Only just tuned in! Haven't been on any of the sites for a little while, it's nice to get back. I think if the world was ruled by gardeners we could still have world war three and maybe even four! Remember 'allotment wars'? A lot of my neighbours start interfering when I do my gardening and its very hard not to hit them....or plant them one.
Somebody been talking about chocolates? my favourite but don't think I am going to get any for valentines day, don't think I am going to get anything....ahhh

In my window boxes I normally put in zonal geraniums and begonias, they look nice with also some ivy.

Talkback: Garden birds

On the day of the bird count I was at my mum and dads - not one bird! And yet if I had been in my flat I would have been able to count loads of birds, we have all varietiies here. It was disappointing but mum and dad never have many birds were they live, mainly pigeons, a lot of grass, greenery and trees there so it is a mystery. Barbara

what to plant NOW !

Posted: 08/02/2013 at 19:24
I bort a few things Kerry to plant out but the weather has turned again, going to get pretty cold the next week so for the moment I have just left them in their containers and placed them in a very sheltered spot where it is a lot warmer.
I have had a touch of garden fever this week so I went out into our gardens with wellies and rake yesterday and cleared up a lot of dead stuff. It did the trick. Am knackered now and don't want to go anywhere near the garden.

Apparently the moon is moving slowly away from the earth.....scary. If we are going to start moon gardening then the sooner the better.....

Talkback: How to care for orchids

Posted: 08/02/2013 at 18:55
Anyone got any idea where to put a sick orchid? I bort it at Christmas in its plastic bag and when I got it home and removed it from its packaging the orchid had been sweating and it's leaves were soggy.. I should have taken it back but I didn't..
All it's flowers fell off and I ended up having to cut off sickly leaves which were going a funny colour and rotting.
I am left with two big leaves which I think are getting paler by the day.
I am reluctant to put it in a bin incase I can revive it. I have not put it on my window ledge which is shaded by a light net. Felt it still might be too light for it at the moment, I have now moved it into the kitchen which is the warmest place especially during the night.
Any ideas?
