HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 12:03

I've forgotten all sorts when going on holiday, despite copious lists.

So long as you have your passport, a good credit card, and good travelling companions, the rest can be sorted.

My passport came back in 8 days. Posted on a Thursday, back the following Friday.

I was nervous, hearing about all the delays, but thats sorted.

If anyone fancies a lavender hedge, Lidl are doing 10 lavender angustifolia for £4.49.  Seem to be good strong rooted cuttings, in 2 inch square by 3 inch deep pots. (Not the tiddly seedling plugs sent out as the offer.). These can go straight in the ground without overwintering in a greenhouse.

Dead easy from Irishman cuttings in spring. Just sever a new shoot with a bit of root attached and pot into gritty compost. I have a couple of dark leaved forms, but as nut says, they have pink flowers.

I know where you've been eviestevie.  I bought neon  hellebores last  February. One with a yellow back and one with a red back. Both lovely plants.  I bought the new Primadonna last week.Just got to decide what to chuck out to make space for all the new plants.

Yesterday I bought a Miss ruby buddleja reduced to £5 and a red banana reduced to £5. and then got two vouchers for free tea in the cafe. When I got home there was a voucher waiting for me for a free pack of bulbs if you spend over £10.  mmmm might have to make another trip.

You might have better luck  on a fishkeeping forum.

This is a gardening forum, although some may also keep fish.

phlox paniculata

Posted: 22/08/2014 at 11:24

I had some hayloft phlox this year. When they hadn't arrived way past the due date , I emailed. They said they had been sent but would send again. They eventually arrived mid July , even though I said it was far too late, along with penstemon, that I had asked for money back, again far too late.  1 penstemon died 2 days later., but the rest are growing, but will not flower this year. Out of 12 bare root phlox, 5 have shown signs of life, they rest appear to be dead, and certainly none will flower this year. I am giving them the full 8 weeks I was told they might take to break dormancy, then I will be putting in another complaint.  The salvias I ordered at the same time(April), arrived in June and are doing really well.

This threads gone to pot.

Funny thing is... and I watched the video..... The camera tracks the thieves taking away the turf. Since a security CCTV is fixed, that wouldn't have happened.

If the camera operating neighbour was watching them, why didn't he call the police?
