Hi  gardengirl, I got your seeds and the little plant, thanks very much. I haven't forgotten about your seeds, a lot of my garden stuff hasn't  been packed yet, but will send them when I can.

Thanks also to Zoomer and Potty, I've written down the swop so will send you my seeds when I get a chance

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hi everyone, nearly all packed just the big things to go. Two more sleeps, then new home!  I've got the new smileys, seems a bit early for me to use them. Been up there a few times now and I'm getting used to the idea of new garden, new plants

Congratulations Dove on your retirement, enjoy it.

Leaving my garden

sounds good Ww. A few favourites have been dug up , but it's very difficult to pick a few out! Focused mainly on the perennials, particulary those that have been grown from seed.

So far, Shanta Daisies, Purple Echinecias, a lovely mature Aqueila, some false sunflower, penstonmen. ragged robin.  All the seedlings that are on the go are coming as well.

I've got the feeling that some parts of the new garden will be damp and shady so the pulmonarias are coming, ferns, primoses (if I can see them) and maybe a foxglove. Will have to take a little bit of the purple Lupin as well.

I think then that will be it

They will all have to take their chance in pots over the winter, it would be good if some of them make it and see them again next year

I know the born in a barn one, mum always used to say it.

Money doesn't grow on trees

Too late to plant bulbs?

Posted: 02/11/2013 at 23:03

 I know that feeling,  I wish I'd palnted a lot of my crocus and grape hycaniths a lot deeper. Think they are  fairly tough, any split bulbs I just replant in the hope they re grow.

Been up there again today, I love it

There's a lot of overgrown shrubs at the back which I don't know much about. There is some established buddleia  so won't be taking mine and some sort of  bamboo, spotted some hydrangeas as well.  There's a fairly large patio area, maybe great for pots and some cold frames

It will be a long let which is great Will take some pictures

Wallflowers

Posted: 02/11/2013 at 22:17

I grow a lot wallflowers from seed and have found that they can flower through out the year.

It seems to me that after the flowers then comes the seed and the plant has done it's thing.  I would cut the the blooms off and any pinching off of the side shoots will make for a bushier plant

what's still flowering in your garden?

Posted: 02/11/2013 at 22:06

There's a few that's still going, hard to believe as we are now into November. Cosmos are still great, snapdragons, clary sage, statice, rudebekias, penstemons, sweet rockets, evening primose, few feeble sweet williams and  the bowles mauve wallflowers

Long may the mild weather continue.

Matt if you see this I sent you a pm, don't think they are working properly, but I'm moving and can't take the garden with me
