up now. Keep safe everyone.

Hostafan, I think they had Dahlia imperialis flowering at Rosemoor, so if yours doesn't flower this year, it may next

PUnkdoc, you  could ask your neighbours ever so nicely if they have had any trouble with vandals. You could say that your wife is so upset that you've had to install hidden CCTV, but it will be handy if they have any problems because it covers anyone approaching the houses. What a good neighbour you are smile sweetly, it will annoy them no end. Of course the thing about hidden CCTV, is they don't know where it is, or whether you have it or not.

Aquilegias help

Aquilegias retreat into a thick root structure in Winter. They are often sold like this in plastic bags with a little peat in. If they can survive that, potting them up and then replanting next spring is no problem. If you lose them and want some seed to start afresh, let me know by PM, I have some nice doubles and barlow types.

We could always do an intervention for Verdun. Cold turkey... we take away his plants.

Yes. Thats why I never buy the lovely ones in bud. Positioned wrong, they all drop off.

Both of us are Saggies. Pretty well travelled, and want to see more. Its just that work keeps getting in the way.

G,day ,Pat. I remember aussie flies well. I have two of those mesh nets that cover all of the head over a hat. They drove me mad at the Pinnacles on a trip in WA. Next trip I forgot it and bought another one. They now live in my suitcase so that I don't forget them. They're not flattering but they are effective. I also buy plenty of insect repellant in Oz. It seems to be more effective than the Deet based Jungle formula that we get here. I'm not sure that smuggling something akin to nerve gas into Britain is allowed.
