Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 09/05/2013 at 21:03

Evening everyone, that's it full time work is over, more time for me and doing things that make me happy. I'm not into house work at all, never have been, I find that a good dim light, makes it all go away. To celebrate my once again found freedom, curry and beers tonight

I do find all the male grooming stuff a bit odd, I'm low maintaince, don't do the eyebrow thing myself. Did have another look at the apprentice last night, lower standard this year definately.  Does any watch the after show on bbc 2 with Dara?

Weather been poor here, I'm glad I got on with things last week. The compost area looks good gardengirl, I've got one darlek at the moment Does the time lapse camera save things as mp4 files like a video?

Looks really pretty, didn't realise that you can get a perenial version. I'm very excited about growing this plant........thanks gardengirl for the seeds

Think I admired this plant before and just not realised what is was

Evening everyone,

Gardengirl, thanks for the pic, great to see that it's come up, first time we've divided bare roots. How's the timelapse camera going?

I normally like the apprentice but wasn't at all impressed with last nights, I'm going to give it another ago to see if they settle down..........in no way would I want to be in the same room as any of them......all ego

Strange looking guy TT, surely he must either do his own plucking or waxing to get that effect? It's not a natural look........

I'm about to start, what I call semi retirement, going part time, already feel a lot more relaxed and happier

patty, i only came to know them last year, they are small furry and tend to hover around. They have a long probosis, bit like a butterflies when they feed on plants.

Not my pic, this is what they look like.

I've seen a quite a few bumblies around as well. Duck eggs are very tasty

Lovely pictures. Really nice colours Aliesh and that's before they have opened.

I've got a few tulips here, some out and some just coming through, they started their lives in pots and gradually got planted out, they are coming back from last year. Don't know that much about tulips, think the fancier types might need a bit more looking after.  Is that the honesty to the left of them?

Does anyone else..........

Hi artjak, all hints and tips grateful received I don't buy any papers but do put a lot of the paper bills in there (I have a darlek type composter), so will do the scrunching in future.

Gold1locks, is the stirrer any good?

propagation boasts and failures

Always thought that you had to choose a non flowering stem, which can be a bit hard to find on these plants. The two I have are flowering again, bit woody so will be worth a go. Thanks for tip re the leaf joint
