Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 26/07/2013 at 22:32

Evening all, even though I am meant to be resting I collected some seeds from the garden (mallow and scabia) and cut down the red campion as it has finished flowering.  Watched Tatton and GW, loved the ducks in the bath, and the other five were well designed.

GG - before and after pictures of the garden, if possible, please.

Verdun - cake!!

WW - what a shame that some people just can't hold on until others have finished in the garden before starting bonfires.

Pennine Petal - off to GC - get something for me, plantwise.  Really missing out on getting around.  Silly pain.


What is this,please?

Thanks Verdun, just wondering as well are they all pre packed or do they have to pick them off the shelves?  Me interested in what you do that is why the questions I ask. 

Tatton show nice train station themed garden and I guess I must be thinking solar system for the design of the front garden, they look similar to my ideas I have noted down

verdun - nice one with the strawberries

Busy-Lizzie hot where you are now - got cooler here now but still quite warm - oh can I have some of your runner beans as only one runner bean has climbed to the top of the canes and no flowers yet, slugs eat most, and tried to sow direct seeds not done as well.
