HELLO FORKERS!

Kef, I have dug up your hellebore, and younger ones for Mrs garden. Have you got some FYM to enrich the soil or shall I bring you a bag.? Or are you so waterlogged I need to pot it up for a bit?

Tomato Varieties

Moneymaker is an easy to grow, normal size tomato around 100g each. Marmande is a beef steak variety, up to 400g each, but a lot less on the vine. I have not come aross harzfeur before. Have you got a greenhouse or are they going outside?

A parcel has just arrived. 10 plugs of Hellebore washfield doubles. I bought using Tesco vouchers tripled up. They wont flower this year, or next probably, but still I've got plenty of others to be going on with.

Now I really must stop buying hellebores. I forgot about these coming.

The roots will all come from a central point. This point needs to be at soil level, with the bunch of roots splayed out beneath it, and then cover with soil.  Water in well.

Huge garden hedge

I'd start again, and put something more controllable in like a beech hedge, or variegated hollies. They can be kept to the height you want without much difficulty.
