HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Posted: 27/03/2016 at 10:11

Morning everyone. I love the clocks changing sort of maps out the year for me along with marking the solstices. Maybe a little too early, but I think I have my first seeds up! Could be weeds from the mpc but I'm optimistic!

There's some sun and rain here, if it clears up at all, I'll be blood fish and boning the borders. Have a good day everyone

Don't know the details Punkdog,but try and not carry the anger with you too much. It won't be affecting your neighbour, but these emotions can really damage us. Hope it gets sorted soon

Sounds like a good plan RJ,  it turned out really well last year. I love the self seeders

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Glad some have been able to do a bit today. After a very enjoyable couple of days, rain has stopped play here Been out to check temp in my cold frame and my cuttings are still standing up right!

I should make a list of jobs that I'm considering so I don't forget them when I get out there again.

That's a very pretty show. Some of the annuals like the cornflowers and poppies might have self seeded but maybe not. There's a pale blue shorter flower that I recognise but forget the name I think that one is a perennial.

Did you just scatter the seeds last year?

Snake head fritillaria

Not ever grown them but I would expect the same of them as other spring bulbs planted at that time of year. Probably worth getting some good quality bulbs to maximise chance of success.

I've only ever seen them planted in the ground. I think they like damp shady positions

I've thought about buying stuff from there. I know I can get flea treatments for cats from Holland via Amazon delivered, instead of the vets saving myself at least a £10
